Boy in Striped Pyjamas

   Posted by: chris   in Fish Talk

Just finished watching “The Boy in Striped Pyjamas” and to put it lightly I am so upset. But beyond the emotions that the movie brought up in me, the disgust, the sorrow, the grief, the hatred, there is something deeper.

The reality that this is not ancient history, the fact that something like this could take place only 60 years ago is stunningly frightening.

I sometimes wonder if the police and soldiers who control us today are only waiting for an order to remove their morality and responsibility and allow them to perpetrate this kind of inhumanity again.

Is there any other animal on the planet with the capacity to do what so called god fearing people are capable of doing to their fellow man?

In this movie it was the Jews turn to be dehumanized and butchered.

What people will be the unwilling stars of a future movie? Rwanda, Bosnia, Palestine.
