Canada has apologized for sending hundreds of Jews for certain death


The prime minister of Canada Justin Trudeau has asked forgiveness that in 1939 the country has refused to accept the vessel with the Jews running from prosecution in Germany. The New York Times reports about it. "We apologize to mothers and fathers of children whom we haven't saved, to daughters and sons whose parents we haven't saved" — he has told, acting in parliament on November 7. "We haven't saved them though we were able to do it. We are partly guilty that many of them have got to such places as Auschwitz, Treblinka and Belzek (Nazi concentration camps — a comment of Lenta.ru). For it we apologize" — Trudeau has continued. Materials on teme00:01 — on May 13 "Jews are forced to suffer" They have endured the Holocaust, but them still ненавидятВ June, 1939 the St. Louis liner on which Jews tried to run from Nazi prosecution has approached coast of Canada. Before the vessel was refused to be accepted in Cuba, in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Panama and in the United States. Unsuccessful attempts of migrants to get to these countries have received the name "Swimming of Fateful". As a result of about one thousand which were onboard refugees have been forced to return to Europe. Some managed to escape, having received visas to Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium and France. However at the same time, as fascist Germany expanded the borders, about 250 people have been caught and killed, or sent to concentration camps. Since Trudeau became a prime minister in 2015, Canada even more often began to apologize for the fact that it did in the past. Thus the country wants to wash away guilt for a colonial era and the racist past, especially it concerns the relations with Indian natives. As notes The New York Times, some Canadians treat apologies indulgently, for others such repentance — an occasion to be proud of the country.
