16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The Struggling Persistence of the Jewish People

This photo was taken at the most horrific location in Jewish history: auschwitz and birkenau. It is estimated over 1.2 Million people died at these concentration camps. I wasn’t going to submit this photo but after the Pittsburgh shooting, I knew it was my civil duty to apply for this photo contest.
