    Amazing,

    but the Rebbe implied in his Igros that they really haven’t changed. I do believe there are individuals though, such as this one that are righteous gentiles. And this does help to bolster one’s faith in humanity.

    righteous gentiles.

    I have read articles in the papers (some before the internet as we have it today, existed) articles that said that 70% of those interviewed, who remembers what is was like living under their “fuhrer” Yemach Shmo, said they thought it was better under him then during any other time.
    Roland looks to young to have lived during that time, and he may before form the 30% that would not have liked it back then.

    There is an organization here in Israel that does similar for families that suffered through a tragedy – and need home renovations. They send the family away for 2-3 days, renovate what is needed (often replacing furniture and even adding happy touches i.e., a bulletin board, framed pics, etc) and the family returns to a home as if Mary Poppins had been there.

    Yidden do thing for other yidden the whole time, whether there are problems or no problems. The chiddush here is that it’s a German….German = nation who weren’t so nice to most of the previous generation of Jews….to put it mildly… (not so friendly nowadays too…).
    This German is trying to make amends for something he may feel guilty about. Good for him. And yes BH there are thousands of beautiful yidden out there making differences in many peoples lives. Look out for it and you will see it.
