Jung coined the term synchronicity and I find it's highly appropriate, yet again. I was thinking just this week about "what was lost" as the possible basis for a story. How the elimination of six million people with a unique culture and attitude about study may have affected the earth. The big "what if." How many more Einsteins there may have been. How many more S. Y. Agnons, Franz Schuberts, Bobby Fischers ... and then you find and point us to jewishculture.org/

Thank you, again.

O.k., maybe not Bobby Fischer... I Googled him after that post and saw that he actually was a sad nut case who became anti-semitic (technically anti-Jewish) in his later years. Bummer.
