1. The White Rose- A lesson in Dissent.

http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/the-white-rose-a-lesson-in-dissent

I was 14 years old when I fully realized what the Holocaust was about. It was when Eichmann was caught, and I then read the book, Auschwitz, which just traumatized me. Here is an interesting read about the Holocaust and what is happening today.

“How Do You Kill 11 Million People” by Andy Andrews.

“Through the lens of the Holocaust, Andy examines how Hitler was able to get eleven million people to march to their deaths with so little resistance. In short, he lied to them. And, sadly, they believed it. If the truth is what sets us free, we need to ask what it means to live in a society where truth is absent, where we are routinely lied to by politicians of both parties, Wall Street, and the media. What is at stake? Can we survive in such a culture of deception? Our only hope, Andy argues, is an informed citizenry that demands truth at every level—first from themselves and second from their leaders. We must be able to separate fact from fiction, truth from lies, and hold those who lie accountable.

This is a short book. You can literally read it in less than an hour. But don’t be fooled by its size. It’s a little book that could be the start of something very big. It’s a book you will want to read for yourself and then give to others.”

“People are being rounded-up all over the country. The numbers are small and scattered now, but the mechanism is being established. It is vans and buses now, when the cattle cars start screaming by, how loudly will you be singing?”

2. The White Rose translated Leaflets


http://www.holocaustresearchproject.org/revolt/wrleaflets.html

“Nothing is so unworthy of a civilized nation as allowing itself to be governed without opposition by an irresponsible clique that has yielded to base instinct. It is certain that today every honest German (American) is ashamed of his government. Who among us has any conception of the dimensions of shame that will befall us and our children when one day the veil has fallen from our eyes and the most horrible of crimes - crimes that infinitely outdistance every human measure - reach the light of day?”
“We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience. The White Rose will not leave you in peace!”


“The Holocaust resulted neither from a confluence of circumstances beyond human control nor from history’s inexorable march. It happened because ordinary people failed to stop it.”
