1. For the first time ever, Germany sent a senior official to this commemoration. It only took them 76 years since the end of WWII to do this. Apparently, Merkel was asked also before but didn't want to come.

  2. The story conveyed to me by a relative of one of the teachers at the school that was shot. She the Germans were in the process of taking the children but not the teachers. However, the teachers said they are not leaving their charges and will go with their pupils, naturally to their deaths.
    During the executions which lasted over a periods of 3 days two German officers wanted their boots cleaned by a couple of Roma shoe shine kids. The children refused and they were then shot.
    A couple of German soldiers refused to shoot children and they were executed.
