Am I my brother’s keeper? How could a people allow Adolph Hitler to commit genocide? Holocaust was real; its horrors, documented. The world must learn from the past and never forget. Jordana Lebowicz’s book about the 2015 trial of Oskar Groening, the “Bookkeeper of Auschwitz” comes 70 years after Hitler’s reign and WWII. Yet the stories of the Holocaust and its survivors need telling. History must not repeat itself.
In TO LOOK A NAZI IN THE EYE we see a man through Jordan’s teenage eyes who looks completely ordinary, yet who was a part of the horror of the Nazi death camps. Groening’s testimony and his defense of his actions clarify the imperative that we cannot stand by and do nothing while others are hurt.
