The Holocaust happened while the world slept

Today, in this time and this place, even in the face of so many years having now passed by, the unimaginable horror surrounding the systematic extermination of six million human beings by the Nazi Germany’s Third Reich is still all but impossible to comprehend. We simply can’t wrap our collective mind around such savagery, and yet, comprehend it we must. For were the world to ever forget the atrocities that were perpetrated against the Jewish people all those years ago would be to deny the memory of a people who were tortured and murdered for no other reason other than the fact that they happened to be Jewish. To this day, how the world could allow something as horrific and insane as the Holocaust to take place in what was supposed to have been a “civilized” society continues to amaze, repulse and shock us.
