Food Rationing by Race

Bob Grosso reposted this except from September 18, 1942. It was originally in the blog The Old Foodie. It is labeled: Decree Concerning Food Supply for Jews.

Read the original. We are told that in Nazi Germany, Jews were not considered people. This post reinforces that message. Why waste rationed food on a populace that you are planning on killing.

At this time of year during the 10 days of redemption, we can only pray that such an event never happen again and further that somehow, the Jewish people and the world gained something from those times.

I don't think I could be an atheist, because then I would have to say that bad people can do bad things with no repercussions. Death is the great equalizer, but sometimes, death is too easy a way out. Sure, you don't get to kill other people anymore, but there is no way to bring them back. You "won".

I would prefer to believe in God and the soul. It would be fitting if those who were killed had the chance to come back and try again, while those who did the killing were summarily destroyed!

May we never experience such times again.
