Last night I watched a programme on SBS that told a bit of the story of a woman who was 14 at the outbreak of WW2, she ended up working in the house /villa of a Nazi official and witnessed terrible events during that time.
The programme was really about a meeting she had with this officials daughter (she was born to his mistress at the end of the war),
The whole thing was so sad, these were people who were caught up in terrible events, that really stemmed from prejudice and hatred.
However they were looking at how to go forward under the circumstances, with forgiveness and understanding.
At work today I heard a song that reminded me of all the misunderstanding and hatred that people, particularly minority groups suffer. It struck me as I listened to the words, that I'm closely aligned to some of those minority, or marginalised groups....not that I'm Jewish, but my surname is, and My children have a mix of Jewish blood.....
This is the song that got me thinking.
(Hope no ones offended by some of the language)
