Apollo 1

 Apollo One Patch

January 27, 1967

Virgil “Gus” Ivan Grissom, Lieutenant Colonel, USAF

Edward Higgins White, II, Lieutenant Colonel, USAF

Roger Bruce Chaffee, Lieutenant Commander, USN

This is the anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camp at Auschwitz by the Soviet Army in World War II. While remembering the camps, don’t lose sight of the fact that in addition to the Jews of Europe, the Roma [Gypsies], homosexuals, the disabled, and Slavs were sent to die in the camps. It is a reality that those who hate rarely confine their spite to a single group. Once hate is accepted as “normal” by a society, it spreads to include almost everyone who is in any way different from the haters.

This is also the birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, so all was not dark on this January day.

For a fascinating view of their works visit the British Library.
