    I had nearly forgotten. Nearly stopped thinking about it. It was only steps from my office, but still forgotten.

    Now it seems I can't forget it. Today I wanted to forget.

    It is hard to forget, and still remember. We must remember.

    Birkenau, February 2012

    I stood looking at this rose, thinking exactly the same. We must remember. My son must remember. And his son, too.

    I want to forget, and I want to remember.

    I am a multiculturalist. I am alive. And I live to remember.
