A reminder of HitlerLetters to the EditorSydney Morning HeraldDecember 5, 2005
Why am I reminded constantly of 1933-35 when I, a Jew, lived in Germany before escaping to Australia as a refugee from Hitler in 1939? In a fair and free election Hitler was legally elected to parliament with a workable majority. He used this majority to enact laws which later enabled him to persecute certain minorities. He legally changed labour laws, which overturned old established standards. He legally revoked privacy laws, which eventually did away with free speech. Why am I afraid?
