Auschwitz
/

The book of Exodus, chapter one, has these ominous words: “‘Look, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we; come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and it happen, in the event of war, that they also join our enemies and fight against us, and so go up out of the land.’ Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with their burdens.”

I just returned from Auschwitz, Poland—an unimaginably evil place where over one million people were murdered. Though the good in that society were more and mightier than the hellish minority leading this assault, for some strange reason, most stayed silent while the misguided tried to form a new society. We must learn from history and never stay passively silent when evil tries to take wrong and call it right.

My friend, it’s time for you and me to pray.

    I totally agree Dear Pastor Conlon.We cannot stand idly by and do nothing when evil such as this prevails.
    I was the only person in my Freshman high school class that earned an A on the end of the year book report on The Diary Of Anne Frank.I have since studied a great deal about the many camps and the dear ones who endured such atrocious tortures.I know one very old American soldier who was there when the army arrived...too late.Angelo told me some poor captive men had dug under the buildings trying to escape and were shot when
    they tried to crawl out just hours before the army arrived to rescue them.The Hiding Place is one of my favotite movies.Corrie Ten Boom is a hero of mine.I love the hearts of caring you and Teresa Conlon carry within.God Bless your work for Him.
