A shiver

By Anna Foa*
I get a photo on Facebook. It is set in an unspecified American city in 1941. It is an Easter march for peace. I remember that the United States only entered the war in December 1941, after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. In the front row, a middle-aged woman with a funny hat holds up a large sign reading: Hitler has not attacked us, why attack Hitler? Behind her another sign: Why not peace with Hitler? And still behind: Europe for Europeans, America for Americans.
No comments, just a shiver.
