On Instagram (and Facebook) I posted a photo this evening that is somewhat differtent from the photos I normally post in the series work from home. A photo that I found necessary. It’s an online protest, instead of working from home. The text I used as a caption is the main text of this blog.

And now, business as usual?

The commemoration of the 75-year liberation of Auschwitz is over. We all heard and saw the stories of those who survived. And now, business as usual? After commemorating all of this, we should get back to things as they were? Like nothing ever happened?

It was always there and will always be there…
