This is quoted from Irène Némirovsky’s novella Storm In June, the first Act in her WWII saga Suite Francaise. Némirovsky was a Ukrainian Jewish Refugee, who ultimately died in Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. She knew all too well about which she was writing. Please remember that refugees do not flee their homes because they want to. They are trying to survive and to save their families. Remember that they are individuals and families, not a mass or a herd. They need help, not apathy. Do you not find it scary that in 2017 something that was written in 1942 is still so achingly current? When will we learn?
