A Trip for Discipline and Learning Compassion

By Remy Benoit

We too often discount, underestimate, the power of words and symbols. In this case, the symbol was all too apparent.

From CNN.com Prince 'orders Harry to Auschwitz'. Since this was posted there have been conflicting reports as to the veracity of this report. Please keep that in mind.

From CNN.com Bush: Comments had 'unintended consequence.

From the BBC Papers shocked at Harry stunt.

It should not surprise you that people do not know about Auschwitz-Birkenau. Ask around today and find out what is know about WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and for that matter, Desert Storm, or even the current engagement. Once again, and I am probably saying this for the 100,000th time in my life, we need to know where we have been to know where we are going - we need to study real, not "feel good" history. We need to read.

From Glasglow, Lee-Ann Fullerton, and the Daily Record
THIS IS WHAT SWASTIKA REALLY MEANS, HARRY.

From the Memorial and Museum, Auschwitz and Birkenau Auschwitz and Birkenau.

Holocaust-History.

THE SWASTIKA: A SIGN OF GOOD LUCK BECOMES A SYMBOL OF EVIL.
