27 January is Holocaust Memorial Day when we remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust alongside the millions of other people killed under Nazi persecution and in subsequent genocides. 27 January marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp. While 232,000 children and juveniles were deported to Auschwitz, only 750 were liberated in the death camp at the end of January 1945. For Holocaust Memorial Day, we share an extract from the new Polity book, Never Forget Your Name by Alwin Meyer, which is the culmination of research and interviews with children liberated from Auschwitz and their descendants, sensitively reconstructing their stories. More information about the book can be found on the Polity website. Never Forget Your Name: The Children of Auschwitz. Alwin Meyer (translated by Nick Somers). Polity. 2022.
