[quote] In Europe, many worse things have happened for many more centuries than we can imagine and yet they MOVE ON from tragedy, they don't wallow in it
You're joking, right?
We were just bombed by Chechens from Kyrgystan and Dagestan because they are pissed off about whatever may have happened 10 years ago, 200 years ago or 1,000 years ago. Take your pick.
I just watched series about Europeans from Georgia and Ossetia fighting and killing each other in ethnic violence that has been going on for years. And Armenia is battling people on their border. Again. And then there's Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia, who hate each other and periodically ethnically cleanse each other instead of just fucking living in peace, which is the sensible thing to do.
And there are Holocaust museums in Europe. They're called former concentration camps. I saw museums and memorials to WWII throughout Russia. I saw a diorama depicting the Bolshevik civil war of the 1920s in Tajikistan. No doubt today it's a museum to Takik independence. I've been to the tomb of Timor in Samarkand -- a man who is believed to have killed upwards of 15 million people. Can't they just put that behind them? He was just a man, for heaven's sake.
There are museums and memorials to all sorts of victims, heroes, war victories, war losses, revolutions, counter revolutions, natural events (tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, tornadoes, hurricanes, famine, fire), plane crashes, shipwrecks, explosions, bombing campaigns, rulers, destroyers, rebels, bandits, lawmen, religious events all over the world.
