Sometimes it can seem that differences are too deep, history is too violent, or harm inflicted has been too great, for harmony to be restored. But we also see that reconciliation, even in the face of dark history, is indeed possible. The German-Israeli relationship is an example. The friendship those nations have today is a “remarkable” one, a model for others struggling with conflict and hate (“Fifty years on, practical lessons from German-Israeli friendship,” CSMonitor.com, May 12, 2015).
Reconciliation, as the editorial pointed out, takes work, and a forward-looking approach—learning from the past, while also progressing.
