 T.S. Eliot, (in Four Quartets) said that humanity cannot bear too much reality. Humanity certainly cannot face the reality of genocide. Why am I interested in Genocide? As a child who escaped the Holocaust by coming to England at age four on the KT, I live with 1.5 million children murdered by the Nazis because they were not rescued.
