Great article, but something falls apart in Calderon's conclusion in a sea of smiling German faces that mask, for her, a collective Death's Head. If it's true that forgiveness is not hers to give, then neither is it to be asked from young Germans. "Eyewitnesses to horrors...walking among us" -- sixty-five years later -- has an ugly echo of "murderers among us," and that's unfair, if not self-indulgent. And follow the logic here: "That's their contribution in order to make amends. If we get the money in order to create art, that's not connected to the horrors that were perpetrated." Is it ever to be "Shalom" to a new generation, or will it always be "Asham"?
