    This article I think completely overlooks on aspect of what the Holocaust has taught us. The statement 'Never Forget' isn't or shouldn't be about never letting a former Nazi live out his old age, nor is it about holding onto every grudge against the bad guy and never forgetting who exactly they are. It comes down to taking lessons and learning from one of the lowest points in history. Maybe this means Holocaust education has to change but I see it as the only way to progress. The Holocaust opened up the door of an evil previously unthinkable, but aspects of this evil are still very alive in the present, we aren't "over" them. 'Never Forget' doesn't mean to hunt down every last Nazi, but it means being aware of the evils we've learnt and collectively experienced through the Holocaust, of oppression, and dehumanization, it means taking these experiences and learning from them to fight the same evils in our current modern day world.
