The Human Color of Syria

This is a mere glimpse of a perspective we are missing as we've been watching Syria for the past five years.  In the near future, a child will raise his/her hand in class and ask: "How could Israel, Germany, United States - and everyone who knew about the holocaust, let it happen again?"

Did not enough people die to draw the comparison?  Not enough human suffering?  Could you not relate to them because they are of different culture and religion?  Did you have too many problems of your own to be involved in other people's sufferings?  Did you feel simply helpless to do anything about something so large?  Felt you lacked the power to make any difference? 

How do you think the people who watched the rise of Nazi Germany answered these questions?

What are your answers?
