HOW much short-sightedness boils from today’s most favorite platitude that one should not be a slave to history but look to the bright future.
That the world is an eternal prisoner of the past and condemned to repeat it, was confirmed by last week’s visit of the British historian Paul Julian Wilding to the Institute for European Studies in Belgrade and to Matica srpska in Novi Sad.
This professor at Oxford Brookes University “trapped” his entire working life in researching the history of the most cruel Nazi medical experiments in the Second World War, which most of humanity believes to be “a long-closed history book”, although all victims still have no name and number.
While Wilding described in detail how Hitler’s white coats, led by his personal physician Karl Brandt and the “angel of death” Josef Mengele, subjected 400,000 members of the people who did not fit their vision to identical twins by forced sterilization, by testing the highest pain threshold or by changing the color of their eyes. pure race”, the listeners’ thoughts irresistibly flew to today’s Ukraine.
For four months now, war reports have been accompanied by news about the bio-laboratories that the US installed in Ukraine an unknown amount of time before Putin started the war.
The Western media admit that they exist, but not that they arrived right next to the border of Russia because of an experiment on the genes of Russians.
The top of the Ukrainian government knows the answer but does not disclose it. Moreover, the ambassador of the official Kiev in Germany adds fuel to the geopolitical fire by publicly comparing the notorious Stepan Bandera with – Robin Hood.
Bio-laboratories and who knows what else in that package will be research material for a generation of future historians. Therefore, we are not slaves to history, it is trapped in us.
