Yesterday I blogged about a film where “Brother Number Two” – the man responsible for the deaths of two million of his countrymen tries to answer why he did it. It was the worst holocaust of our times. The interviewer eventually reveals that his own family were among those murdered.

If you’ve got any better ideas, please share them. I just think we need to do something.
