    "... a truly new generation replaced it ... memory consists of islands of knowledge and ignorance." - it seems that you don't know the contemporanous German society well... "Israeli schoolchildren are not taken to march around Bergen-Belsen in northern Germany (the German government wouldn't allow such parades on its home turf), but to Poland, without learning what the Poles underwent during the Nazi occupation." - 1. I suppose, it is no problem to march in Germany, whether in Bergen-Belsen or in Buchenwald etc. The question rather is what will be the reaction in Israel of sending school children for this purpose to Germany, as far as I know many Israelis don't like the country, which is understandable. And you are saying "are not taken" - so I guess it's not Germany who decides where to go and where not... 2. Vernichtungslager were only situated in what is nowadays Poland. These are the spots where the holocaust was carried out. So, their link to the holocaust is more immediate
