"It takes solidarity and generosity of spirit to build a society in which anyone can feel safe. Empathy can be hard to find, especially for people who look or sound different, or believe different things to us. But when we allow ourselves to be pitted against each other, and to be ruled by the meaner emotions, we dig our own graves alongside those of the people we abandon. ??

Bookwomble ...It's only when we understand our essential commonality that we can protect ourselves: not as individual humans, but as members of an indivisible whole." - William Sieghart #holocaustremembranceday 3y
TrishB So true. 3y
Weaponxgirl I was read this as a child and it has always stayed with me. 3y
Bookwomble @Weaponxgirl It's powerful, coming as it did from Niemöller's initial position of support for the Nazis, transformed into opposition as he saw the results of their ideology. I thought I'd got an image including the full list of oppressed that Niemöller wrote of, but see the one I chose misses off socialists. Important not to forget that the Nazis also 'exterminated' LGBT+ people, disabled people, Roma people and many others 🕯 3y
Weaponxgirl @Bookwomble it‘s true, I have a book on how disabled children were treated by the nazis. I haven‘t had the strength to read it yet. I think it‘s so important when we see hate being fanned for a certain group to stop and ask what the fanners motivations actually are. 3y

4.5/5⭐ Everything a book about the Holocaust should be: brutal and important. Appropriately, I finished this book about the necessity of remembering today on #YomHaShoah, #HolocaustRemembranceDay.

These two books, (along with a few others) taught me about the Holocaust and I am forever changed.

Shaneyney I‘ve read other things by Leon Uris but I haven‘t heard of that one, now I need to go get it. He‘s such an incredible author 4y
Crazeedi @Shaneyney it's an old book, but riveting. I loved Exodus, Trinity too, as well as others of his. But this one was excellent (edited) 4y
