1. "The ceremony was fast so we wouldn't be caught. When it was over, the men all whispered 'Mazel tov' and climbed back onto their shelves. I went up to the boy and pressed the wooden horse into his hands, the only present I could give him. The boy looked at me with big, round eyes. Had I ever been so young? 'We are alive,' I told him. 'We are alive, and that is all that matters. We cannot let them tear us from the pages of the world.'I said it as much for me as for him. I said it in memory of Uncle Moshe, and my mother and father, and my aunts and other uncles and cousins. The Nazis had put me in a gas chamber. I had thought I was dead, but I was alive. I was a new man that day, just like the bar mitzvah boy. I was a new man, and I was going to survive."
Author: Alan Gratz

5. "I gazed around the room and my eyes stopped dead on a little boy standing in the corner. This was a particularly eerie doll. Life-sized and blond-haired and blue-eyed. I saw a little Nazi boy, pockets probably stuffed with scissors and retractable blades. My grandfather on my mother's side was rumored to be half Jewish, which practically makes me Jerry Seinfeld's brother, and thus wary of blond German boys with their hands out of sight."
Author: Augusten Burroughs
6. "Un giorno,però, a diciotto anni, leggendo l'autobiografia di John Stuart Mill 1 , trovai questafrase: «Mio padre mi insegnò che la domanda: "Chi mi creò?" non può avere risposta,perché suggerisce immediatamente un nuovo interrogativo: "Chi creò Dio?"»Compresi allora quanto fosse errato l'argomento della Causa Prima. Se tutto deveavere una causa, anche Dio deve averla. Se niente può esistere senza una causa, alloraperché il mondo sì e Dio no? Questo principio della Causa Prima non è miglioredell'analoga teoria indù, che afferma come il mondo poggi sopra un elefante, el'elefante sopra una tartaruga. Alla domanda: «E la tartaruga dove poggia?» l'indùrispose: «Vogliamo cambiare discorso?» Non c'è dunque motivo per sostenere che ilmondo debba proprio avere una causa ed un'origine. Potrebbe anche essere sempreesistito. È soltanto la nostra scarsa immaginazione che vuole trovare un'origine atutto."
Author: Bertrand Russell
7. "When I was a schoolboy in England, the old bound volumes of Kipling in the library had gilt swastikas embossed on their covers. The symbol's 'hooks' were left-handed, as opposed to the right-handed ones of the Nazi hakenkreuz, but for a boy growing up after 1945 the shock of encountering the emblem at all was a memorable one. I later learned that in the mid-1930s Kipling had caused this 'signature' to be removed from all his future editions. Having initially sympathized with some of the early European fascist movements, he wanted to express his repudiation of Hitlerism (or 'the Hun,' as he would perhaps have preferred to say), and wanted no part in tainting the ancient Indian rune by association. In its origin it is a Hindu and Jainas symbol for light, and well worth rescuing."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
8. "The Nazis were not right to hate the Jews. But their hating of Jews was not without a cause. No one ever hates without a cause."
Author: Christopher Isherwood
9. "It means that when organized philosophies like the Illuminati go out of existence, their symbols remain… available for adoption by other groups. It's called transference. It's very common in symbology. The Nazis took the swastika from the Hindus, the Christians adopted the cruciform from the Egyptians, the—"

10. "Ali za ljubavnog cina ni jedna žena ne ostaje u tom uzvišenom položaju. Vrlo brzo i šarmantno mlada si gospoda uzimaju neka prava koja vrijede izvan njihova stana. Ženi odjednom zaboravljaju pridržati vrata, a do-godi li joj se neka nespretnost, obasiplju je porugom. Zatim joj pocinju lagati, pocinju je varati i muciti te je napokon prestaju nazivati. Namjerno se ne žele ocitovati o svojim namjerama.-Slijede dva-tri pisma na koja ne žele odgovoriti. Žena ceka i ceka, no ceka uzalud. I ne pita se zašto ceka, jer se odgovora boji više od cekanja. A za to vrijeme muškarac u nekom drugom životu odlucno pocinje obradivati neku drugu ženu."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
11. "I had been in France less than 48 hours before that obliging agent of yours had to stop me being run over by a French van full of French chickens because I'd looked the wrong way before crossing the street. Which shows how cunning the Gestapo are. "This person I've pulled from beneath the wheels of certain death was expecting traffic to travel on the left side of the road. Therefore she must be British, and is likely to have parachuted into Nazi-occupied France out of an Allied plane. I shall now arrest her as a spy."
Author: Elizabeth Wein

14. "Dok je došao u Zurich s manje Ahilovih peta nego što treba da se opremi stonoga, ali ipak s mnogima - gajio je iluzije o vjecnoj snazi i zdravlju, kao i o suštinskoj dobroti ljudi - bile su to iluzije citavog jednog naroda, laži pokoljenja granicarskih majki koje su morale prijetvorno pjevušiti kako nema vukova pred vratima brvnare."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
15. "Nella pagina delle cose certe che voglio nella mia vita ci sono scritte poche righe, fra l'altro qualcuna anche a matita, mentre in quella delle cose che non voglio c'è più roba, c'è più sicurezza, più determinazione."

