Can a nation encourage this kind of PTSD by fanning the memory of the Holocaust? The balance between remembering, which fades with time ( not knowledge ) and the need to keep it alive ( eg March of the Living) cannot help but create some of the symptoms described here. Particularly the paranoia. The fear that makes us unable to move forward with peace deals may well find its wellspring here. And that politicians use this to forward their own ends....worth thinking about.
