One thing that has been striking to me;
Which has been stirred up, by this conversation;
Is that, my father fought in WWII, mostly in the Czech Republic area.
Anyway, he was over there for about 3-4 years, in the war;
He carried a bazooka, or a rocket launcher, and won some medals.
He is Jewish.
I think at the end of the war, although he's never talked about it 
All of the soldiers, as well as the German people, were taken to view 
the concentration camps, by General Eisenhower.
I think my father never really got over what he saw there.
And I think he wondered, having fought tooth and nail;
To defeat the Nazi's;
Why oh why, had these people not fought back??
