this video just deflated my ego..as it should.

and for me to be upset about trivial events in my life that have little meaning set against what happened here is sinful..i am humbled after watching this video and sorry for my proud behavioural thoughts.

Why would I want to think about that?

but be careful

Profound words, yes. We need to be careful not to take what we have for granted. But we also have to be careful not to get so caught up in "thinking about Barracks 3" that we feel too guilty to live our own lives.

It's okay to get cranky when you don't get a cellphone signal, or when you're stuck in traffic. Be grateful you have a cellphone and then be grateful you have the freedom to move to another location to try to find a signal.

Just be careful about getting overwhelmed by the thinking about how others suffered, every time you want to gripe about something.

something not just to think about

I think that the message is very clear, something not just to think about, but rather something to remember. You said "think what happened here". I have to answer to you with my thought: "Thank G-d I don't know what happened there."
It's very moving documentary, and we need it for sure.
How horrible is the idea that people need a gift shop from the place like that, nightmares about the place should be a reminder.
I can see your pain and I hope that people did remember that it's no disney land.
Thank you for the time and efford you put in the project. I think it would be very valuable if you will do similar project about hunger in some Jewish families in Israel, and other needs of Israel now. I personally would be very interested in it.
Thank you again for making us think and remember.
