My grandmother was alive during the 1940's. She said it caused hardship on every man,woman,and child. They had to use food stamps and ration tickets. She said she had friends that were Jewish. ''They had it the worst. My classroom swiftly emptied. I didn't understand it at the time, but they went to die. Hitler didn't have any right to do what he did. He didn't even have to suffer like they did. I think back and, I imagine what it was like for them, what they had to go through and I just praise God that isn't happening today.'' At the end of this conversation I was at tears because I didn't relize it was that brutal. Hopefully no one will ever have to go through this again. Another thing I want to add is to whoever reads this please add a memory because we are running out of time.
