Remember Me? . . . Updated

No, not me. I’m well posted today.

I’m talking about 1,100 missing children from the Second World War. The US Holocaust Memorial Museum has posted 1,100 photos of children taken by relief workers after the war in the hope someone would recognize them and facilitate reuniting them with their families:

By publicizing these 1,100 photographs, the Museum hopes to identify these children, piece together information about their wartime and postwar experiences, and facilitate renewed connections among these young survivors, their families, and other individuals who were involved in their care during and after the war.


In yet another revolutionary use of the internet and social media in general, the USHMM is spreading the word, and asking others to check out about their online exhibition, and asking others to do their part in spreading the word about this project:

Tweet it, Book-it-on-your-Face, Rec or rescue this diary, and think of how much better you’ll feel when you learn that a family member was found through efforts involving the Big Orange Satan.

You won’t see redstate embracing this kind of thing. They’re too busy screwing everyone else.

blueyedace2’s sig prompts this update, especially appropriate here:

“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.”
— Howard Zinn

Spread the word.

  1. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment. Can there be any way you are able to remove me from that service? Thanks!

    1. I looked, but couldn’t find any option which allowed me to remove anyone from a “notify” list. Probably something on your end, though. Good luck.

  2. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

    1. There’s a backup function built into WordPress to deal with this. It puts almost all your content into an XML file, which can be used to reconstitute a fresh installation. It’s under Tools/Export.
