Not Without a Fight: Passing a Torch of Remembrance Lest History Repeat Itself


At 12 years old, during World War II, Cas Bieberstein was a trained resistance fighter in the Lichtenfield and Warsaw ghettos. His fellow snipers had an attitude. They believed they were going to die anyway, but not without a fight. They wanted future generations to know what happened there so they passed a torch of remembrance to the 2nd generation lest history repeat itself. What did Cas Bieberstein want us to remember? That danger comes when people are singling others out to separate them, a them vs. us mentality. He always said, never forget. At a time when civil discourse is in a sorry state, his story speaks volumes to us.
