A Pile of Shoes

This post has got nothing to do with sales and marketing. It is just that this is a sort of break for of you out there.

I guess all of you have read about the Holocaust and the Nazi Concentration camps.I have too and to be honest, it never struck me as such a big tragedy that the world wants me to believe.
I am not anti-Semitic but I didn’t see the reason for the hullabaloo.People die in my country day-in and day-out.

  Genocide has been carried out by all-powerful countries, so why is this so special-US, Britain, Spain, Portugal, France et al.I wondered what was all that big deal for.

I came to know the answer from this photograph. The picture shows the pile-up of shoes of those human beings killed. They had to remove their shoes, throw it into the pile and then  enter the gas chambers at Auschwitz. 
I have only today realized the importance of the holocaust, as an example of the evil to the ultimate apogee. Look at the photograph and if you have some imagination, think back. You will have a lump in your throat.
