How do you kill eleven million people?

(The Andy Andrews book How Do You Kill 11 MILLION PEOPLE? he writes . . . ) “ “11,283,000-the number of people recorded who were killed by Adolf Hitler between the years of 1993 and 1945. Incidentally, that particular figure only represents institutionalized killing. I does not include the 5,200,000 German civilians and military war dead. Neither does it include the 28,736,000 Europeans killed during World War II as a result of Hitler’s aggressive governmental policies.” “What we need to understand is how eleven million people allow themselves to be killed.” “So why, for month after month and year after year, did millions of intelligent human beings –guarded by a relatively few Nazi soldiers – willingly load their families into tens of thousands of cattle cars to be transported by rail to one of the many death camps scattered across Europe? How can a condemned group of people headed for a gas chamber be compelled to act in a docile manner? The answer is breathtakingly simple. And it is a method still being used by some elected leaders to achieve various goals today. How do you kill eleven million people? Lie to them.”
