From Yahoo! News:
Benedict said it was almost impossible, particularly for a German Pope, to speak at such a horrible place.
“The place where we are standing is a place of memory and at the same time, it is the place of the Shoah,” he said.
“In a place like this, words fail. In the end, there can only be a dread silence, a silence which is a heartfelt cry to God — Why, Lord, did you remain silent? How could you tolerate all this?”
“Where was God in those days? Why was he silent? How could he permit this endless slaughter, this triumph of evil?”
Hmmmm, yes, I wonder……….
