She was rather religious Catholic I believe.. The book I had around here, was her and some guy John something.. I don't remember his last name. I do remember her being very religious. Gosh didn't she die in like the early 4o's. She had an amazing life.. went through a lot. Seemed like when me son was in Highscool was when I was reading about her in the concentration camps in Auschwitz.. So sad how many people died there like her.. I hope that's spelled right!..  Anyways My son had to do some stuff on the hollocost etc.

Yeah.. I am sure it is. Those stories about those consentration camps are so sad and these people were so brave and so frightened.

So many people lost their lives.. look at the impact created by it.. sad to think that compassion was so long in getting those people help..

oh, wow!  I know what you mean...it is sickening....I heard it at work and waiting to hear it one more time until I take it to HR and then the bosses of the two baffoons....I don't want them working with our residents as they have many different backgrounds/cultures...They are so hateful and I want them fired!!!

It is pretty disheartening to see this still being taught to young children!

Yes it is.. It hurts to imagine what happens to a person to make them feel like that..and keep that inside themselves for so long that they just keep laying it off on others!
