Stand Up Against Genocide

Today, I will post the following video about the genocide that happened in Nazi Germany:

What do you think of the video? If it interested you, then also check out a post I wrote about genocide: Lo taamod al dam reakha

Basically, I explained that fear causes people to stop caring about the lives of “the enemy,” and that causes the people to support the wars and genocides committed by their government. What do you think?
