    There is little that freaks me outthan the Holocaust And I m not belittling it at all with the phrase freaks me out Growing up in the 1970s and 80s, I felt sufficiently desensitized enough by television violence to be able to gauge how often I need to shake the jiffy pop and run to the bathroom before the program vi

    Terrifying I have read two books that described a nightmare, painted a picture of hell The second was Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West by Cormac McCarthy and first is Night I still think of this book sometimes and shudder and I realize that evil is never too far buried in us The scene where the line of doomed prisoners splits in two with Mengela conduct
