Europe died in Auschwitz
Europe died in Auschwitz
Sebastian Villar Rodriguez, a Spanish journalist, Front Page Mag
I was walking along Raval (Barcelona) when all of a sudden I
understood that Europe died with Auschwitz.
We assassinated 6 million Jews in order to end up bringing in 20
We burnt in Auschwitz the culture, intelligence and power to create.
We burnt the people of the world, the one who is proclaimed the
chosen people of God.

who were capable of changing history (Christ, Marx, Einstein,
Freud...) and who is the origin of progress and wellbeing.
