Horrific and Heroic

What happened to the Jews in Warsaw and other European countries was genocide of God's chosen people. Those who caused this slaughter will one day regret their actions. God will punish them (in eternity) multi-multi times over the terrible acts they committed. And they will remember every single atrocity they did. The Jews will be vindicated when that vengeance is meted out.
To see those young people step up with such uncommon courage and bravery brings tears to my eyes. It was heartbreaking to see others refuse them any assistance; however, they didn't cower or quit. They pressed on, and got their 3 lines in history books, and have inspired 1000's.
THESE are the real heroes..... not some gifted rich professional athlete or entertainer or........

I was sickened to hear that many Holocaust survivors were snubbed by Jews in the US and Israel, saying THEY were disgusted at the way they all went "like Lambs to the slaughter". If you have never owned weapons and are surrounded by men with machine guns, you, too, will do what they say. Many knew that resisting was guaranteed to get the entire family killed, too. So these Jews, like those in Sobibor and many other places fought back-SALUTE! (and shame on those smug people that weren't there).
