Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today?
Definitely. Horrific historical treatment of specific groups can't help but affect modern attitudes and assumptions. In many cases we haven't learned any lessons. What scares me most is the ability of the majority to 'look away' and create narratives to excuse clearly discriminatory practices. I think the world in general is becoming more insular and divisive after a brief period of internalization.
