Today was an eventful day. It was the last day with Stephanie the trainer from Yad Vasehm. She was an amazing resource to have and had a great way to teach us with stories, film, and information. We discussed the rescue efforts of other countries and why it took as long as it did to occur. It was interesting to hear that the overall German intent to kill all the Jews was the driving force for everything and Germans did not feel that anything would stop them. Additionally, July 1939 in US 32% believe Jews have excessive power in business; 41% believe they need to be deported; 1941 44% thought the Jews were a threat and had too much power. WOW! Great information today and I am sure more for the next two days.
