What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 34 in a series – “…I guess our ignorance protected us.”

August 28th, 2019

“When I ask my grandmother about whether she was aware, at the time of her own imprisonment, what happened to European Jews, she shakes her head. “We were ignorant,” she says. By the time my grandmother was leaving Pomona, Hitler had been shipping prisoners to concentration camps since 1941, and he’d been gassing them for months, but the Allies did not discover those camps until months later, in December of 1942. Obaachan sighs. “In a strange sense, I guess our ignorance protected us.””

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

What I'm Reading: Those were hakujin beaches. Whites-only beaches.
