Let us not for­get his­tory

RE: Trump’s pres­i­dency

Years ago I had a talk with my Dutch/Ger­man mother whose fam­ily was forced into a move to Hol­land as her dad had no job and would have been sent to a con­cen­tra­tion camp if they stayed. I asked her how could you (the Ger­man peo­ple) let Hitler come to power? She said we were hun­gry and had no work — he gave the peo­ple both. Her broth­ers, my un­cles fought with the un­der­ground.

Those who for­get his­tory are des­tined to re­peat it. Let’s be vig­i­lant. The ac­tions against the mosques have an eerie sim­i­lar­ity to Kristall­nacht. Let’s keep that class of “thugs” at bay. Karen Fil­ice, Stoney Creek
