Nazis

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day, when many recall the millions of Jews and others who died at the hands of the Nazis. It has a special meaning for Robbie Hausmann, cellist for the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. His German great-grandmother, Toni Marcus, was one of the 1.1 million people killed at the Auschwitz concentration camp. And when the BPO toured Poland last month, he visited the camp -- to honor her with music. He spoke about it with WBFO's Nick Lippa.

Local lawyers are commemorating one of the most important court cases in history on the stage of a local middle school. Members of the Bar Association of Erie County will re-enact the 1946 Nuremberg Tribunal – an event that its organizers believe, even 70 years later, still has an impact on today’s society.
