Re. Poll: Should names of former Nazi soldiers, allowed to immigrate to Canada after the Second World War, be made public? (Castanet, Sept. 27)
War criminals, sure but not regular army, navy and airmen who were just doing as their leaders demanded at the time.
We could be the “losers” (of a war) someday and just trying to put it all behind us. How would we feel about it then? We really need a new motto. Rather than “Lest we forget,” it should be, “Best we forget.”
Perhaps (then) there would be less animosity amongst nations.
