Others Choose the Path of Healing

The labor camp in Erfurt and, after the war, the refugee camp in Mainz were all I knew when I came here [from Germany] in 1947 at the age of seven. Like many camp survivors, it was not the experience itself that dogged me as much as the why of it. The why seems clearer every day: those who see themselves as victims, nations included, have license to commit these things. Others choose the path of healing.
