2. "Who has inflicted this upon us? Who has made us Jews different from all other people? Who has allowed us to suffer so terribly up till now?

If we bear all this suffering and if there are still Jews left, when it is over, then Jews, instead of being doomed, will be held up as an example. Who knows, it might even be our religion from which the world and all peoples learn good, and for that reason and that reason alone do we have to suffer now. We can never become just Netherlanders, or just English, or representatives of any country for that matter; we will always remain Jews, but we want to, too."

It was a willingness of the heart."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

The nation was in full support to help our boys win the war and come home quickly.Grandpa wanted to do his part too."
Author: Kara Martinelli

Author: Kurt Vonnegut
