How do you think we should teach history to prevent more killing in the future?


Memory alone does not prevent more killing. Getting the numbers right is not enough. History is not enough, but it is all we have. Let us be aware that historians have barely begun to understand the events of the past mid-century in mid-Europe. The regimes turned people into numbers. Whenever possible we should turn them back into men, women and children, to give them lives as well as fates so the lessons from the history stay clearly in our thoughts and hearts and we can pass them to our future generations, but can we, do they really learn, are we able to learn from the mistakes from the past
