Thank you Holocaust of Learned helplessness as there is no vision of the light within and ahead. This was the ultimate experience of man's inhumanity to man. There is no logical reasoning, no logical explanation just pure evil intent towards innocent victims.

Let us pray 'never again'.

For those with the strength and tenacity to survive is a lesson for mankind to learn the results of evil inhumanity. Reply

I was very moved by the story of the Rabbi and his family. What else could be said, I simply can't understand why it was done. It's impossible to even understand the reasoning for so much suffering. Reply
