Quote of the day 21st September 2021

 “Indelibly seared into my memory are the scenes I witnessed while liberating these centres of death and destruction. Camps like Buchenwald, Mauthausen, and Dachau are vividly imprinted in my mind’s eye. Even today, when I close my eyes, I witness a deadly vision I can never forget — the crematoria aglow with the fire of burning flesh, the mounds of emaciated corpses stacked like cordwood waiting to be burned… I had peered into Hell.”

(Ben Ferencz, 101 years old, and  the last living Nuremberg prosecutor, in the book "Planethood" referenced in an interview piece published today on the "The Article" website, "Peering into Hell" which can be read here and is worth a read.)
