I’ve been interested in Jewish history since I was 12 years old, I do not exactly know why. Although I studied and study history, I am still torn between understanding and completely non-understanding of the Holocaust. I know that this is not the only point of German-Jewish history, but just all conversations connected to this issue come to this point in the end. What has happened, why has ithappened? Part of my identity is that it was people that have spoken my mother tongue, my ancestors, that perpetrated these crimes.
