What happened to me today in my classroom made me cry inside.
You may ask why?
Today someone in my class told me she wasn't interested in the history of the holocaust.
A German girl telling me she wasn't interested in the most tragic thing in German and human history.
"I'm just not intested!" - she said.
"That's something everybody has to be interested in!" - was my answer.
"No I don't have to - just because you are interested in it, it doens't has to interest me" - she answered.
I feel sad and disgusted!
How can it be? How can you not be interested in the killing of several million human beeings in your own country and your own neighbourhood just seventy years ago?
Quote: "I've been forced to go to Dachau during school once, but I won't go there again."
My question: "Why not?"
She again: "Because it's not interesting to me! "
I could have vomitted all over the floor - it has been a long time since I felt so disgusted.
It's so absolutely disgusting. Living in the same small town where hundred thousand people had been inprisoned like animals - where thousands died.
I found that so horrible and disgusting that I started to shiver and I had trouble controlling my voice saying: "No! No! It has of interest for everyone!" over and over again.
And suddenly another girl said to me: "Who cares about it except you?"
You'll normally find me believing in human race but not today and maybe not for another couple days.
