We Cannot Forget

Friday, February 15, 2008

In February/March 1945, a 15 year old girl and her 19 year sister died at a notorious place of hell on earth, Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp. From eye-witness accounts, the older sister died a day or two before the younger sister, and both entered history.

If not for a simple little diary, both sisters and their Mother would have become just mere numbers of the estimated six million Jews murdered during the 'Final Solution.' A diary, a mere diary written by a young girl, saved them from being a footnote in history, and showed the world the banality of evil that becomes the common man.

A teenage girl, through her private writings in a diary, has shown the world who, in the end, triumphs. Good does indeed trump evil.

We must never forget the evil that befell us because of Nazism, nor must we ignore the onslaught of evil that is Islamism, for both view people that do not accept their ideology as sub-human, and not worthy as living.

History does indeed repeat itself, and we are witnessing it now.

What are you prepared to do?

I remember when the Diary of Anne Frank was required reading in school. One of my brothers brought it home and I picked it up and read every word. The constant fear they lived with, the tearing apart and eventual tragic deaths of most of the family members broke my heart and angered me to the core. It still does.
That these undeniable atrocities occurred is proof that evil does exist in this world.
