I have been listening to the book Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland on Audible on my commute.
It’s a difficult book to listen to.
In chapter 10, the author talks about the clearing of the ghetto at Międzyrzec to send the Jews to Treblinka.
What stuck out at me was that 11,000 Jews were deported and over 900 shot by a cadre of only 350 police.
And there wasn’t one report of Jews fighting back.

Why I am the way I am
[The book sounds as if it has similar content to Hitler’s Willing Executioners which I have posted (this post is extremely relevant J. KB concerns) about before.
I just purchased the Audible version of Ordinary Men and will start it later this week when I finish the current book I’m listening too.
As difficult as the books may be to read/listen-to they present some very important lessons worth learning.—Joe]
