I hope that one day a people won’t have to pay for the past crimes of one group, but there are still many Jews that harbor mistrust and hatred for Germans, my mother is one of them. We have had many discussions on the subject and I feel that even after such as terrible crime as the Holicaust it is better to let go of hatred. What should come out of it is a renewed vigilance against all forms of racism. However I am another generation removed from those who suffered during that time. For that reason I have patience with my mother and grandparent’s negative views towards Germans despite my personal feelings. I understand that for them the tragedy is much too close and it is easy to give into hatred.
