America could learn a lot from Germany
30 June 2019 | by csjarySee all my reviews

Bryan Stevenson: There's a history of untold cruelty that hides in silence in this country. This documentary was a little hard to watch but it might help some understand the need to treat mass incarceration as an urgent human rights issue. And we could learn a lot from Germany if we truly wanted to change. Because of their history of concentration camps, Germany outlawed the death penalty. They think it's unconscionable with that history of killing people to ever again have state-sanctioned killing. They paid reparations to Israel and made many attempts (still do!) to reconcile with their victims. For doing that, Germany has prospered economically, fostered a culture of fairness and is one of or the most respected countries in Europe.
