When I was a kid I spent a year in Israel. While there, I visited the Holocaust museum called Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Tustin Amole's opinion piece in The Gazette on Aug. 25 reminded me of the horrors I saw there. But the most important thing to be learned by a visit to the Holocaust museums is that this annihilation of a people must never be allowed to happen again.
I listened with horror at the first "two sides" speech of President Trump. Everything one needs to know about Trump was contained in that speech. There is a time to recognize evil and to speak clearly and unequivocally about it. The German people were afraid for their lives; that fear is where we must never go. If evil is to be stopped, it must be as soon as it is perceived.
Amole's father experienced firsthand what happens when evil is allowed to fester in the land. Visit a Holocaust museum, see the lives given up to evil. Never forget, and speak out, sooner rather than later, because for the victims of evil, later never comes.
