Sixty-seven years ago, as World War II was coming to an end, allied troops liberated the concentration camps where Adolf Hitler had called for the murder of millions of innocents, mostly Jews. All these years later, the descendants of the victims and survivors of the camps -- not to mention the living survivors themselves -- grapple with the issue of modern Germany, whether to engage or shun, how to forgive without forgetting. Recently, a young American hockey player has come to embody these tensions.
