Suggested reading

I don't often recommend a book, but I have to suggest you read "The Lost Wife" by Alyson Richman. It's based on true stories of the Jewish people during WW II, and is horrifically candid. The main female character is an artist, and much of the story involves what artists did in WW II, just as they have done in all cultures since the beginning: recording the truth visually. Admittedly, I have been interested in what Hitler did in Europe since I was a teenager, because much of the carnage occurred during the early 40s, when i was born. Perhaps this interest is why I can correlate much of what is happening in our country today with that time, and it terrifies me - as it should you.
