"those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - george santayana
just watched condemned to remember documentary on @rteone
following tomi reichental as he witnesses the effects in the present of atrocities of the past, including the holocaust and srebrenica, and discussing the welcoming of syrian refugees in europe.
jarring in parts, heartbreaking in others. hard to watch, but should be seen. people's capacity to be cruel and selfish never fails to horrify, but the capacity for empathy, fairness, and charity is endless.
understanding, remembrance, change, compassion, humanity, right, truth, hope, peace #rememberthepast #changethefuture #tomireichental #condemnedtoremember #irishfilmboard
