I haven’t been to the Holocaust Museum or Auchwitz but I will think of this young girl the next time I listen to a racist, anti-Semitic rant.

My 9 year old, Smelly, just did a book report on Anne Frank. She just could not understand how people could be treated they way Jews were during the Holocaust.

Mrs. Wart's Great Grandfather apparently died in one of the Concentration camps during the War. Her Mom was supposed to get us some more info on him.

Schindler's List is an incredible movie, and beautifully shot. But you do have to wonder if the B&W aspect does somewhat dehumanize it. Though I'm not sure I could handle it in color.

Very affecting.

I remember going to the Tuol Sleng genocide museum in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. That place shook me. It used to be a high school before the Khmer Rouge turned it into a torture center and intake center for prisoners on their way to the killing fields. The classrooms got turned into torture rooms. There were metal cots in there where prisoners were chained. Ammo boxes for toilets. The floors where stained with blood. A gallows stood in the schoolyard.

In one part they had the prisoner intake photos blown up. One was a little girl, looked to be maybe 10 years old, just staring right back at you. It was devastating.

i didn't see it until i was an undergrad in a film course i was taking. man, what a movie. i can be cynical towards movies using real life situations/events and putting a hollywood bow on it etc but i'm glad i watched it though i'm not sure i could watch it again. it's obviously an emotional and heavy movie but i just lost it at the end when oskar is lamenting that he could have done more, saved more, etc. even just thinking of the scene/movie can be rough to me.

I agree. However iirc there was colored part. I think it was a flower on a girl's jacket as she was running. That part was especially affecting. Edit- it was a red coat.

This happened yesterday. I think this is the statue they were just chipping at last year.

Good example of why statues aren’t a great way to preserve history

I think an appropriate monument would be the toppled statue and those words from the letter about horse whipping a Negro wench.
Not sarcasm.
