    Quote: "When I go on the trip I think about how important the nation, pride in the people and the state are, I look at the flag differently," one respondent explained, adding: "The army was less important to me before I saw the soldiers at Majdanek. Now I have more motivation," he said." Well, when I see Nazi death camps, the strongest feelings that overwhelm me are the importance to always, ALWAYS, stand up and fight against nationalism, militarism and racist ideologies that emphasizes pride of a certain ethnical or religious group based on a perception of it as superior to others. I guess the question is what is the most important lesson learned from the Holocaust: that humans are able to do more horrible things to each others than we want to believe, so we better watch out carefully and act in time; or that jews in Israel need to build up an ever stronger military to hunt down any resistance from the occupied Palestinians.
