  2. Before I watched this video I felt that I was comfortable with holocaust knowledge. This video taught me how much more I can learn about the Shoah and really introduced me to many key points I was not aware of before. Your the man Dr!

  3. Wow, I never thought there could be issues with just the name of the “holocaust.” I appreciate learning about this and it was very interesting! Definitely something to think about. Thanks.

  4. It is so surreal to see a baby picture of Hitler, to think he could seem so innocent. He built camps at the beginning of his regime for political prisoners, but wasn’t his intention to ultimately use it for the Jews? He was writing intensely Anti-Semitic ideas as early as his days in prison, when he authored Mein Kampf, no? It is mind boggling that a few people were lucky enough to survive such atrocities; the conditions certainly make it miraculous that anyone did.

  5. There is so much to say, yet no words can ever suffice. It just boggles my mind how the world’s leaders could have made a deal with such a tyrant. Yes, hindsight vision is always 20/20, but perhaps the most frightening thing is the possibility of history repeating itself. It seems that the world’s leaders tend to follow the road of appeasement and diplomacy, instead of facing evil as it is and recognizing it for what it is. If the Holocaust could at the very least teach the world and it’s leaders something, it should be “NEVER AGAIN”!
