Why only in Israel? My family who lived in the UK suffered close losses on both sides. My childhood was haunted by the stories of my parents and particularly my schooldays during the 50's and 60's about what happened to their siblings who lived in Nazi ocupied europe. Never wishing to be percieved as a victim there were many fights with taunting schoolmates which left a permanent scar on my psyche. What happened to Jews during the holocaust, particularly with the vile anti semitic poison and images of rats in sewers pumped out by Goebels and his henchmen never ended after the war but left an open psychological wound wich is still present to this day. If children of survivors were not told about what happened perhaps they would be better off. But on the other hand not knowing the truth may make matters worse, It was a dilema for parents of that generation.
