Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.

Based on the Nobel-prize winning novel by Władyslaw Reymont, this is a story of the Boryna family and other inhabitants of a Mazovian village at the turn of the 19th/20th centuries. The Borynas are farmers, and their son is expected to follow the family tradition. But the already touchy relationship of the father and son is strained to the breaking point when both fall in love with the same woman. Their prides and passions are played out against a richly detailed period backdrop, portraying the traditions, customs, superstitions and folklore of the Polish village life of that time, often through the prism of the harsh reality.
I re-watched the film version last week. I remember watching the series on tv when I was small. I also have fond memories of “Nad Niemnem”.

Remember our Never Again promise, to the generation of the Holocaust? Can we keep it?
The company said the shirt’s design was meant to look like a sheriff’s star from classic Western films. But after popular uproar, Zara decided to pull it from shelves.
The clothing retail giant Zara is apologizing and has pulled a kids’ shirt from its stores after hearing complaints that it resembled the uniform worn by prisoners in Nazi concentration camps.
In a tweet, Zara said the shirt was “inspired by the sheriff’s stars from the Classic Western films.”
Reporting from Spain’s Canary Islands, Lauren Frayer tells our Newscast unit that this isn’t the first time the Spanish retailer has gotten into trouble. She filed this report:
"The shirt in question is navy and white striped, with a big gold star on the chest. Zara sold it online in several countries, including Israel.
"The company called it a ‘sheriff shirt’ for kids. But many shoppers thought it looked conspicuously like a World War II concentration camp outfit, and complained on Twitter and Facebook.
"Zara has now tweeted an apology, and says it’s pulling the shirt from its inventory.
"This on the heels of another Zara controversy. The Spanish retailer has been accused of racism for selling T-shirts with the slogan ‘White is the new black.’ “
The Guardian points out that back in 2007, Zara was forced to withdraw a handbag from its stores because the design featured swastikas.
One thing worth noting is that the six-point star, which looks like the Jewish Star of David, is embroidered with the word “sheriff.” Also, as Lauren reports, “the shirt’s stripes are horizontal, unlike the ones on prison garb worn by Holocaust victims, which were usually vertical.”
Apologize all you want Zara. It was only after you were publicly shamed that you pulled the shirts. The intent was still loud and clear. Pouring fuel on a fire. What’s next for your winter line? T-shirts with beheaded Christians? This Spanish company needs to be called out.
Clearly, the Holocaust is talked about too much because everyone knows everything about it and nothing like this would ever happen. /sarcasm
In seriousness, though, this is clearly a sign of SEVERE lack of awareness. Apathy to anti-semitism perpetuates anti-semitism. The fact that Zara doesn’t know that this looks like some perverse costume mocking the victims of the Holocaust is proof enough of that. If I saw anyone wearing that shirt I would assume that they were out to mock Holocaust victims. I mean, really.
Zara striped t-shirt for kids is reminiscent of concentration camp uniforms
NEW YORK (EJP)—-Giant Spanish clothing retailer Zara has attracted a lot of attention on social networks following the sale for kids of a striped t-shirt bearing a yellow star. A garment that is reminiscent of pyjamas worn in the Nazi extermination camps during WWII. The big yellow star on the right side of the t-shirt is similar to the star worn by Jews though it has the “Sheriff” inscription on it. The Nazis required Jews to wear the yellow Star of David not only in the camps but throughout most of occupied Europe. According to a online woman magazine, reactions were swift on social networks ‘’where everyone cries foul and seems shocked by the bad taste of the Zara t-shirt.’’
The brand didn’t yet react to the outcry. The shirt in question is apparently also still available for purchase on the brand’s website. Zara was recently hit with accusations of racism for selling a T-shirt that bears a slogan proclaiming, “White is the new black.”
Following the ceasefire with Hamas which started about 2 hours ago, Hamas gathered some of its members and supporters to celebrate their “victory”, when a part of the celebration was shooting at the air. There are already a several people recorded killed from stray bullets.
This is how much Hamas and its supporters value human lives.
"I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna kill the human."