Author: Gene Simmons
18. "Man muss wohl als Frau auch immer ein bisschen Nazi sein."
Author: Hallgrímur Helgason
19. "La fatica e la pena", per ottenere i beni necessari alla vita, e il piacere di "incorporarli" sono così strettamente legati assieme nel ciclo biologico che la perfetta eliminazione della pena e dello sforzo del lavoro non solo spoglierebbe la vita biologica dei suoi piaceri più naturali, ma priverebbe la vita specificamente umana della sua stessa vivacità e vitalità. La condizione umane è tale che la pena e lo sforzo non sono semplici sintomi, che possono essere rimossi senza cambiare la vita stessa; sono piuttosto modi in cui la vita, insieme con la necessità cui è legata, si fa percepire. Per i mortali, la "facile vita degli dei" sarebbe una vita senza vitalità."
Author: Hannah Arendt

21. "The Circus-Circus is what the whole hep world would be doing Saturday night if the Nazis had won the war. This is the sixth Reich. The ground floor is full of gambling tables, like all the other casinos . . . but the place is about four stories high, in the style of a circus tent, and all manner of strange County-Fair/Polish Carnival madness is going on up in this space."
Author: Hunter S. Thompson
22. "When all this is over, people will try to blame the Germans alone, and the Germans will try to blame the Nazis alone, and the Nazis will try to blame Hitler alone. They will make him bear the sins of the world. But it's not true. You suspected what was happening, and so did I. It was already too late over a year ago. I caused a reporter to lose his job because you told me to. He was deported. The day I did that I made my little contribution to civilization, the only one that matters."
Author: Iain Pears
23. "How pitiful is an intelligence used only to make excuses to quieten the conscience."From Ignazio Silone in his book "Bread and Wine"
Author: Ignazio Silone
24. "What do they know-all these scholars, all these philosophers, all the leaders of the world - about such as you? They have convinced themselves that man, the worst transgressor of all the species, is the crown of creation. All other creatures were created merely to provide him with food, pelts, to be tormented, exterminated. In relation to them, all people are Nazis; for the animals it is an eternal Treblinka."
Author: Isaac Bashevis Singer
25. "The women at Dachau knew they were about to be gassed when they pushed back the Nazi guard who wanted to die with them, saying he must live. And sang for a little while after the doors closed."
Author: Jack Gilbert
26. "Zar mi Friedrich ne može reci jesu li moje fotografije umjetnost? Što je uopce umjetnost? Ostarjela sam, a da me nisu uputili u odrastanje. Nazivaju me umjetnicom, premda o umjetnosti ne znam ništa. Moje su fotografije lov trenutka u koji sam ulovljena i sama. Otimam se vremenu kao muha paucini i to nazivaju umjetnošcu! Je li umjetnost bilježiti dubinu? Bilježiti? Nije li i ova rijec infinitiv...? Fotografirati, bilježiti, loviti, uhvatiti."
Author: Jasna Horvat

Author: Karen Marie Moning
31. "Certain people are like 'Oh, here come the Feminazis!' You end up acting 10 times nicer than you even need to be, to be the opposite of the stereotype like 'You're the man haters!' We're always bending over backwards being extra nice. And I don't know if being nice is my legacy."
Author: Kathleen Hanna

Author: Khaled Hosseini
33. "Drawn crudely in the dust of three window-panes were a swastika, a hammer and sickle, and the Stars and Stripes. I had drawn the three symbols weeks before, at the conclusion of an argument about patriotism with Kraft. I had given a hearty cheer for each symbol, demonstrating to Kraft the meaning of patriotism to, respectively, a Nazi, a Communist, and an American. "Hooray, hooray, hooray," I'd said."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
34. "When we first arrived at Auschwitz there were birds. I didn't know what kind, just brown birds, like the finches. They came for about a week and then the Nazis electrified the fences. I was out early the first morning they had the power on. A whole flight of these little birds came in and as they settled on the wire they made quick bright bursts of flame and smoke. The others did not know what was happening and they kept coming in and getting incinerated. The next day the birds did not come close to the camp. We saw them in the distance for a few days, but they never came close. At first I thought they had just naturally learned a lesson, but then I realized they had become sensitive to evil."
Author: Lawrence Thornton
35. "As Viktor Frankl said about the Nazis, you'll never own what's inside me. There I'm always free."
Author: LeAnn Neal Reilly
36. "No state, furthermore, unless it has aggressive military designs such as those which consumed Nazi leaders in the thirties, is likely to divert to defense any more of its resources and wealth and energy than seems necessary."
Author: Lester B. Pearson
37. "A bitter, disappointed, and jealous man kills the man he believes to be his wife's lover, this you consider to be unlikely. A murderous Nazi spy with orders to abduct a parrot, on the other hand—"

