witness odd things. First there were unfair
laws instituted regarding Jews. Then
Jewish places of business and worship were vandalized. Before long, concentration camps and ghettos

Jews began to disappear.
How might you
have acted to protect your neighbor who not long ago you ate, worked and played
with? Interesting to think about.
