This is What Box Car Republicanism Would Look Like

Those planning to Abstain for Trump in the November 2016 US Presidential Election would do well to consider this powerful photo of what Box Car transportation looks like. It was taken in April, 1945 by Major Clarence Benjamin and shows a train of Jewish prisoners that had been intercepted by Allied Forces. This is the moment they learned that the train would not be heading to a Concentration Camp and they had been liberated. Not suggesting Trump has gas chambers on his mind, but deporting millions of families would certainly not be bloodless.

Jews saved 1945

 

About creativeconflictwisdom

I spent 32 years in a Fortune Five company working on conflict: organizational, labor relations and senior management. I have consulted in a dozen different business sectors and the US Military. I work with a local environmental non profit. I have written a book on the neuroscience of conflict, and its implications for conflict handling called Creative Conflict Wisdom (forthcoming).
