Quotes
narrator: [newsreel] On August 2, 1934, officers and men swear the oath of allegiance not to Germany, but to Hitler personally. 1 of 1 found this interesting Interesting?

I think that God gave us a mind and a heart and free will and it is up to man what he's going to do with his life. And I blame man, not God.

Dr. Randolph Braham: The Holocaust has to be taught as a chapter in the long history of man's inhumanity to man. One cannot ignore the discrimination inflicted on many people because of race color or creed. One cannot ignore slavery. One cannot ignore the burning of witches. One cannot ignore the killing Christians during the Roman period. The Holocaust perhaps is the culmination of the kind of horror that can occur when man loses his integrity, his belief in the sanctity of human life.

Bill Basch: There is one thing that has troubled me and has troubled the world, that the Germans dedicated man-power and trains and trucks and energy toward the destruction of the Jews to the last day. Had they stopped 6 months before the end of the war and dedicated that energy towards strengthening themselves, they may have carried on the war in London, but it was more important to them to kill the Jew than in winning the war.
