People often see the same event from different self-centered perspectives. Americans will tell you they caused the Allies to win World WarII; few Americans will know that more than twenty million Russians died in the war against Nazism or that Germany's decline began at Stalingrad. Elderly SS widows interviewed recently for a BBC programme defended the 'heroic idealism' of the SS and its vision of an Aryan master race. Americans are surprised that British history books see the 'American Revolution' as a footnote in British imperial history. For Arabs, many of whom were Nazi supporters, the Holocaust is best forgotten and pushed to the back of their collective mind. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem spent much of the war in Berlin and the Baath Party began life as the Arab Nazi Party.
