« Because the story is being edited, » she continued, « most people don’t know today that the government made their own neighbors hate them just because they were Jews, to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily bring together thousands of Jews. » How is that different from hating someone for their political views? »
« But now, after hearing so much, I’ve actually grown from the experience [realizing] that it’s not fair for the Jewish community to just toss this out.
