The G-d Damned Holocaust

Every year I make sure to spend a couple of weeks depressed over the holocaust. I put myself through this at least annually in memory of my would be aunts uncles and cousins that persished. When you consider what great personalities and characters could have decended from 6,000,000 jewish people it kind of makes you think (would there still be any money left for me?).
My late grandfather Felix from my fathers side lost all 11 of his siblings. I make sure to read at least one book every year written by a survivor. Its a harsh reminder that although times have changed, they have not changed much. It really was not all that long ago. Many people are still driven by hate and are easily led and influenced e.g. Palestinians democratic election of a terrrorist organization.
