See here for an article by Howard Shultz, chairman of Starbucks, describing his meeting with Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel, in which the latter teaches him "the lesson of the Holocaust."
"Okay, gentlemen, let me
tell you the essence of the human spirit.
"As you know, during the Holocaust, the people were transported in the
worst possible, inhumane way by railcar. They thought they were going
to a work camp. We all know they were going to a death camp.
"After hours and hours in this inhumane corral with no light, no
bathroom, cold, they arrived at the camps. The doors were swung wide
open, and they were blinded by the light. Men were separated from
women, mothers from daughters, fathers from sons. They went off to the
bunkers to sleep.
"As they went into the area to sleep, only one person was given a
blanket for every six. The person who received the blanket, when he
went to bed, had to decide, 'Am I going to push the blanket to the
five other people who did not get one, or am I going to pull it toward
myself to stay warm?'"
And Rabbi Finkel says, "It was during this defining moment that we
learned the power of the human spirit, because we pushed the blanket
to five others."
And with that, he stood up and said, "Take your blanket. Take it back
to America and push it to five other people."
