It goes without saying that there is no forgiving Hitler’s Nazi Germany for the atrocities they committed against mankind. At one point in writing the book “Jew Face” I went to the library and took out 3 books about Auschwitz and other concentration and death camps. I did this in order to get an even stronger awareness of what took place so that in my writing I would give the proper respect and attention to the Holocaust perpetuated on the Jewish people. Even though the book does not focus on this aspect, I believe I accomplished that goal.
The question I present is this. Do we forgive Germany today? Today’s modern Germany is progressive, tolerant, and in many ways more friendly with Israel and the Jewish people than many other nations. I have not been there, but it has been told to me by many that this generation is not only accepting but apologetic and that they do not hide or avoid the truth. Nevertheless, the horrors committed by this one nation were so great that an argument can be made that forgiveness is never in order. I would love to know what you think, but for those who wish to respond without a comment I am adding a poll.
