4. "What people still do not like to admit is that there were two crimes in the form of one. Just as the destruction of Jewry was the necessary condition for the rise and expansion of Nazism, so the ethnic cleansing of Germans was a precondition for the Stalinization of Poland. I first noticed this point when reading an essay by the late Ernest Gellner, who at the end of the war had warned Eastern Europeans that collective punishment of Germans would put them under Stalin's tutelage indefinitely. They would always feel the guilty need for an ally against potential German revenge."
Author: Christopher Hitchens

Author: James F. Byrnes
9. "I claimed identity as Jewish musicians for political reasons, because most of us were touring in Germany and, at this time, twelve years ago, there was a strong resurgence of Nazism in the places we were touring and part of that was on the music scene."
Author: Marc Ribot
10. "Remember, how often the great art of the past didn't look great at first, how often it didn't look like art at all; how much easier it is, decades or centuries later, to adore it, not only because it is, in fact, great but because it's still here; because the inevitable little errors and infelicities tend to recede in an object that's survived the War of 1812, the eruption of Krakatoa, the rise and fall of Nazism."
Author: Michael Cunningham
11. "...self-important western journalists who'd given up their sacred trust to become cheerleaders for trendy causes, the way communist journalists had once been cheerleaders for the government...They were depriving the free world of its most valuable weapon in condemning and exposing the worst human scourge since Nazism: the targeting and murder of civilians to achieve political and religious ends."
Author: Naomi Ragen
12. "Most American view World War II nostalgically as the "good war," in which the United States and its allies triumphed over German Nazism, Italian fascism, and Japanese militarism. The rest of the world remembers it as the bloodiest war in human history. By the time it was over, more than 60 million people lay dead, including 27 million Russians, between 10 million and 20 million Chinese, 6 million Jews, 5.5 million Germans, 3 million non-Jewish Poles, 2.5 million Japanese, and 1.5 million Yugoslavs. Austria, Great Britain, France, Italy, Hungary, Romania, and the United States each counted between 250,000 and 333,000 dead."
Author: Oliver Stone

The word came afterwards. In their system, I saw discipline. And we in the Middle East, we needed discipline more than anything else. -Pierre Gemayel"
Author: Robert Fisk
14. "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
15. "Ich war noch nicht ein bißchen abgestumpft, ich war noch so ganz gewohnt, in einem Rechtsstaat zu leben, daß ich damals vieles für die tiefste Hölle hielt, was ich später höchstens für ihren Vorhof, für den Danteschen Limbo nahm. Immerhin: soviel schlimmer es auch kommen sollte, alles, was sich noch später an Gesinnung, an Tat und Sprache des Nazismus hinzufand, das zeichnet sich in seinen Ansätzen schon in diesen ersten Monaten ab."
Author: Victor Klemperer
16. "Der Nazismus wurde von Millionen als Evangelium hingenommen, weil er sich der Sprache des Evangeliums bediente. Wurde? - Ich habe das "Ich glaube an ihn" nur bis in die letzten Tage des Hitlerreiches verfolgt. Ich habe jetzt Tag für Tag mit Rehabilitierten zu tun und solchen, die rehabilitiert sein wollen. Diesen Leute, so verschieden sie auch sonst untereinander sein mögen, ist eines gemeinsam: Sie behaupten alle, eine Sondergruppe der "Opfer des Faschismus" zu bilden, sie sind alle gegen ihre Überzeugung durch irgendwelche Gewaltanwendung zum Eintritt in die ihnen von jeher verhaßte gezwungen worden, sie haben nie an den Führer, nie an das Dritte Reich geglaubt."
Author: Victor Klemperer
17. "No class or group or party in Germany could escape its share of responsibility for the abandonment of the democratic Republic and the advent of Adolf Hitler. The cardinal error of the Germans who opposed Nazism was their failure to unite against it."
Author: William L. Shirer
