Seattle Times letters to the editor

Remembering the Holocaust

Man’s inhumanity

In 1945, I was 10 years old, attending a Saturday matinee in Scarsdale, N.Y., with my mother and aunt.  The news came on, showing pictures of the concentration camps and the many dead Jews.  [“Haunting memories kept alive in the music,” page one, March 21.}

My mother covered my eyes.  My aunt Audrey took her hand away from my face and said, “Let Gail see man’s inhumanity to man.”

The holocaust cannot be denied!

Gail E. Herzog, Everett
