Quotes

...and privilege of going with my grandmother, Rose Rosenkranz, a child survivor and our educator on a once-in-a-lifetime experience," Suskauer said. "Hearing the stories of what happened to our family from her has changed my life forever. I am now the voice of the past for all the voices that were silenced."
Indeed, the very word "genocide" did not yet exist at the time. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said in 1941: "We are in the presence of a crime without a name." A few years later, a Polish Jew, Raphael Lemkin, coined the word "genocide" to refer to the Nazi campaign to annihilate the Jewish people
Here, for example, is Churchill in his own words: "One day President Roosevelt told me that he was asking publicly for suggestions about what the war should be called. I said at once, 'The Unnecessary War.' There never was a war more easy to stop than that which has just wrecked what was left of the world from the previous struggle [i e., the First World War]."
...What he does say is that it would be absurd to claim that people didn't know what was happening inside Auschwitz. "When the crematorium is constantly burning, then everyone knows that something is going on."
