Hitler Survivor Katie Worthman: ‘Keep your guns. Buy more guns’

Posted: January 5, 2014 at 1:45 pm   /   by

It is arrogant of human beings today to look back at human beings of the past and think that we’re better than they—that somehow, we won’t make the mistakes they made. Sure, we are more advanced technologically, and yes, we’ve got more social experience under our belt, by virtue of the length of years we’ve been around. And maybe that learning and experience will avail us to some degree. But at the end of the day, we’re the same humans. We have the same passions and foibles. And those can lead to predictable patterns and repeats of history.

Austrian immigrant Katie Worthman, survivor of Nazi and Communist occupations of her homeland, has a message to the people of America today. Don’t repeat history. Learn from the past.
