    For many years, I have been seeking a way in which to attach sanctity to the Auschwitz number that my father bore on his forearm. I find the idea of adopting concentration camp prisoner numbers, even if only temporarily, to be wonderful and not at all insensitive to the experience of the prisoners inflicted with these. The visceral identification that the re-tattooed numbers will create between survivor and adopter is invaluable. Trust me when I say there is STILL not enough Holocaust remembrance in the world., and there is STILL overt and covert anti-semitism, and Holocaust denial, in many, many quarters. Bravo to those who conceived of the tatoo remembrance ritual. . .I will now look into whether I can obtain such a tatoo here in the U.S., even though I am not a youngster, and am now almost the age at which my Dad died, . .carrying with him his unutterable memories of Auschwitz, Sachsenhausen, and 5 other work and death camps.
