Amid the revelation of the Duxbury football team using Auschwitz in its plays, focusing on rehabilitation more than on punishment may be more constructive. Were the team and coach filled with hate, or merely woefully ignorant? At least the coach’s apology sounded sincere, rather than the usual worthless “I’m sorry if I offended anybody.” High school football players have served as big brothers to underprivileged children. Such an experience may be more valuable than being denied games.
A tour through the Holocaust Museum leaves many students in tears.
