    I have been to Auschwitz and it gave me nightmares for days looking at to what an extremely pitiful level humanity can drop in their actions towards their own fellow human beings. Salute to these brave people who stood against one of the biggest evils in this world and over that they still give us hope that humanity still has a chance because of people like them.

    I’ve always wondered why the jews didn’t help themselves. The vision of jews running to line up against walls to be shot is as shocking for their compliance and lack of trying to escape as it is for the actual murders.
