All of you have heard or know something about the Holocaust but have you ever heard about it from anyone who was there? If you have not I encourage you to do so. Last night I went to my local library to hear a Holocaust survivor and the son of an SS officer speak. Trust me the best way to learn about the Holocaust was from those who were there. For the record the SS officer who was the father of one of the speakers did not know what was happening until he visited Dachua, from then on he opposed the Third Reich.

Yes. A victim of the Holocaust did a lecture at my university a few years back.

It was much different than I expected, the survivor's family actually tried to escape persecution by escaping into Warsaw because it would never be expected.
