A Holocaust Survivor Dances at Auschwitz

More

This video depicts a Holocaust survivor—flanked by a handful of younger family members—dancing at several concentration camps, with a cover of "I Will Survive" in the background. Buzzfeed calls it "the most heart-warming Holocaust memorial ever displayed."

UPDATE: Alyssa Rosenberg points out that this isn't history's first example of dancing at a Holocaust site: Groucho Marx performed a two-minute Charleston on Hitler's grave in 1958.
