Well, it's getting VERY close to blog due dates, and I had no idea what to write about still, but then today I thought of something. While we were watching the footage from the concentration camps I turned to Sophie and asked "Does this even bother you to see anymore?" Her reply was no, and really, so was mine.
I guess growing up I was basically surrounded by pictures and video clips showing what happened. On top of that I have relatives telling me stories and other survivors are regular lunch dates for me. In a way I feel desencitized to the graphic photos and descriptions of Dr.Mangeles "Experiments" and any other accounts of the Holocaust.
At first, the idea of me not even flinching at the sight of a pile of dead bodies bothered me, but then I realized that I have just been desencitized. It just doesn't bother me as much anymore. I understand that this may not be the best thing but it happened, and I was wondering if it has ever happened in anyone else's life. It doesn't have to be with the holocaust but something that maybe should bother you, but youve seen or experienced so much, it just doesn't even faze you anymore. Is there anything else like that?
