Elie Wiesel on his memoir, 'All Rivers Run to the Sea.'

Never shall I forget that smoke.
Never shall I forget the small faces of the children whose bodies I saw transformed into smoke under a silent sky.

We often question why does G'd create monsters such as Hitler and his insane Reich and its criminal Army , killing several million citizens in his own country and the whole neighborhood ? !?

 So far there's no logic answer that makes sense!!
