It is inconceivable that there have been and there are "human beings" who can commit these atrocious acts on other human beings. But the unfortunate fact remains that they have done it in the past, they are doing it in the present and it will be done in the future. The only thing that can be done is to keep each generation constantly aware that they are not exempt from these "human mistakes" striking against humanity again.
Each generation's awareness will serve to protect and hopefully put a stop to monsters like the Nazis from rising to power.
Many skeptics and those in denial might say that the atrocities of World War II will not happen in the United States. Well, thirty years ago most Americans would not believed that the US Government would tap every phone call that each US citizen makes every single day. They never dreamed that surfing the web and that each email and text written would be recorded by the US Government.
Unfortunately this is the reality we are living right now in the name of security. When you give up freedom for security you don't get either one.
What is happening right now is just the beginning. It is by design. The dose is given little by little. When you raise the water temperature in a pot with a live frog, the creature doesn't know what's happening until it's too late.
Today's generation will never know what freedom really is because it has diminished just a little bit at a time . . . in the name of security. This is what happened with the Nazis.
It is important NOT to live in denial, NOT to dismiss reality and NOT to stay in a catatonic apathetic comfort zone. Adolf Hitler did NOT take power by force. Adolf Hitler was ELECTED by the German people. Get the drift? Just take some time to think about this. Food for thought.
Adolph Hitler was a decorated World War I veteran who went to prison after a coup d'état attempt. Barely ten years after his prison sentence ended he was elected to the office of Chancellor in 1933 by the German people and within one year of the election he became a dictator!
The movie SWASTIKA is dedicated to all those men, women and children who fought the deranged and twisted monstrosity called Socialist Nazism. Just in Poland alone 5.3 million Poles were murdered during the Nazi occupation, half of these people were Jews.
