These men and this generation...truly saved the world!

These are some great links guys. Thanks for posting them. This era reminds me of my dad who was a marine stationed up on a hill a few miles from Pearl Harbor when it was attacked and continued to serve in the Pacific. God bless that generation.

I teach in a university. A few years ago I went to Poland for a project accompanied by 2 students assistants. One a grad student, very mature, the other a senior undergraduate, 21 yrs old. I went to Auschwitz when I was there. I can't say anything about that. Auschwitz is beyond speaking.

This was her reply:
Excellent links, thanks to everyone who provided.
