Sixty Years Later by digitalfrrreak Sixty Years Later by digitalfrrreak
People should not forget.

I had meant to take a picture of one of these things for a while. I had seen many of them painted on the walls on the road I usually walk down to go to school, but by the time I had finally taken my camera along, somebody had sprayed over the Kreuz, covering all of them.
Now, I wanna express some considerations about this: first, whoever did this perhaps, and I repeat, perhaps, was the random kiddo who did not exactly understand what he was doing and did it just because it would have made him feel "cool". Like, "I'm cool cos I did something which goes against everybody's common sense and judgement", and that's all - at least I hope so. Because if that wasn't the case, then whoever did this did it because he had meant to do it for real, as in, really believing in what he was doing, and that is the utmost shameless thing one could ever do. I really mean it. And it saddens me that even today, sixty years later, people still dare to think that what the Nazis did could be even remotely right. And somehow I'm ashamed to live and be part of a society which still allow such thinking, which still has this sort of thoughts, especially considered that whoever did this had most likely to be a youngster, or - even worse- a group of youngsters of about my age. It's so ugly, so bad, so completely awful and wrong.
I'm glad one day, while walking in a completely different zone of the town, I found this one symbol still intact. I was lucky to have the camera with me as well.

People should not forget, people should not accept, people should not forgive what has been done there.

Don't worry guys, even if the Nazis did win WW2 they would have a whole lot of trouble keeping the regime in one piece. Add to that the fact that every disaster that comes that way would now only find them to pound. Even they would be suffering as, natural disasters, disease, and accidents start to claim some of them. All of them would get the same treatment as everyone else in the world trying to get a handle on things they can and cannot control.

very well wrote "I´m ashamed to live and be part of a society wich still allow such thinking..." oh yes, I agree. But vor 60 years that thinking was for so much people normal, it really scares.. What can we expect from such a humanity? We never know when a new sick person disposes the whole nation to do such a big crime.

Thanks.
Isn't it crazy just how far one single person can go ! Let's just hope that some day we'll come across someone who will be able to drive people out of warfare instead of straight in for a change...
