Memories of the Holocaust Endure Through Tatoos Resembling Those of the Victims

FSWC Reports:


As a symbol of their enduring struggle and as a sign of remembrance, relatives of Holocaust survivors in Israel are getting tattoos which closely replicate the brandings that the Nazi Party forced upon Jews. 

The numbers which the Nazis tattooed on prisoners during their time in labor camps such as Auschwitz were indelible, so the imprints left on those surviving were noted by their families following their release – leading to dozens of children and grandchildren getting tattoos to keep the memory alive.