Author: Nick Clooney
39. "I think all Nazis didn't see themselves as bad people. I've never met a racist yet who thought he was a racist. Or an anti-Semite who thought they were anti-Semitic."
Author: Norman Jewison
40. "Sin embargo, conocí a muchos internados que supieron ser fieles a su dignidad humana hasta el mismo fin. Los nazis lograron degradarlos físicamente, pero no fueron capaces de rebajarlos moralmente.Gracias a estos pocos, no he perdido totalmente mi fe en la humanidad. Si en la misma jungla de Birkenau no todos fueron necesariamente inhumanos con sus hermanos hombres, indudablemente hay todavía esperanzas.Esta esperanza es la que me hace vivir."
Author: Olga Lengyel
41. "Avevo trovato conforto in Arthur Rimbaud, in cui mi ero imbattuta a sedici anni, su una bancarella di libri di fronte alla stazione degli autobus di Philadelphia; il suo sguardo borioso aveva incrociato il mio dalla copertina di Illuminazioni. Possedeva un'intelligenza insolente capace di infiammarmi, e l'avevo accolto come un compatriota, un parente, un amore segreto perfino. Non avendo i novantanove centesimi per comprare il libro me lo ero messo in tasca."
Author: Patti Smith
42. "One reason that I embarked on a study of Nazi doctors was that in this personal journey, I had the feeling increasingly that I did want to do a Holocaust study and that increasingly I wanted it to be of perpetrators, which I thought was more needed."
Author: Robert Jay Lifton
43. "Think about yourself.You are here because...Your dad met your mom.Then your dad and mom conceived you.So a particular egg in your momJoined a particular sperm from your dadWhich could only happen because not one of your direct ancestors, going all the way back to the beginning of life itself, died before passing on his or her genes...So what are the chances of you happening?Of you being here?Author and blogger Dr. Ali Binazir did the calculations last spring and decided that the chances of anyone existing are one in 102,685,000. In other words, as this infographic figures it, you are totally improbable."
Author: Robert Krulwich
44. "He could pull this off. He was sure of it. It would have been one thing to protect Anne Frank from the Nazis; he was pretty sure he couldn't have managed that. But protecting his family from Anne Frank? How difficult could that be?"
Author: Shalom Auslander
45. "I wish for you all, each of you, to have your own motive for indignation. This is precious. When something outrages you as I was outraged by Nazism, then people become militant, strong, and involved."
Author: Stephane Hessel
46. "Colonization would make of Germany a continental empire fit to rival the United States, another hardy frontier state based upon exterminatory colonialism and slave labor. The East was the Nazi Manifest Destiny. In Hitler's view, "in the East a similar process will repeat itself for a second time as in the conquest of America." As Hitler imagined the future, Germany would deal with the Slavs much as the North Americans had dealt with the Indians. The Volga River in Russia, he once proclaimed, will be Germany's Mississippi.9"
Author: Timothy Snyder
47. "To me the Zionists, who want to go back to the Jewish state of A.D. 70 (destruction of Jerusalem by Titus) are just as offensive as the Nazis. With their nosing after blood, their ancient "cultural roots," their partly canting, partly obtuse winding back of the world they are altogether a match for the National Socialists. That is the fantastic thing about the National Socialists, that they simultaneously share in a community of ideas with Soviet Russia and with Zion."
Author: Victor Klemperer
48. "Questa ridicola debolezza è forse una delle nostre inclinazioni più funeste: c'è qualcosa di più sciocco del voler portare continuamente un fardello che vorremmo sempre gettare a terra? Di avere orrore della propria esistenza e di tenersi aggrappati alla propria esistenza? Insomma di accarezzare il serpente che ci divora, finché ci abbia mangiato il cuore?"
Author: Voltaire
49. "No one who has studied Western history can cling to the belief that the Nazis invented genocide."
Author: Wallace Stegner
50. "La somiglianza è come una dolce sensazione, basterebbe somigliarsi per credere che esistano la comprensione, i pensieri che si trasmettono senza parole, la fiducia reciproca. Si somigliavano soprattutto nei loro occhi limpidi, quegli occhi che purificarono lo sporco del mondo che li adombrava, come il filtro che purifica l'aria torbida e la rende potabile. Sembrava che l'acqua limpida fluisse dai loro occhi verso l'esterno. Il giorno in cui scorrerà sul mondo toglierà ogni contaminazione."
Author: Yukio Mishima

Two women, one nigra and one white, whose voices were part of me, whose hands had comforted, soothed, and taught. One a pine-knot torch and the other a scented beeswax candle against the darkness of my ignorance and fear. Both gone."
