When you must remember

Today, as man­kind, we high­light the hor­rors of the Holo­caust. Let’s take this time to reflect. It is dif­fi­cult, as indi­vi­duals, to believe that we could do some­thing that would bare­ly come close to such an act of human cruelty.

I want to point out that this post repre­sents a conti­nuous pro­cess of free thought, that is to say, that it evolves over time, accor­ding to the influences of the sources of infor­ma­tion that I am adding to my know­ledge and my cri­ti­cal mind. I encou­rage you to do the same, even if it evokes anger, shame and pain. I think it is extre­me­ly impor­tant to com­me­mo­rate such an event.

If you have any inter­est in science, you may have heard of the Mil­gram expe­ri­ments which, you can research them for your­self, have tes­ted our weak­ness in moral convic­tion in an autho­ri­ta­rian context. It goes without saying that his­to­ry chose Ger­mans and Jews to be part of one of the most mons­trous demons­tra­tions in human his­to­ry, but other cases of this kind have occur­red over time.

The defi­ning fea­ture of the Holo­caust, in my opi­nion, of course, is that it hap­pe­ned to “Us”. Eve­ryone invol­ved was in some way our imme­diate fami­ly. A large part of Ame­ri­can culture comes from Europe, and Wes­tern Europe also shares seve­ral com­mon roots. We ins­tinc­ti­ve­ly use the term “Them” for the people invol­ved, in order to place our­selves in the spectator’s seat. But are we not left with a haun­ting thought: What dis­tin­guishes “Them” from “Us”?

Peace to all who have suffered.
