Once again, sorry for posting on older episodes/topics, but I'm running through episodes I've missed and m commenting on them respectively.
"Danksy"... I originally read that as "Dansky", and though it was something Dan named after himself. But, okay, Richard Danksy, thanks for this episode (even though I haven't watched it fully yet).
But while this is an awesome idea, and as much as Dan goes on about it... wasn't this supposed to be about a video game? Why are we talking about a book? Is the book written as IF it were a video game? How does that work?
You know, sometimes I get worried, that if enough time goes by, and holocaust survivors and WWII veterans eventually die off, this sort of thing will be forgotten and swept under the rug. Hell, I read about how someone had to go to court to prove that the Holocaust actually happened! And this wasn't even all that long ago! There were people back then and perhaps even still now, who thought the Holocaust was so horrible, they refuse to believe it ever happened! And if this is happening while there are still survivors, imagine what will happen further down the road when those survivors are gone!
Well... it's a lot to think about, that's for sure.
I agree with you in that the holocaust is a thing that we, as a species, should never forget, I don't think that "forgetting" it is the issue.
I live in Austria and the local sights of the Shoah here are government funded museums. Mauthausen still stands to a good degree and so does Auschwitz.
