Damn Hitler and his collaborators


I had a weird feeling today. I know it’ll sound silly, but…I don’t know, I just felt it
 
I study french in a school, and this semester we’re studying, among other things, World War II. Nothing new, nothing I haven’t studied already in many other courses at my normal school. The thing is, our teacher Danielle is jewish and she told us she’d bring a few documents to show us…
 
And so today she brought them: a square yellow piece of cloth with the star of David saying "JUIF" in the middle, that all jews had to wear in France to be identified. A paper saying the number of the wagon where her father was transported to Drancy, then to Pologne…Auschwitz, more especifically. Another paper (sent to her family in 1946) saying that his last "address" was the Auschwitz camp, and that *suddenly* he wasn’t seen again, and was declared missing. MISSING!!!! The man was only 27 years old…can you imagine how horrible it must be to have someone you love declared missing?? Not being able to bury him/her?? Not being able to know if the guy escaped by any lucky chance he had? Or maybe got crazy and was delivered from the nazis, but never returned home?
 
Like I said, this may sound silly of me but I had a horrible feeling holding those things in my hand. We always hear about what happened there, we’ve seen countless movies and documentaries and seen the nazi swastica written on walls and german-related things in museums but…I don’t know if it’s because I live in Brazil, or if it’s because I’ve never lived in an openly declared war (there’s civil war in Brazil but it’s not officially declared), or if it’s because of my age and that seemed far away because I had never met anyone who had someone they knew as a victim of the nazi regime…but today it was different, I really felt the weight of the whole thing as I was holding those things. That’s terrible, cause we shouldn’t have to touch and have palpable proof to really understand and mourn what happened. And I really feared it might happen again – maybe in a different place with different people, but as horrible as that was. It might be happening right now without us knowing…
 
PS – HAH! Now MSN Spaces is censored???? What a joke!!!! I had originaly put "Nazi" as the title of my email, and when I pressed the "publish this entry" button it told me that my message had inappropriate language and that I should remove the dirty words from it!!! It took me some time to realize it was the title. Great, so now we’re not allowed to discuss this horrible episode of human history…
