A Walk Among the Ghosts at Bergen-Belsen

I believe that one thing that drives antisemites crazy is the Jewish love of life, its reverential treatment of human life and the view that life, and the creation of life is the closest that man gets to G-dliness.

"The 2,000 babies born at the Bergen-Belsen DP camp represent an astoundingly high birthrate, a resurgence of the life force that the Nazis had sought to extinguish."

Can this be said of any other people?

An excellent article.  Do read the whole thing.
