Conhecimento Comum



{My thoughts} – I have always had an interest in reading things about WWII. It only makes sense that when I seen this available on netgalley I had to try and get a hold of it so I could read it. This book is filled with sort documentation of what had happened to some of the children that had been taken out of the German occupied lands and transported to Europe. It tells of their stories before they left and what came of them and their families after the war had ended.

Every time I read something about WWII it makes me want to cry. So many people had died because they were Jewish, because they were different, simply because Hitler said they had to die. I don’t think that it is right that so many people followed one man on his quest at attempting to eliminate an entire race from our world. I don’t understand how no one really fought against him, but instead followed him. I understand that he was in charge, I understand that people feared him, but why didn’t they fight against him. I am grateful to all the individuals that put their lives on the line to try and save as many Jewish people as they could. I am grateful to those that worked with the kindertransport to save close to 10, 000 children from death.

I am grateful that some people weren’t afraid to do what they thought was right and to stand up for the little people that could not stand up for themselves. So many children were saved, but so many more had died.

I enjoy reading about stuff like this because it helps me to learn more about history, a history that I hope will never be repeated. A history that was so terrible that it needs to be remembered so that the same mistakes are not made again in our future.
