Mutual Recognition and the Path of Reconciliation

Via, I found out about an article by Professor Baruch Kimmerling of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem called The Two Catastrophes.

He then proceeds to make a case for the idea that the first step toward moving beyond the past is understanding each other’s memories.
