One thought on “My Daily Tweets 12-31-2010”

  1. For a fast-paced read, ask you library for a copy of Lebensborn,
    an historical WWII story of a French girl caught in the trap of the SS to breed a Master Race. Then look for the traveling exhibit of the U.S. Holocaust & War Victims Museum in Washington D.C.: Deadly Medicine: Creating a Master Race. Study the eugenics issues behind many of the U.S. state laws in the l920’s and 30’s.
