I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Thomas Childers from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

This [the Holocaust] must never happen again. ...

and have to ask the question, "How did it ever come to this?"

University of Pennsylvania, in the closing remarks
