  1. "Banality of evil” says:

    A picture from an Einsatzgruppen soldier’s personal album, labelled on the back as “Last Jew of Vinnitsa”. It shows a member of Einsatzgruppe D just about to shoot a Jewish man kneeling before a filled mass grave in Vinnitsa, Ukraine, in 1941. All 28,000 Jews from Vinnitsa and its surrounding areas were massacred at the time.

    Hannah Arendt : “The neutral expressions on the shooter and his uniformed audience pretty well encapsulate that concept: they could be watching a barber cut hair, instead of the heartless extermination of innocents. Humans can adapt to endure almost anything, but in doing so, they sometimes perpetuate incredible evil. The death of human empathy is one of the earliest and most telling signs of a culture about to fall into barbarism”.

    “BERGA: Hitler’s GI Death Camp” (National Geographic 2011) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYzJS5qW9GE National Emmy Award nominee for Best Historical Long Form Documentary, Narrated by Liev Schreiber. Full Documentary. “When Americans think of GI’s & the Holocaust, they envision young soldiers liberating death camps. They don’t think of American GI’s themselves as being victims in the Nazi’s Final Solution. But in a place called Berga, American POW’s became just that, working and dying as slave laborers in one of Hitler’s most secretive concentration camps.”
