Pope Benedict's Speech at Birkenau May 28

As a Pole, as a Catholic, as an American, and as a human being, I am so moved by this incredibly powerful speech that words are difficult to come by.

It sums up as never has been done before all the billons of words that have been written about the atrocities of the death camps of the Nazi regime during World War II.

Virtually nothing significant will be written in the future about what happened to the Jews, to the Poles, to the Roma and to the other nationalities, including even some Germans, by Adolf Hitler and his accomplices, without the author being impelled to quote one or more of the many powerful truths that His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI presented today at Birkenau in Poland.
