Holocaust Memorial Day

Today is International Holocaust Memorial Day:
it is a day in memory of the people who weere the
 the victims of the 2nd World War (1940-45).

Why today, 27th of January?
This is the day was chosen, because on this day
the largest concentration camp
Auschwitz was liberated.
You can read more about this day HERE.
I  decided to make a card with  the image of Anne Frank
and a quote from her famous diary, that I have been reading
many times and found very impressive like many
many other people who have and will read this diary.

The background of the card is made with very sweet digital rose
paper by Create with TLC. I also used the script
embossing folder and highlighted this with
vintage photo distress ink, showing the writing
of Anne that she did in the diary.

The heart brad is not a real one, but a 
Designer Faux Brad as shown in the
Technique Junkies Newsletter of
Dec 2011/Jan 2012.

Never again!

This is lovely, Hetty! I didn't realize today is Holocaust Memorial Day. Thank you for making me aware. I am hoping to visit Auschwitz some time. It is very important to me.

Hetty such a beautiful card to honor such an amazing young woman! The quote is amazing and so true even today. Thank you for sharing it with us and reminding us that we should never forget this time in history.

It's a touching memorial, Hetty. When I was teaching high school English, I taught a unit on the Holocaust based around the play, but I found articles and videos (one, a French documentary) that involved some research. It was a sobering experience.

Lovely card. I have the Diary of Anne Frank too and I have visited the place where the family lived in hiding. I saw her sister Margot's suitcase many years ago in Auswitch.
