Diane Ravitch’s blog cites the White Rose Society, an anti-Nazi youth movement. The members paid with their heads in many cases and others were interrogated in a way Cheney would approve of. Looking at Trump’s call for mass deportations of immigrants – only the illegal ones, of course – and his call for registering Muslims, the item made me wonder whether I would have the courage of those young Germans. The vociferous approval of Trump’s remarks by so many, about a third of the GOP, I believe, made me wonder just how many Germans initially supported Hitler.
Giving thanks today for the freedoms we still enjoy.
