My great grandparents were from Poland and my aunt has visited there several times over the past few years and found it beautiful.
And thank you for this conversation. This is difficult subject and these books are important for us to read so we never forget, but they always fill me with both inspiration (because of the incredibly courage of the people) and anger (because of the atrocity). But I will happily read your recommendation so I educate myself better.(less)

The Secret Life of Trauma: Why Remembering is Important

I didn’t realize what trauma looked like until I was told it had happened to me.

That may sound a little silly, but I had never thought of myself as a person who had a traumatic experience. Trauma to me was seeing someone violently murdered or being brutally attacked and left for dead. Trauma didn’t seem to be what happened to me as a child.

But for 30 years – from the time I was 8 years old

“You can't go forward until you go back.”
Laureen Peltier, Hungry For Touch

“I don’t want you to think too hard about this,” he [Dr. Erickson] says cautiously.
But I am thinking about it. I’m thinking about how I hate to be touched, how I push men away, and how deeply afraid I am of sex. For the first time in my life I wonder why. What happened in that room that permanently stopped me from having intimate relationships?
What did I do?”
Laureen Peltier, Hungry For Touch

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
Robert Frost

“You won’t understand what I mean now, but someday you will: the only trick of friendship, I think, is to find people who are better than you are—not smarter, not cooler, but kinder, and more generous, and more forgiving—and then to appreciate them for what they can teach you, and to try to listen to them when they tell you something about yourself, no matter how bad—or good—it might be, and to trust them, which is the hardest thing of all. But the best, as well.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life
