To Remember is Not Enough

By Ismar Schorsch

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, November 11, 1994

The author, Chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, discusses the efforts of modern, democratic Germany to disclose, remember and prevent the recurrence of the Holocaust. He names examples demonstrating these efforts, and argues that while Jews must remember the brutality of the past, the Jewish world must also reinforce the vast majority of modern Germans who accept the burden of their history and have done so much to atone for it.
