The Hatchet Man
The Hatchet Man represents my attempt to remind the world of the horrors of the Holocaust, because I, like most people, have a tendency to live in the present with at least one eye on the future. Forgetting the past seems to come naturally, but there are certain events that take place in the present that should never be forgotten like anniversaries and birthdays. However, when our memories are confronted by an event as heinous as the Holocaust we would do well to remember, and "never forget" the significance of these 6,000,000 innocent deaths. And since all or most of these deaths were not due to natural causes, but were the result of wholesale torture and murder, we must "never forget" them. We must make an effort, and we must strive by whatever means possible, whether by literature, poetry, journalism, plays art, music, film, movies, etc. To "Never Again!" permit malignant narcissism to rule the minds and hearts of ordinary people whose reason had been blinded by hate. As unrealistic and impractical as it may be, my heart's desire for those who may read this book would be to "Love your neighbor as yourself, and to do unto others as you would have others do unto you."
