The grieving residents stood with their arms around each other in a sad solidarity as they remembered one of the victims, a 37-year-old member of Denmark's small Jewish community, who was killed outside the synagogue shortly after midnight as a bar mitzvah was being celebrated inside.

The Soviets liberated Auschwitz, the largest killing center and concentration camp, in January 1945. The Nazis had forced the majority of Auschwitz prisoners to march westward (in what would become known as "death marches"), and Soviet soldiers found only several thousand emaciated prisoners alive when they entered the camp.

There was abundant evidence of mass murder in Auschwitz. The retreating Germans had destroyed most of the warehouses in the camp, but in the remaining ones the Soviets found personal belongings of the victims. They discovered hundreds of thousands of men's suits, more than 800,000 women's outfits, and more than 14,000 pounds of human hair.

Among the dozen deaths in the terrorist attack on the Paris office of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo was its editor and principal cartoonist, Stéphane Charbonnier, who built his career on defiance and the right to insult religion. Editor firmly stood behind his staff's right to free speech, even when it was ridiculed as provocation.  Additional shootdowns occured in a Kosher Market where four people were killed and at a gas station where a police woman was shot to death.

As Charlie Hebdo's journalists, the police who tried to protect them and otheer inocent victims lay dead in Paris, editors around the world were suddenly confronted with a grave decision. Should they mark their solidarity with their colleagues – and their fidelity to freedom of expression – by publishing the cartoons the assailants claim had provoked them? Should they instead consider the concern of offending their own readers and even the safety of their staff?
