Don’t tell me you can’t do it.

I don’t believe you.

You have “sold” yourself that you can’t and been a great salesperson who persuaded you to surrender to a belief born from fear.

27-year-old Ben Ferencz walked into court with proof in their own handwriting that members of the Einsatzgruppen, the mobile killers of Jews, gypsies, nationals and others in Poland and the Soviet Union had murdered hundreds of thousands of men, women and children.

Presented with “not guilty pleas” from all of the defendants, he presented their own reports in their own handwriting outlining the atrocities they committed. At 27 years of age, he was the Chief Prosecutor of the case having served in the Army and being the sole lawyer available to prosecute the case.

The Nuremberg Trials were the post-World War II trials for crimes against humanity.

I believe it was his first time in court and it was to prosecute war crimes.


I will believe you if you tell me you’re afraid but don’t tell me you can’t do something at work.
