Almost 70 years after the end of WW2, a group of 42 children of Nazi soldiers and collaborators participated this week in a purification ceremony in the northern town of Tzfat, in an attempt to separate themselves spiritually from the horrors committed by their elders, in a place so famous for its rich Kabalistic history.
The ceremony came at the conclusion of a workshop which is at its fifth year now, aiming to help the children of the murderers’ generation come to terms with their feelings of guilt.Yori Yanover
