lest we forget (part two)
My spouse and my ten year old son are reading Maus together right now. So, so hard.
I am glad S. wants to learn this but so sad he has to learn how cruel people can be.
S.: "So they were just allowed to shoot Jews for fun?"
T.: "Jews were not considered human."
S.: "They were treated like vermin."
S. and T. together: "Like mice."
T.: "Not all the Germans felt this way but when your government and all the news and your neighbours are all telling you one thing...People get swept up."
