Excerpts from a Diary

Post by Jeffk 1970 » Thu Oct 25, 2018 7:38 pm

This popped up in my Facebook feed today. The Smithsonian released excerpts from a diary. The last entry is right before the girl is deported:

Question for Groening by a reporter:
“Mr. Groening, what do you say to those who still deny the Holocaust?”

Groening:
“Nothing. They are hopelessly lost.”


Harvard Crimson (on why it refused to run an add by Bradley Smith):
“(It is) vicious propaganda based on utter BS that has been discredited time and time again.”

thanks, interesting stuff; I also came across this: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/24/obit ... ooked.html

(I ordered the Renia Spiegel diary you linked to, not the 1983 Rose Zar book though.)
. . . all right we are two nations . . .

I think this might be worth a read. I may get it at some point.
