Should Countries Apologize for past Atrosities?

Listen to this BBC summation of the Amistar Massacre as called by the British or Jallianwala Bagh massacre as it was called in India.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03q5b6g

Read the two following articles:

http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/jallianwala-bagh-massacre-amritsar/1/927629.html

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2283438/David-Cameron-right-apologise–monstrous-massacre-Amritsar-SAVED-thousands-lives-says-Britains-historians.html

 

After we finish reading the two articles try to answer the question in the title of this post, “Should Countries Apologize for Past Atrosities?” Use the massacre to answer the question in a cohesive paragraph.

Post your paragraph to your class blog.
