1. "How Do You Kill 11 Million People" by Andy Andrews.


“In everything he writes, Andy offers perspective that leaves you seeing your world and your life in a completely different way. He mines history for examples and then applies what he has learned to his readers’ lives...”
“Through the lens of the Holocaust, Andy examines how Hitler was able to get eleven million people to march to their deaths with so little resistance. In short, he lied to them. And, sadly, they believed it. If the truth is what sets us free, we need to ask what it means to live in a society where truth is absent, where we are routinely lied to by politicians of both parties, Wall Street, and the media. What is at stake? Can we survive in such a culture of deception? Our only hope, Andy argues, is an informed citizenry that demands truth at every level—first from themselves and second from their leaders. We must be able to separate fact from fiction, truth from lies, and hold those who lie accountable.
This is a short book. You can literally read it in less than an hour. But don’t be fooled by its size. It’s a little book that could be the start of something very big. It’s a book you will want to read for yourself and then give to others.”

“The Holocaust resulted neither from a confluence of circumstances beyond human control nor from history’s inexorable march. It happened because ordinary people failed to stop it.”

I grew up with the unimaginable horrors of the Holocaust...the numbers branded into skin, night terrors, paralytic depression..and the horrific memories told in a voice with no inflection no emotion....and every once in a while, one of the three networks would show footage of a concentration camp: heads shaved starving prisoners, standing behind a barbed wire fence and my mother would sit on the floor, eye to eye with the television, hoping to see someone she knew, inconsolable when she didn't...

3. Thanks for posting...

Your parents’ stories must be told and re-told to the last generations.
Otherwise, modern day fascists will try to obliterate their memory.

Shabbat Shalom.
