In Wiesel’s uncensored Hebrew 'Night' manuscript, unveiled here for the first time, the author expresses desire to take revenge on the Hungarians, lashes out at fellow Jews and describes sexual scenes from the train to Auschwitz.03:47 01.05.16 | 5 comments
as a Jew I will never forgive the Nazis, but this generation of Germans I can forgive after all those years. Modern Germany has fortunately become a democracy and admitted responsibility for its WW 2 crimes. It can never undo what happened, but this country is aware of its pitch dark past. As such I feel respect for Germany and this generation of Germans, and it became a country that I can visit without fear. Not every country was as honest about its history and I noticed that by far the majority of Germans still feel a sense of guilt. Austria and Japan are quite different: they never admitted guilt and rather feel victims.
