Q. Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today?
Absolutely. We are living with the impact of these events, rules and laws. We are living with the impact of some people believing that they have more rights than others because of the color of their skin, the language they speak, the religion they follow.
These rules and laws have led to other rules and laws. Rules and laws that have allowed our society to become divided and unequal (not that equality ever truly existed because of these rules and laws).
Q. What are your thoughts after viewing these videos?
Though I knew about many of the things discussed in the videos, I am originally from Texas and did not know about the bathroom riots - and that is horrifying. Though I always knew there was trouble with the border, the role of Zyclon B (as a Jew) is unimaginable. And I am grateful for my eyes being opened. We must continue to speak out when we see injustice, when we see illegal actions, when our laws themselves are wrong.
