    Nedim...I know the name's been deleted , but that was part of history. If we deleted everything offensive to us today, no one could really learn what life was like " back then "....I remember back in the late 40s ,I went for my piano lesson...my teacher was a Jewish German and she had just recieved the news that her whole family had been gassed in the camps. We spent the whole lesson time with her telling me everything. I was about your age, and I'll never forget it. Things like this can only make you grow and appreciate how much we've learned in time. I appreciate that you were offended ..had it been used today ...but this was 100 years ago.

    I agree. We have to learn from our history and too often we don't. We just keep repeating it.

    I understand all of that, but the reason it offends me is because it makes me think of all those bad things that happenned back then. I'm not saying its anyones fault who is on the forum.

    We didn't think you were blaming anyone here, Nedim. You've far too much good sense for us to think that! ;)
