I have many Jewish friends and it pains me that a number of them relayed the horrors of Auschwitz to me in my younger days. Their eyes showed such pain and grief. For too long, many people denied that the wholesale slaughter of innocents even occurred. How dare they! And even today there are those who either don't care or feel guilt for what their forebears did and don't want to accept the truth for what it is. Wake up, people! This could happen to any race or creed. This is a painful lesson for humanity to have to accept, but it happened. We can't take it back.
Real life horror is the worst kind. This horrid display of savagery committed all these years ago should never be forgotten. Reach out to your fellow woman/man and embrace them for who they are. We are all equal on this spinning rock. There is no superior race or nation. Love everyone!
I want to praise Merna Kirschenbaum Shapiro, a schoolmate of mine from Memorial High School in West New York, New Jersey. She was the happiest kid in the school, always laughing, always having a good time. But, she became involved with the cause . . . the cause that we never forget what happened. I am proud of her hard work over the years! I bow to you, my friend.
The deaths at these camps represent real life horror at their absolute worst. Remember. Always.
