July 11,2012 We are at lunch break and I thought it would be best to write a bit about this morning. Ephraim Kaye took us through the most difficult part of this conference "The Final Solution" We went through the death process from the Eingintsgruppen to the labor camps, concentration camps and extermination camps. We went through three basic questions: Who gave the order to killed the Jews, When did it begin and Who are the people responsible. All difficult questions. We looked at many books including Ordinary Men, which I use in class, and many others I may have to add to my library. Ephraim talked about his experiences having fought in 2 wars in Israel, and yet believes he , and most he knows were not capable of committing mass murder- as is one of the theories that we are all capable of becoming mass murderers in certain circumstances. After lunch we will have testimonies from four survivors. Tonight we will tour the Kotel but from the underground tunnels
