Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

drawing parallels with the Nazi period is not fruitful.

this does not make it taboo, just a heavily mined area.

into which comments such as 'greeks are the new jews' or 'gaza=auschwitz' to chose a couple of facile invented examples would be a guaranteed source of expensive explosions.

yet neither would surprise me if seen at a protest, against germany's present policies wrt the EU, or at a rally for palestinian rights.

comments cleverly crafted to really seek insight, with respect to all concerned, should be encouraged, imo.

these are major historical landmark events and should be deconstructed whenever possible, for the very good reason that we want at all costs to avoid ever smearing humanity with a repetition.
