A ‘Trialogue’ in Yad Vashem?

Wulff undoubtedly meant well, but one can fear that he did not realize all the implications of his words. In the meanwhile, one has to wonder, namely, whether it would not be better and healthier for Germans to draw a line under their history and to file away the issue of their “historical responsibility.” What began in the 1960s with the question “How could it have happened?” has, in the meanwhile, taken Germans from the vale of tears of their own guilt feelings to a stance of moral superiority. They no longer ask how “it” could have happened, but are concerned that “it” could happen again: not in Germany, but in Israel, because Jews — unlike Germans — have learned nothing from their history.
