    Sobering testimonials; what a horrible thing we must never forget Auschwitz

    • Sadly, too many under 40 Americans aren’t familiar with the Holocaust according to a recent study in the 18 – 30ish range.

      • I saw an article where someone blamed America’s public schools, but I see plenty of public schools in other industrial countries not teaching the subject either.

        Then, you have the other extreme where a country makes it a crime to blame its citizens for being involved in the Holocaust. Those citizens had no problem turning in Jews to the Nazis. They did so willingly.

        I wonder too if its also my generation’s general amnesia of history and not just schooling

      • Probably a combination of both. Thankfully I had an 8th Grade Social Studies teacher who made learning history fun. My 11th Grade American History went the other way. She made history boring, but she couldn’t overcome Mr. Daniels from 8th Grade.

        Had she been the first history teacher I had, I would probably hate it. Thankfully the Lord gave me Mr. Daniels first.

        In 9th Grade for Civics, I had to do book reports. One was a large oversized book about the American West after the Civil War. Don’t remember the author, but they made it as dry and boring as possible. I don’t normally speed read through a book. In that instance, I did.

      • Every 9 weeks, Mr. Daniels split the class into 4 teams with 2 leaders each. By the end of the year, you had been on a team with everyone in the class. For the last 9 weeks, he chose me as one of the leaders. I was pleasantly surprised as I was not popular, but my team got behind me and we won bragging rights as our team won. Kind of meaningless since the school year was over.

        I appreciated my team stepping up. It was a team effort. It also made me realize I had leadership skills.
