Most People were UNAWARE

"In fact, most people were not aware. Although it is difficult for rescuers to understand, other people saw the situation differently. They did not see the world the rescuers did. Like a horse shielded from sights to the left or the right, most bystanders were equipped with blinders... The kept their vision narrow to protect themselves and allow themselves to focus on surviving...."

"The ability to see clearly, to strip away the gauze of Nazi euphemisms and recognize that innocents were being murdered, is at the heart of what distinguishes rescuers from bystanders."
