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 much; 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?? > To subscribe, send a message to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Or go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FairfieldLife/ and click 'Join This Group!'
