WWII Era Mass Grave Discovered in Ukraine

A mass grave believed to contain the bodies of several thousand Jews killed by the Nazis has been found in Ukraine. The grave was found by chance last month when workers were digging to lay gas pipelines in a village near Odessa. A spokesman for the Jewish community said the Nazis established a concentration camp near the village of Gvozdavka-1 in November 1941. It is thought some 5,000 Jews were killed at or near the site, but the names of only 93 victims are known. (Source)

As time goes on, the lessons of the Holocaust are slowly being forgotten by a generation that somehow feels such brutality could never again occur. History, however, has shown otherwise.
