Rebecca Bryn is the next subject of my “A Date With . . .” series and will feature here on Thursday. Meanwhile I urge you to read her passionate justification for writing the book that drew me to her powerful writing. She writes about women of extraordinary courage. Writing the book took courage, as she explains below. Reading it will take courage, too, as there are many harrowing scenes. But nothing can match the courage of the prisoners of Auschwitz and the other death camps of Nazi Germany.

Words have the power to invoke compassion or hate, empathy or enmity. In these days of fake news and scapegoating, it’s important to distinguish between the two.

    Quote: “we must be constantly aware of systemic racism, elitism, and religious bigotry that runs in the veins beneath the flawless surface of mankind’s common skin.”

    Yes. The day we all learn to say, “Mea Culpa” and stop pointing the finger at what is essentially nothing but a figurehead or signpost is the day we may actually empower ourselves to change. Until them, the wheel, it turns, crushes, and turns again.

    “Until them” should read “Until then”
