"The question nudges us toward realizing that remembering is more than something that we do... Remembrance re-produces our past even as it narrates it and therefore retroactively produces our present selves. We do not remember and make the convenient mistake of thinking we have forgotten. But the unremembered are always waiting to come home again, and there is a good reason to crave and fear their homecoming."
