deathandthemaiden

(no subject)

S is making me research which concentration camps he can visit with his three kids, because he'd like to "see some sights" when he takes yet another holiday, and what else is interesting in Europe. He laughed about the different names of concentration and extermination! He is eager to see gas chambers and convinced that it's all been exaggerated. I can hardly bear opening the websites, I have to look at the thumbnails of skeletons, living and dead, and after my initial objection about the youngest I very much want his kids to actually go, but have little hope: if they will actually go, they still might not "see". I hear Muslim boys like them on the bus every day proclaim it was all a Jewish lie, after they had had it at school.

Wah.

So today an expert asked me if I'd heard of the imposter syndrome and then explained (that) it (means the opposite of what I thought) and it fit me. And just now she says she'd created the word and it doesn't exist officially. But it does. And when I send her links to the definition, in two languages, this special expert says she might have forgotten that it really existed.

Whom can you rely on, who, who?
