Watching the news recently, I noticed flags and signs being waved around claiming that the Holocaust did not exist — that it never occurred as part of World War II.
It is sad that the sign wavers did not get to go to Germany and other parts of Europe to take part in the Blitzkrieg, the Battle of the Bulge, or the fight for Stalingrad. Nothing like a 700-pound bomb to awaken soldiers to a sense of war.
My father was 18 years old and stationed in England when the war started. My mother and my grandparents survived constant attacks from German fighter pilots. To those who deny the Holocaust today, I do not believe you could withstand real war and the horror that accompanied it.
