Let Us Remember - Then Let Us Forget

Auschwitz memorial services are about remembering. Those who forget the past are doomed to see it repeat itself.

But the ultimate point of remembering is forgetting. We want to move on with life and deal with one another in perfect faith, like innocent children who haven't yet learned the terrible ways of the world.

G-d teaches us through example. We ask for forgiveness and are forgiven. It is as if nothing happened.

Unfortunately some people distort G-d's ways out of evil intentions. They deny the past and pretend all is well in the present.

Think critically, and do not be fooled.
