    Yeah. For the split second it took the Kraut to aim at you and pull the trigger.
    Lack of back bone by Europe is why we had to step in and save their asses to begin with, they had the people.

    There were many ways to protect Jews in Germany. Standing in front of them or making it well known was only one... and a fairly unsuccessful one at that. He could have meant that he would have hidden me, or helped me escape.

    Of course, those are viable options.

    Re: If you lived in 1938 Germany...[W:104]

    Would've depended on my family. In this reality, I'm of mixed descent; I can pass for white, but a lot of my family can't. If me and my family existed in 1930's Germany, I'd be trying to get my family out of there as quickly as possible-- unless one of my close kin gets killed, in which get case I get myself killed seeking revenge. If me and my family were lily-white standard-issue Deutschevolk, I'd probably go along to get along or even participate enthusiastically in order to get ahead. Being honest with myself, I probably would have gone along with a number of atrocities; I'm not burdened by an overabundance of conscience and even today I consider Nazism the lesser evil compared to the Soviets and international socialism.

    In the end, though, I'd have probably ended up being executed anyway-- either for resisting the regime or being a part of it, or simply for coming down on the wrong side of some infighting. I just don't have the good sense to know when to keep my head down and my mouth shut.

    So then, what would you have done back in 1938 ?
    I did not vote. I wrote the reason I did not.

    I didn't say I am superior, but if you feel so based on previous discussions, then thanks

    I think the NAZIs would be pretty impressed with what we have managed in this regard, today.

    Imagine a whole society living entirely within a "box" mindset, where they are completely unable to think outside the box. Now that would be tragic, but accomplishable in todays world.

    This is true, but it is also the easy answer. This also sidesteps the fact that many people today place blame on those who did nothing to stop it.
    The easy answer is saying you would resist. Completely uncontroversial and based on absolutely no evidence.
