January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the anniversary of the day Auschwitz was liberated by Soviet troops in 1945. Patrick Hicks, Writer-in-Residence at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, has just finished his first novel, "The Commandant of Lubizec." It's loosely based upon what happened at Treblinka, the Nazi extermination camp in German-occupied Poland, as well as other "Operation Reinhard" camps.
