“Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”  The author, John Boyne, ends this story with the words “Of course all this happened a long time ago and nothing like that could ever happen again. Not in this day and age” (p. 216)  Why do you think the author ends the story with these words and what does he mean?
