Thanks Tina for your work and for your article. I left the USA in December last year after having spent a couple of years interacting with many of the people you have experienced. I simply could no longer stand watching the 1930s play out all over again. While I applaud your courage and determination, it may be a good thing to bear in mind that when a society becomes rotten throughout, there’s a time when in order to preserve your own existence it is necessary to leave. No Jewish citizens in Germany, no matter how brave or how dedicated to justice, stood a chance in the face of the Nazi juggernaut. Those who fled lived to fight and help rebuild after 1945 while those who remained perished and were ever after silent.
