It's a silly thing to say of course, but when I read about the legalization I was so proud of South Africa. I once read Mandela's autobiography and am fascinated by this country ever since. They actually dared to face their past and learn from it. Above all, they learned to forgive and leave the anger and pain behind. And they drew the simple yet radical conclusion that to prevent a horror like the Apartheid from happening again, you could not ever allow human rights to be divided, only partially granted to some or granted to certain groups again.
Sadly, this seems to be more than Germany ever achieved... I for one know where to move to should the Nazis get back to power here again (which is not as remote a possibility as it might seem to some).
