Fremdschämen

A brilliant exhibition on the Great War was accompanied by a discussion about veterans and in particular the treatment of invalides. The woman in white complained in length about all the 12 doctors who examined her health only to find out that her condition was hereditary and not caused by PTSD. The moderator and the politician both took pride in taking her problems seriously and promised further investigation.

I felt both embarassed and ashamed for the millions of veterans in world’s history who never had any care to speak of whatsoever and were literally left behind.
