Liberation

On the morning of May 6, 1945, Lou Dunst was literally at death’s door. A 19-year-old Ukrainian Jew in a Nazi concentration camp in Austria, he had crawled onto a pile of corpses outside the crematorium to perish. But that afternoon, Staff Sgt. Bob Persinger drove his tank "Lucky Lady" through the camp’s gates, liberating Dunst and the rest of Ebensee’s 18,000 prisoners. Dunst and Persinger met for the first time yesterday. Read the story and know why you are not a pacifist.

Nice. I needed that.

Yes. A wonderful article.

They need not fear that their stories will be lost. Here are a few of the books I have read about the heroism of holocaust victims:

"In My Hands" Irene Gut Opdyke,1999, Anchor Books;

"The Avengers" Rich Cohen, 2000, Vintage Books;

"Escape From Sobibor" Richard Rashke, 1982, University of Illinois Press;

"The Seamstress" Sara Tuvel Bernstein, 1997, Berkley Books; and

"Mosaic" Diane Armstrong, 1998, St Martin’s Griffin.

I recommend them all.
