Survivor of Buchenwald

I got through this book quickly, it was an actual page-turner. It should be required reading, especially these days as we all take everything for granted. Unbelievable that people can treat other people so horribly, it really sheds light on how ignorant I am, and we all are, as to how evil people can actually be. I read a book a few years ago called Hitler’s Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust by Daniel Jonah Goldhagen, which goes a long way to explain how this can occur; one of the points mentioned was that it isn’t simply a German trait to go down this road. It can happen anywhere. This is where our school systems have failed horribly as this topic has been relegated to a hobby instead of being common knowledge.
