“The Red Army is advancing with giant strides… Hitler will not be able to harm us, even if he wants to…”
When I had first read this quote it frightened me because that is what all of the Jews of Sighet including Elie Wiesel were thinking because they had heard news that the Nazis were being beat by the Red Army. The Jews of Sighet also doubted his plan to exterminate them. They said that it was impossible to annihilate millions of people. Wishful thinking.
