Dresden death toll less than 20,000

Dresden is an interesting phenomenon. It seems that inflation of the Dresden numbers goes hand in hand with understating the guilt, and impact of Germany's actions in WWII.

They weren't Jews, so you can tinker with the numbers of the dead to your heart's content.

You say weak attempt because it doesn't report what you would have liked.

20,000 no more

Re: Dresden death toll less than 20,000
Oh well.

Tell me can anyone really wrap their heads around the loss of life after a thousand?

I mean we can feel, truly feel the loss of a life, or a dozen lives - but when we start getting into the thousands, millions it all becomes just statistics we are hard press to match the numbers with any real feeling.

After I am dead (which will, if the Lord is kind, not be for a couple more decades) My generation will be gone. We, The Children of those who witnessed the war, and we who where but mere babes during that horror will be gone soon enough be gone. most of those who fought in it are gone, most of those who lived it are gone.

Once my generation is gone, the numbers will come down - a lot, on all sides. And you youngsters will forget, many already have forgotten what life was like when....

A Generation or two or three removed from the events means you all do not feel them cannot related to the fathers and grandfathers who returned from the war, their eyes revealing some dark horror that one can only imagine. You are not the witness to the wives and the mothers who experienced first hand the lost of their men to the machineries of the war.

Even Europe, upon whose stage the war was fought is forgetting, the traces are vanishing, and soon there will be a few memorials and the hot blood of anger and hatred and the thirst for war will once again arise.

When we, those who are the last testament to these things have been buried, I fear that history will repeat itself.

May God have mercy on you.

Re: Dresden death toll less than 20,000
My opinion is that it's somewhere in between the most extreme numbers that have been published, so my uneducated guess is around 45,000.
