O Museu Municipal de Santa Rosa é um museu de história localizado no município gaúcho de Santa Rosa. O museu localiza-se no prédio da antiga estação ferroviária do município.Os trilhos foram retirados, tendo sido deixados apenas um trecho em frente à estação, onde encontra-se exposta uma locomotiva de 1909.Inaugurado no dia 7 de agosto de 2003, o museu conta a história e o modo de vida dos primeiros colonizadores, através de um acervo de peças, fotos e documentos históricos.Santa Rosa surgiu da divisão do primeiro distrito de Santo Ângelo, uma antiga redução dos jesuítas, em 1876. Colonizada por imigrantes, mantém uma diversidade étnica que convive em perfeita harmonia, transmitindo valores e ensinamentos que refletem na força da comunidade. É este elemento de solidariedade que faz de Santa Rosa uma cidade de povo feliz.Além de ser conhecida como Berço Nacional da Soja também é berço de algumas celebridades como o goleiro Cláudio Taffarel e a apresentadora Xuxa Menenghel.Foto: Emilio Campiwww.360total.com.br

Wiki: Der in Bamberg residierende Bischof wollte den Bürgern für die Errichtung eines Rathauses nichts von seinem Grund und Boden abgeben. Daraufhin schlugen die listigen Bürger Pfähle in die Regnitz und schufen somit eine künstliche Insel, auf der sie ihr Rathaus bauten. Die Regnitz markiert die alte Herrschaftsgrenze zwischen dem bischöflichen Berg und der bürgerlichen Inselstadt.

2012 marks the seventieth anniversary of the beginning of the extermination of Jews at Auschwitz. After Zyklon-B gas was tested there in the summer and fall of 1941, this largest of the concentration camps already in existence went on to become at the same time a center for extermination on a mass scale.

The Germans adapted two village farmhouses for this purpose at first, before going on to build four large gas chamber-crematorium complexes and place them in operation. By the time Red Army soldiers liberated the camp on January 27, 1945, the Nazi Germans had murdered about 1,100,000 people in Auschwitz, mostly Jews but also including Poles, Roma, Soviet prisoners of war, and people of other ethnic backgrounds and nationalities.

For the world today, Auschwitz is the symbol of the Holocaust and the barbarism of World War II. In 2005, the United Nations proclaimed January 27 an International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust.
