Best Answer

why should son be punished for father's sin

Best Answer

yes and no - but i have as much respect for the Germans as for any nation on earth - has any nation so honestly confronted its own darkness?

Best Answer

If I recall correctly Dresden was almost totally obliterated by fire bombing towards the end of the second world war.



From the culture that built up the Nazi party and the building of extermination camps for the Jews we have a beautifully reconstructed church.



As I watched and listened to this concert I wondered how the German could justify the evil actions of their parents or grandparents or the British their destruction of Dresden in exchange to the German destruction of Coventry.



How did both sides in this conflict between civilised nations allow things to develop into the equivalent of a sewage works where the scum always rises to the surface? Where was the moral leadership from the Churches of both sides or the Pope to say "NO"?



As I relaxed to this wonderful music from Dresden I could not help thinking how many Nazi leaders had also shown a pretence of culture in listening to Wagner - maybe in the very hall that had been destroyed and rebuilt.



UPDATE - in our replies seems we trying to excuse each individual nation for it's crimes on the basis other Countries have committed similar offences. Maybe the question should be broadened to read:- "Shouldn't human beings be ashamed of their past?" This not only covers crimes against other human beings but against other animals and the environment!

Best Answer

Should we, americans be ashamed that we slaughtered many indian families in cold blood so we could steal America?

Best Answer

Yes! I have always been impressed by the dignity and honesty of the speeches of the American Indian Chiefs. They could not understand why the white man would lie about treaty obligations. Guess what needs to be done now is to ensure the American Indian culture is preserved

Best Answer

No. The present people are not representing their past.

Sure, if they were involved. If not, then of course not. If it was my country I'd be a little embarrassed though, and careful to learn from history.
