I am responding to the column by Kathy McConnell on page A2 of the Jan. 29, "Lessons from recent Dachau concentration camp visit."

  I, too, have visited the Dachau concentration camp, and was appalled by Hitler's audacity and cruelty.

   But the real atrocity in Ms. McConnell's piece is her insinuation that Trump equals Hitler.
