For the next few days there are going to be tens of articles and analysis for the causes of one more horrific hate shooting. The number 49 is beyond devastating. But what never stops horrifying me is the youth of the shooters. This time in his twenties …again.
Twenties supposed to be still the period of romanticism in human life and not of hate. Still, 49 dead verify the opposite. 49 humans that defer with the killer in their religion and place of birth murdered in their place of worship. In the name of …what? Christianity?
But returning to the young of the shooters’ age there is a truth we must face. Most of us who have born before the end of sixties, having lived the horror of the WWII directly or indirectly through our parents’ eyes, tried hard to protect our kids from the repulsion of genocides, cannibalism, fascism and Nazism separating the horror from the fear and isolating the events geographically. In this naïve mission we all found the support of the states. The brightest example the fact that for a lot of nations (Hungary and Poland among others) the holocaust is something between the Germans and Jews and not a global crime that weights on all of us.
We pulled our conscious away from our sins creating a tempting and full mysticism forbidden apple instead of a truly rotten, parasitic and poisonous crop. And the youth went for it instead after it.
There are two generation plus a third entering about now, who believe that the Holocaust was something isolating that happened in a specific place lost in history like …the Atlantis. Poland wants to erase from history any connection with the concentration camps even though the most famous one was in Poland guarded by Germans and among others: Polish collaborators. The same Polish who participated in one of the worst anti-Semitic hunts in history in the Warsaw Ghetto.
Younger generations don’t learn anymore human history. They don’t learn the dark side of humanity. They learn isolated generalizations and selected events that raise their “patriotic” spirit. If you are not in Israel, the holocaust might not even be part of your education and the Nazis are like …emo with black shining uniforms and a mania for parades and not the serial killers they really were.
