America needs stronger ties to Germany now

When German Chancellor Angela Merkel delivers her commencement speech in May at Harvard University, a child of an Auschwitz survivor, Harvard President Lawrence Bacow, will sit right behind her. Yet Germany's leader will also give her speech in a country in which four out of 10 people do not even know what Auschwitz is, or what happened there, according to a 2018 study. The figure for millennials is more shocking still.

While we are by no means condoning every single one of these actions, let alone encourage anyone to draw any...

Question of the Week: Do you consider gender when evaluating presidential candidates?

If a political candidate happens to be a woman, does that make a difference to you? Perhaps more specifically, if a candidate for president is a woman, does that make you more inclined to vote for her? That’s our Question of the Week for readers. Other democracies — including one, India, even larger than our own, with Indira Gandhi — have had national leaders who are women for generations. No world politician loomed larger on the late 20th-century stage than Britain’s Margaret Thatcher, and Ther...
