Ed Mosberg’s hands stay steady as he slips into the striped cotton jacket and matching cap — an outfit identical to one he was issued 75 years ago, as a prisoner of the Plaszów concentration camp in Poland.
Although it brings back unspeakable memories, the 92-year-old occasionally dons the uniform, “so people remember [the Holocaust] happened. When I wear the uniform, they know,” Mosberg told The Post.
He still wears his original number plate — issued by camp guards as a way to dehumanize Jewish prisoners by taking away their names — every day. It’s now strung on a gold bracelet to replace the wires that once covered his wrists during his four years of hell.
International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which commemorates the 1945 Soviet Red Army liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, is on Jan. 27. But the Morris Plains, NJ, resident explained that, “For me, every day is my Holocaust Day.”

We forget at our own peril. Only a Gooferment can exterminate human beings on such a horrific scale.
To the “deniers”, this man’s, and other’s, testimony, puts them to shame.
To those who would deny anyone’s humanity, or human rights, regardless of which minority they belong to — and we are ALL a minority in some way or another — just needs to see the logical result of their stupidity.
