All animals except humans live in a continual present, with no sense of the temporal distinctions of past, present and future. Our consciousness of time is therefore one of the most important distinguishing features of humankind, and one of the things that truly separates us from the lower animals. It comes as no surprise, then, that from time immemorial, philosophers, teachers and theologians have speculated on the true nature of time. Does time have a substance and, if so, what is it made of? How do we know that time really exists? Does time have a beginning and an end? Is it a straight line or a circle?

Philosophy of Time – Exactly What Is Time?
Apparently, some psychologists believe that non-human animals ALSO perceive time beyond the moment or “present”. It’s part of our various adaptive mechanisms ... for survival & propagation.

“In recent history, ecologists and psychologists have been interested in whether and how time is perceived by non-human animals, as well as which functional purposes are served by the ability to perceive time. Studies have demonstrated that many species of animals, including both vertebrates and invertebrates, have cognitive abilities that allow them to estimate and compare time intervals and durations in a similar way to humans.”

Your have a link with the title "Lets stop with the Auschwitz lies". This link tells lies about Auschwitz.

Short overview:

When Germany invaded Poland in September 1939, triggering World War II, Hitler ordered that the Polish leadership and intelligentsia be destroyed. The camp at Auschwitz was established in April 1940, at first as a quarantine camp for Polish political prisoners. On 22 June 1941, in an attempt to obtain new territory, Hitler invaded the Soviet Union. The first gassing at Auschwitz—of a group of Soviet prisoners of war—took place around August 1941. By the end of that year, during what most historians regard as the first phase of the Holocaust, 500,000–800,000 Soviet Jews had been killed in mass shootings by German Einsatzgruppen [=task forces], ordinary German soldiers, and local collaborators. At the Wannsee Conference in Berlin on 20 January 1942, Heydrich outlined the Final Solution of the Jewish Question [=the holocaust] to senior Nazis, and from early 1942 freight trains delivered Jews from all over occupied Europe to German extermination camps in Poland: Auschwitz, Bełżec, Chełmno, Majdanek, Sobibór and Treblinka. Most prisoners were gassed on arrival.

In context philosophy of time: History is not a myth. History are facts - and who ignores now intentionally the crimes of the past, will have to live in an insane demented future.

Time obviously exists just as shape, color, number and distance exist. The fact that we can't perceive all of it completely from our limited perspective doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Add in relativity and it gets even more ambiguous.
