“We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” ~ Elie Wiesel

What would you do? Why? The Holocaust showed the world that it is a very good idea to rethink what makes humans civilized. Is it our willingness to help our fellow human beings? Then why did we betray the Jews in World War II? How did the Nazis manipulate us? Why did we refuse to stand up to evil? This book will help you to search for the answer to the question that only you can answer for yourself…

The Holocaust, the Shoah, or any other name you use to speak of this dark time in world history, is gradually losing some of its urgency. Why do I say that? It’s been 70 years since World War II ended. Seven decades is long enough to remember, to forgive, and to forget.

Forget? It all depends on your perspective. If you are German, you want to atone for the past. Apologize and move on. Nobody should have to pay for the sins of their grandparents, should they? If you are Jewish, you can never forget. Centuries upon centuries of abuse and mistreatment simply can not be forgotten, ever. One can forgive, yes. But forget, no…

“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.” ~ Albert Einstein

This book mixes historical fact and fiction. The plot is total fiction, from my imagination. The names, places, and characters are inspired by history. Any resemblance to any real person, living or dead, is only a historical coincidence. Also, history serves only as a guide to the plot development. I use fiction to promote reflection on a historical topic, the Holocaust. Why?

For me, an African American, I recognize the necessity to look at the Holocaust, and try to understand why it happened. How did all of this madness happen? More importantly, what is my role in preventing something like this from ever happening again?

Never again. That’s an idea everybody can get behind. Never again.

I’m pro-humanity. I’m for humans doing good things for humans. With this book, I mix historical events and characters with fictional events and characters to help humans consider the tremendous challenge of trying to answer an ethical question: What would you do if you faced a life or death situation? Would you save your life, or sacrifice your life?
