    An article from the past – history in the making before WWII. Very interesting. I knew Hitler was doing many bad things before WWII started.

    I just finished reading “Lilac Girls.” It was difficult to read (especially since I read before bedtime), but I made myself read it. It was an engrossing tale, even more so, as it was based on real people and events. These stories illustrate why it is so very important we study history. Thanks for your post.

    Scary to read even now. Hitler quietly slipped in.

    It reminded me again of how apartheid in South Africa slipped in–one law change at a time. There are certain similar instances here as well.

    It’s frightening how things can change little by little when we are not paying attention.
