1. high moral standard
Toledano Jean-Pierre ,   Israel   (01.23.15)
She is a woman with a tremendous high moral norm, but I would not be able to do the same.
2. She's a kinder soul than I am
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.23.15)
I belong to an organization called "Generation After" -- both my parents, z"l, were concentration camp survivors. A while ago, an organization of children and grandchildren of convicted Nazis -- many of whom were executed by the Allies -- wanted to meet with us. I walked out in complete disgust. All they did was whine about how when people find out who they are, they are treated unfavorably, and how they are discriminated against, and how it's so burdensome that they don't have a father, or a mother, or a grandfather, or a grandmother. One giant pity party. Enough to make anyone hurl.
3. First step in reconciliation...
Avi ,   NYC, USA   (01.23.15)
And the next chapter in the Jew-Gentile reality melodrama: Arik Sharon's grandchild adopted by a survivor of Sabra and Shatila massacre. Why not?
4. it's not up to her to forgive other peoples
cain ,   australia   (01.23.15)
murders. Even if she is deranged from her suffering and wishes to forgive the monsters personally, she is still guilty of causing others to suffer and die if she has power, but the assumption is she is insane from suffering. Classic Stockholm syndrome.
5. according to jewish law
CJK   (01.23.15)
crimes committed by humans against humans can be forgiven only by the victim herself. no one can forgive the perpetrator of a crime except the victim. crimes committed against g-d can be forgiven only by g-d. eva mozes can forgive the nazis in her name only. their sins are not washed away since their crimes were committed against the entire jewish people and against the most holy one.
6. However our dead cannot forgive
Roland ,   london England   (01.23.15)
7. I will not judge her, but....
forged in fury ,   usa   (02.03.15)
Not for me to judge her, but I think Zachor v'Timcheh would be a better course of action.
8. to nr. 4 - Cain, Australia
Harmen Breedeveld ,   Nederland   (02.11.15)
Dear Cain, I do not think she forgives the Nazis for the crimes against other people. As I read it, she only forgives the Nazis for their crimes against herself.
