What a moving and true story this lady has to share with those who have ears to hears and eyes to see. This will never happen again!. Praise the Lord!
May we all learn from Mrs. Handler how to survive and become a peaceful and wonderful human.
Peace and Clarity
"We are losing respect for human life.”
Totally agree. Today's Movies, Music, TV and Video Games glorify just killing, especially to the 6-16 years of age group. Nip that in the bud and the street killings should go down.
In memory of the innocent victims of the Holocaust, the "Strong message" by Helen Handler is so true about survivors of what (German Chancellor Adolf) Hitler called the "final solution" and it is good that she shares it with others.
Since the defeat of Germany's Third Reich much of the world's population may have forgotten about the genocide of six million Jews.
But as difficult as it is to look back at this time in history, people who recognized the importance of documenting the atrocities have sought to ensure that the Nazi regime will never be forgotten and many believe the modern State of Israel was birthed from the ashes of the Holocaust's crematoriums.
I can not fathom why my old brethren did that.
My heart goes out to this woman. We must never forget this episode in history as it can manifest itself again when people let their government become too powerful and start governing contrary to the will of the people.
To Accuracy - that is the trouble with people today - like you - you think that ONLY JEWS have been killed in mass. Well Buddy, guess again, the Ukrainians were exterminated, the russians were exterminated, Poles were exterminated etc. and not one of them may have been JEWISH. I am tired of hearing about the poor JEWS when the truth is, there were more INNOCENT PEOPLE eliminated than the JEWS. The JEWS JUST MAKE MORE NOISE AS USUAL. Now, MY MOTHER who is now 84 was in THAT WAR and taken from HER FAMILY by the French when she was just 12 years old to work in the munitions factory. SHE IS NOT JEWISH. She worked putting powder into the bullets until her hand became infected and then they took her hospital where she spent 6 months healing. When she was healed up she was sent to be a housekeeper, nanny, babysitter to a GERMAN FAMILY whose name I will not mention. They told her they would pay her so that she would have money when the war was over. Guess who never got a penny from them? Guess what she did get ? A train ride to Birkeneau and then to Auschwitz. A train ride FULL of innocent people all hungry and thirsty and many dying along the way. NO, my mother rarely mentioned this part of her life while we were growing up, not because of HATE but because she was just not able to talk about it until now. It would be nice IF FOR A CHANGE - THE JEWS were to INCLUDE ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE WAR when they speak of it and not just THEM. There is a word for those people who love to talk about themselves and IF the shoe fits then you should wear it. There were more than just the JEWS affected by the war, GET USED TO IT. And, the next war will not be the same since it will be nuclear so chances are what these people went through will never ever happen again. Same as the depression and crash of the 30's. Why? Because there was no such thing as CREDIT CARDS. People paid in CASH ONLY so how will it be the same? It will probably be even worse.
