    It is unreal the kind of human depravity that was manifest in the prison camps of WWII. It is hard to imagine it. I was at a prison camp in Lithuania (Fort IX). My dad has been to Dachau and said that even after 50 years it was eerily unreal and sobering.

    One of my hopes is one day to take a WWII tour Europe, particularly the prison camps and Normandy.

    There was a special on PBS that I saw a little bit of last night. I hope they rerun it. I would like to see the whole thing. There are some pretty good holocaust sites on the internet.

    I hope this world never forgets what happens when you let madmen run loose.

    Sadly, though, Pastor Larry, the world has already forgotten - especially the youth. They draw the swatztikas as grafitti. Prince Harry wore one on an arm band to a party - big news there. It's sad. The world has already forgotten. Watching the video of Schindler's List should be a mandatory requirement in public schools.

    Not only is it forgotten, it's sometimes denied by revisionists.

    General Eisenhower had his division troops file past dead corpes at these death camps and made the comment

    "They may not know what they are fighting for but now they can know what they are fighting against!"

    My sympathy as I continue to be an avid WW2 hobbyist! May each of us living keep sober minded so as not to fall victim to hellish propaganda that lured the German people to be death mongers!
