Holocaust: The heart turned inside out

History reminds us how resourceful, selfish, inventive, repetitive, generous, and fearful humans are. Mankind is amazing and disappointing, compassionate and cruel. We create breathtaking beauty while the natural beauty that supports us is poisoned. As Spock, in the original Star Trek would say, “Fascinating.”

A Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, put the contradiction that man is this way, “Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.”
