“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” ~ Elie Wiesel
The year I read Night I gave it away as Christmas gift to a few friends. I know it might seem odd that I would give the gift of a book written by a holocaust survivor, chronicling the injustices he faced. It's not really a happy, clappy Christmas gift. But I really thought people needed to hear the message.
The Holocaust wasn't that long ago.
And it really happened.
And people let it happen.
And they did nothing.
From 1933 to 1945 it happened and went on and on, and people just...let it.
