"I was astonished to find out recently that the population of Auschwitz in 1944 was 80 percent gentiles. Of course, as I stared at the page, the horror gradually dawned me – that by then almost all of the Jews from Europe had been gassed, leaving only the gentiles.
You cannot overstate the horror what the Jews suffered. Most of the Jews carted off by the Nazis were highly educated: they were lawyers, doctors, teachers, technicians, scholars who were used to a high degree of civilization, schooled in courtesy, politeness, tolerance, generosity, and earnest and sincere in giving of sympathy to those who most needed it."
