Kids React To: The sudden realization of their own mortality

Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.
I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.
I wrote about a bit of this in that essay on genocidal rape and historical and legislative avoidance of the matter. The one that got the award. These kinds of experiences were typical of the women in the concentration camps, but this is exactly the kind of thing that has been hidden from history because they are not seen as the ‘typical’ experience… which means that it is is not the man’s experience. These sort of stories are considered too womeny and too subjective to be safely reported in ‘objective ’ history. It’s fucking bullshit.
How the hell do I get my hands on this giant for my students?
It’s called Open Dyslexic, and it’s available for free. I’ve used it for my students with dyslexia, and they say it really does help a lot.
