Within the last few days, i came across those two articles… The first one is about a 20 years old Greek footballer doing the nazi salute to celebrate a goal and when asked about it he answered that he had no idea what it meant. The second article is what a book that i will probably read, if i can get my greedy hands on it, Doomed to Repeat, The Lessons of History We’ve Failed to Learn by Bill Fawcett.

Im honestly wondering how is it possible that a young man ignore the meaning of the nazi salute ? This particular young man learnt his lesson since he ruined his career and wont be able to play football professionally in Greece but how many more ignore such important of our history ?
