Hate and hope

The bloodiest war in history ended 65 years ago. Those who still remember World War II are disappearing with each passing year. Most of them are well past their 80th birthday. Seeing them on the street you would never guess which uniform they wore so many years ago. For some, that period is a source of pride and heroic stories – for others, it’s a stain on their past they’d rather erase.
