Can It Happen Again?: Chronicles of the Holocaust

Overview

I am a survivor of a concentration camp. My eyes saw what no man should witness. (CHAIM GINOTT)

"Could the Holocaust happen again? Over the years I have often put the question to my young students. And they, consistently, have answered yes, while I said no.

Overview

I am a survivor of a concentration camp. My eyes saw what no man should witness. (CHAIM GINOTT)

"Could the Holocaust happen again? Over the years I have often put the question to my young students. And they, consistently, have answered yes, while I said no. I saw it as a unique event that would remain unique. I believed that if mankind had learned anything from it, it was that hate and murder reach beyond the direct participants; he who begins by killing another, in the end will kill his own. I was wrong. What happened once, could happen again. Perhaps I am exaggerating. Perhaps I am over-sensitive. But then I belong to a traumatized generation. We have learned to take threats more seriously than promises." (ELIE WIESEL)

"It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I kept them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death." (ANNE FRANK)
