International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Never again. Honoring the memory of the many members of my maternal grandfather's Schwartz family from Ungvar, Hungary who tragically perished at Auschwitz. Above, Grandpa's sisters, Paula and Etel Schwartz. Paula is already listed at Yad Vashem and I'm preparing to submit testimony for Etel.
This little girl was a teenager when the Holocaust began. She is the sole survivor of Auschwitz from all the siblings and in-laws of my Schwartz family who lived in Hungary at the time.

Seeing these photos is so touching. Genealogical work of this kind is incredibly important for families and the world.

Anna, I appreciate your comment. My generation inherited a box of family photos without knowing the stories behind these faces (and, often, not even the names). It's my mission to be sure their stories are told again and again so these people live on in family history!
