One of the most gripping books I have read. It rates bookshelf placement with Anne Frank's Diary and other books written about the Holocaust. The reality of concentration camps and genocide of WWII cannot be denied. Yet, there are those that claim these atrocities did not happen.... Today, we have those who want to tear down statues and rename streets because they are reminders of the Confederate Union during our American Civil War... Yes, the Civil War time was a major pivotal and tragic event that divided, changed, and still seems to polarize our nation. Slavery was wrong. But let us live with that reality, and not try to erase the shame of the enslavement of human beings from our history!
Instead of destroying historical statues, monuments, street signs and other items that remind us of the trauma, bloodshed, hardship and horror of the Civil War... we need to be reminded of our past mistakes, Why not instead add Interpretive Signs at these historical markers to explain the history... the mistakes we made, and explain the history behind the times and the people.
