Sunday links

This Sunday, as most others, bring with it the latest Haveil Havalim. This time, however, it is an especially humongous one, due to elections hype and other stuff, but especially due to Ben-Yehudah's energy and diligence. So here it comes, Haveil Havalim #203 - the real #203 edition.

Let's put an end to the shallow declarations of "Never Again," which have degenerated into denunciations against long-dead Nazis made from a safe historical distance. This is risk-free grandstanding, which German writer Johannes Gross summed up well: "The resistance to Hitler and his kind," he once wrote, "is getting stronger the more the Third Reich recedes into the past."
