'Nuff said

(Occasional item taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes.)

Where in the world has one ever seen a nation that erects memorials to immortalize its own shame? Only the Germans had the bravery and the humility.

-- Avi Primor, Israeli diplomat and, from 1993-99, Israel's ambassador to Germany, at Holocaust remembrance ceremony last week in Erfurt, Germany. (photo: Berlin's Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas/Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe)
