Does commemorating past battles heal rifts or keep them fresh?


On a recent visit to Pearl Harbor, it occurred to me that the American and Japanese tourists each have a different perspective of the attack on Pearl Harbor. For one group it was a tragic defeat, for the other gorup, a glorious victory. What do the two sets of tour guides tell their visitors and how does it differ between the two? Have you ever thought about this when visiting historic sites and do you think remembering past battles serves to heal rifts or keep them fresh?
