When I first visited the houses of the few Jewish schoolmates at elementary school as a kid, I remember I was very much amazed and impressed (and shamed and a bit afraid as well) by the many portraits at prominent places in the houses of family members murdered in the Holocaust. I felt this was very important and significant but did not know why. I still think it is an act of utter dignity, braveness and defiance to always look at one's loved one's who were murdered and so have them always in the house living with them (so to speak), in true defiance of the murderers and espescially of their goal. Kuddos to the young Israeli's who go to Germany to study, work and learn 'Die schöne Sprache Goethe's' and so defy in their way in my opinion the murder of German Jews and and German Jewry. And kuddos to the Germans who welcome them and support them, whether it is arranging a stipend or an invitation for dinner at their home for 'Sauerkraut mit Oxenbraten' .
