I dreamt I was a Jew during the Holocaust...

http://history1900s.about.com/library/holocaust/blauschwitz1.htm In the foreground is the sign "Arbeit Macht Frei" (Work makes one free). (1945)

 And I think that getting beat up by the German police, being shackled and led off to a concentration camp (in my dream) taught me that in my real life, I don't know a damn thing about human suffering.

I don't know why my dreams are so vivid and hard sometimes. Maybe it's the same texture of the lessons I need to somehow try to learn.

And no, I wasn't watching a movie involving this part of history before bed or any other time in recent memory. Like you, I wondered about the influential source of the dream too.

    I believe dreams have meaning. One dream is a wake up to something you need to know. Two is pay closer attention and three is a portent of warning. You have gained knowledge perhaps from another person who was reliving their own horror and your sharing it gave them a reduced intensity of the horror they lived through, both of you were helped. God Bless. /Teoni

  2. Teoni, thank you so much for your perspective! I think you're exactly right, sharing these experiences does reduce the intensity of living them out. God Bless you too, and thank you for your visit. :)
