Canadian guests we hosted in Israel last week just mentioned these during their visit to Vienna. I know that there are Berliners who take their kids on a tour of their neighborhood once a year to teach them the local lessons of compassion, understanding, tolerance, community, and more thru the lessons of the Holocaust. I'm glad Munich might join. Will we, as a nation, place similar plaques in front of houses where Palestinians were forced to leave their homes in what is now Israel? It would not be to admit blame, settle claims, or for lip service. I hope we get to the day when we well-enough understand what we did, and can deal with it properly. This is not to equate or even compare with the Holocaust, but to take responsibility to what was done in our name to others. "Why" and "How" can be addressed personally or individually; but those are other layers of coming to grips with our past...to pave the way to our future.
