Good from evil.

An unknown woman in Ravensbruck concentration camp wrote this little prayer and pinned it to the dead body of a little girl there .Oh lord she wrote, remember not only the men and women of good will but also those of ill will. Do not remember all the suffering they have inflicted on us .Remember rather the fruits from Ravensbruck

we have brought forth ,thanks to this suffering .Our comradeship, our loyalty, our courage, our generosity, the greatness of heart ,which has grown out of all this .And when our guards come to judgment ,let all the fruits we have born be their forgiveness..

Betsie Ten Bloom, whose sister died in the same concentration camp, steadfastly refused to hate the guards who eventually beat her sister to death. The dying words of her sister were both simple and profound she said: We must tell people what we have learned here. We must tell the people that there is no pit so deep that God is not deeper still.
