I never comitted a crime, neither did my parents, neither did my grandparents. But they looked away. I didn't inheritate sin, but I inheritated an inner imperative not to look away. To act, to stand up against all kinds of injustice. When I'm in Israel, I feel guilty. When I talk to an older Israeli, I have the desire to apologize. Not because I did something wrong. But what happened there, was an unbelievable horror. And it doesn't make anything better, but still I can say, me as a grandchild, I apologize for my grandparents looking away. I am deeply sorry for what happened to you and your family, and I will do everything what is in my might, to be the better new generation. And perhaps once upon a time, an Israeli can say to an Palestinian, I am sorry for my grandparents killing 400 of your children in three weeks, for them taking your land your house, but I want to live next to you as equals. Mankind has to grow, and has to learn, not to pass the sorrow on, to transfer the crime and just change the name and actors. For that we have to be aware of what we did.
