The courage it takes for Manosevitz to come to a Christian seminary to teach about the Holocaust is something I will forever respect. She taught us, as Christians, about the great need for healing work between the Jewish and Christian community. We learned, however, that one of the difficulties in making this happen is that many of us Christians are not willing to own up to our own role – of silence, of apathy, of our scriptures and bad theology – in this gruesome history. If we are ever to be truly open to reconciliation with a people group we have deeply wronged, we must first hear the stories and learn the history and then take up our responsibility with humility and hope.
