Tað, sum vit hvørki kunnu tosa um ella tiga við
Just like the very first time, I, a mere child then, saw the pictures of the piles of corpses in the concentration camps, only skin and bones, to this day, they remain as unfathomable, and somehow, it would also seem an insult to the victims to claim, that you understood the meaning of this nightmare.
That is not to say, that we need thought policing, that we should stop with our efforts to explain the inexplicable. Obviously, we should always strive to widen our spectrum of understanding, yet, I see a risk – for society as a whole as well as for the individual – in denying, due to sheer cultural arrogance, that an evil exists, which, although inexplicable, is as real as the Arctic Ocean and the Empire State Building.
