Twitter for iPad : Michele Girard One of the biggest challenge when we study the tragedy of #Auschwitz, is to understand that the perpetrators were not monsters. They were people - fathers, husband's, sons and dog owners - who were able to do monstrous things on behalf of the hateful ideology they believed in.

Twitter for iPad : Randy C Jenny Luzmoor Norm Hannah Arendt was talking about perpetrators as “thoughtless” bureaucrats who acted not out of ideological conviction but personal ambition.

And yet we know today that it was not just "banality of evil" but far more dangerous inner identification with evil.

Twitter for iPad : We usually remind you faces of victims. Looking at perpetrators is harder but it's a necessary warning.

People are able to accept ideologies that rationalize and promote hatred & evil. They can became murderers because they feel 'superior'.

This is the scary part of the story. twitter.com/auschwitzmuseu…
