Ron, You describe a postwar German couple coming to see you. They saw the German books of your holocaust parents and they were estonished to see that your Jewish friends had German surnames. They thought you had a German home. You call them ignorant now and feel embarrassed or so. All you are describing is not as self-explanatory as you might believe. For me it is more a sign of that bizarre biased relationship between Jews and Germans. Why can’t you just go away and leave these Germans with themselves? You obviously cannot and you can’t explain it.There is less black and white than you want to make us believe.
