You can get lost in the Auschwitz Memorial Twitter feed. When I visited that infamous German WWII concentration camp during the summer before our last presidential election, I had the overwhelming feeling that we were forgetting its terrible example — that we could fall into such evil again. With the recent violence in the streets, in homes, on television and even in human hearts, that’s become a familiar feeling. 

The power of the Auschwitz Memorial’s social media presence is in the names and faces. At least 6 million people died in the Holocaust. They were men, women and children. They had names and stories.
