This is one of the most haunting photos I have ever seen. It is hundreds of wedding rings that were removed from those in Concentration Camps.
I haven’t seen a single post on my dash about it being the remembrance day of the Holocaust today so I guess it’s up to me
This is sobering.

I have no words…

WE HAVE THESE PICTURES, THESE DOCUMENTATIONS OF HISTORY TO MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN MAKE SURE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN

and yet we have piece of shit Holocaust deniers

this is chilling.

Obligatory reminder than more than just Jewish people died in The Holocaust. Trans people, gay people, other queers, black people, non-white people, disabled people all died too. Do not forget them.

1890s Blacks were tortured in German concentration camps in Southwest Africa (now called Namibia) when Adolph Hitler was only a child. Colonial German doctors conducted unspeakable medical experiments on these emaciated helpless Africans decades before such atrocities were ever visited upon the Jews.
Thousands of Africans were massacred. Regrettably, historians neglected to properly register the slaughter—that is, to lift it from the footnote in history that it had been relegated to—until now.
In an attempt to give the incidents their rightful recognition in the historical context of the Holocaust, Dr. Firpo W. Carr has authored a new book entitled, Germany’s Black Holocaust: 1890–1945. In it, he reveals the startling hidden history of Black victims of the Holocaust. The mayhem and carnage date back to the turn of the 20th century, many years before there were ever any other unfortunate victims—Jew or Gentile—of the Holocaust.
Carr conducted three incredibly revealing interviews with: (1) a Black female Holocaust victim; (2) the Black commanding officer who liberated 8,000 Black men from a concentration camp; and (3) an African American medic from the all-Black medical unit that was responsible for retrieving thousands of dead bodies from Dachau. (White medical units were spared the gruesome task.)
“Kay,” the Black female Holocaust survivor, laments: “You cannot possibly comprehend the anger I have in me because of being experimented on in Dachau, and being called ‘nigger girl’ and ‘blacky’ while growing up.”
Testimonials from the Black commanding officer and African American medic are memorialized, for the first time ever, in Carr’s book. The research is based on voluminous documentation, and more.
If you are like most people, you simply have never heard the unbelievable story of Black victims of the Holocaust. You are invited to read about the human spirit’s triump over events that occurred during this horrible piece of hidden history.

This reminds me that there were black anarchists in Spain during the revolutionary war because they saw the rise of Fascism linked with the KKK and Jim Crow terrorism in the US. How many untold stories are there?

gadje: “i want 2 b take my gypsy heart and run thru the magickal world being beautiful and free!!11”
walking people: “sorry we’re too busy getting our asses handed to us by the cops to hear you.”
gadje: *dances off barefoot into forest*

yeah, I think people especially in the U.S. have this ridiculous romanticized idea of what “gypsy” means and complete fail to understand how it does not correlate at all with the actual situation of gypsy/Roma/Sinti/etc. people. for example the racism, poverty, disenfranchisement. people also have this idea that “gypsy life” is carefree and liberal, do whatever the hell you want, screw whatever family and tradition think, which is absurd.
whereas in Hungary I have never heard anyone expressing the slightest longing to run away and be a gypsy, because (1) they are racist and say things like, “Oh, in America you have black people, and they’re like gypsies for us here, aren’t they?” and “Haha, there is no such thing as an attractive gypsy girl” and/or (2) they know that being seen as the scum of society and being the victim of genocide only a few generations ago (a genocide that many people today would like to repeat, along with slogans like “Let’s clean this country,” and many others would would simply look away) is NOT somehow more freeing and desirable than their own racially privileged existence, regardless of what their race is, as long as it isn’t anywhere approaching brown.
