The Holocaust

Such a terrible time in the world's history.

Today while driving home, listening to the radio I heard an account of a man that survived the holocaust.

It was so sad to listen to this man's sad life. He lost all of his family members, most of which he saw get killed.

How someone can live through all of these events and then spend his life telling people about it is beyond me. He is a very brave and strong man.

Recently I read the book, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne.

Although written from a child's perspective, you pick up on little meanings through it that hint to more. I loved the movie! and the book wasn't a let down either!

I'm glad that this little boy was innocent enough to not let the actions of his father affect his opinion of someone else.

If only we could have all been like that. It is sad that Hitler is remembered more than the people that he killed. Millions and millions of people that needlessly died.
So sad.

I am so blessed to live in the country and time that I do.

:( There's a museum out in Los Angeles called the Museum of Tolerance, and there's an entire floor dedicated to raising awareness of the horror that was the Holocaust. You get a card of a child, and in the end, you slip the card through a machine that tells you whether or not your child survived. It's all very heartbreaking, but it's a beautiful and very informative museum.
