Two recent articles of Bradley Burston, one about Pesach, slavery and freedom, the other about the role the Holocaust plays in our lives, and about how we should honor the memory of its victims: "Just this once, however, it might be time to look at the Holocaust for what it remains - a wound that will never heal, an experience that is beyond our experience, comprehension, or puny, wrongheaded automatic comparisons to current events.Just this once, after all these years, let us honor the victims and survivors with introspection, with compassion, with modesty, with respect, with awe. ". An article on a similar subject was written by Tom Segev.
