The Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp, the epicenter of the Holocaust, is now a museum. It was impossible for me to approach horror and cruelty by visiting it. Especially in the extermination area of the camp, which has once again become a “little birch meadow ” (translation of Birkenau).
In the twenty-first century, the past events, the witnesses accounts, the work of historians seem to be taken for granted. Doesn’t Nazi thought continue to infuse the political ideas and thoughts of our contemporary societies, not only within well-identified extremist parties, but in a much broader and more diffuse way ?
