Homage to Great Writers


Bernard Sheer

Blog Post:

On February 9, 2012 we were blessed to be able to hear Bernard Sheer, one of the last living "holocaust" survivors share his experience with us.  These are some quotes I took from his speech.  Read them all and choose one that makes an impression on you.  Write about what it means to you on your blog as a new post.  Copy & Paste the quote so we know which one you are writing about.

  • "The children of the guilty are NOT guilty."
  • "Memory is the glue that connects the past to the future."
  • "The worst torment is to not be able to speak."
  • "Fanatacism leads to mass cruelty and death."
  • "Why is there so much hatred in the world? Indifference to suffering?"
  • "My memory is a shield to prevent mass killing again.  That is why I share my story."
  • "You need to have hope NOT hopelessness."
  • "The greatest crime is to have indifference to pain and suffering in the world."
