Friends in aged care casually admitting to war crimes puts elderly man's life in perspective

86-year old Glen made the grave mistake of asking Karl what life was like in Poland in 1942, discovering his friend was complicit in Nazi war crimes. Karl’s relaxed demeanour and hearty chuckles on the topic of genocide left Glen unable to finish his lukewarm porridge. His mistake was repeated twice within the week as he tried to make friends at his aged care facility- the first being talking about the wonders of China with his bowling buddy Hiro, who reflected far too fondly on his time as a Japanese soldier in Nanjing. Glen lost all faith in humanity on his second mistake when he let Boris share his travel journals from Afghanistan during the 1980’s.
