FW: Visits to concentration camps #general
A great many people knew of the Holocaust long before "Schindler's List" came out in 1993. Perhaps not everyone was as involved as my liberal family and neighbors; however, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt advocated for those Jews fleeing the intolerable actions, and donated money, as early as 1939. It was not a secret. And Great Britain's Quakers helped those Jews starting in 1939; they later received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1947 for that. Not being aware reminds me of a time last year when a college-educated, successful woman said. "Gee. I never knew African Americans were treated badly."
