Reliving the horrifying past

Recently, I wrote about the need to remember the Armenian genocide for BreakPoint WorldView magazine. An article in today's Los Angeles Times describes the renewed trauma that elderly survivors of the Jewish Holocaust face as old age and dementia bring their long-buried memories of brutality to the surface. It's not uncommon for Alzheimer's and dementia to cause people to relive the past, but usually we think of old women playing with dolls again, not the terror of a nursing home patient who thinks the Nazis are coming through the front door.

You're right. That is not something that I had ever thought about. How horrible.

Patricia

Remember the infanticide of PBA's. Is there any particular day to remember the unborn?
