Ignorance is Not Bliss. . . It’s Just Ignorance. (first blogged August 2013).
I feel wicked sleeping in a warm bed, while my dearest friends have been knocked down or have fallen into a gutter somewhere out in the cold night. I get frightened when I think of close friends who have now been delivered into the hands of the cruellest brutes that walk the earth. And all because they are Jews!” ― Anne Frank, the Diary of a Young Girl
Recently whilst waiting for a friend of mine I was privy to a conversation between two people who were talking about the events of the 2nd world war. As neither were anywhere near the age that one would have to be, to have actually physically been there, I realised they were talking either from their own perceptions/understanding of what they had been taught, from their own assumptions, hear say, or perhaps from what they had read (though I find this hard to believe, because one would seriously have to alter, misinterpret, misunderstand anything that’s ever been written or carved onto the pages of history), as opposed to having first-hand insight/knowledge. Without wanting to go into each and every aspect of the conversation, with its entire mind bending content, the basic gist of the conversation was this . . . the Holocaust didn’t happen!!
Words failed me then and to be totally honest they still fail me now…
