Defending their honor

Dear Editor:

I’d like to think that if Jews in World War II concentration camps had somehow managed to smuggle in some rockets, they would’ve thought better of firing them into German neighborhoods, for fear of bringing the wrath of the German government down on the innocent women and children occupying the camp.

But I can’t be sure that after years of abuse, starvation and deprivation at the hands of the German army, with the German people standing by idly, the angry, beleaguered prisoners might not have felt justified in defending, if not their lives, at least their honor.
