To remember or not to remember

The variety of memorial sites that we visited shows the fact that people are willing to remember and to preserve in the collective memory the historical events. Usually, the negative events are more impressive and persistant than positive ones, so the focus of the cultural events organized on the 9th was to raise awareness about the tragic history. This approach was opposite to the attitude expressed by the large crowd of tourists, that seemed to enjoy the entertainment and the shallow, ‘fun’ concerts and balloons, in the spirit of blissful ignorance.
