I know more than most people about the desire to forget. There have been times when I’ve wanted to deny my past, pretend I was someone else. But we must never forget our past, no matter how much it hurts. Because when we forget, history will repeat itself. I fear that this is happening right now. All over Europe, far right political parties are gaining ground. And if we do nothing, we have learnt nothing. My name is Rainer Höss. My grandfather was Rudolf Höss, the Nazi commandant of the Auschwitz extermination camp. My history taught me that democracy, equality and human rights never can be taken for granted. Never forget. To vote.
