"Qui, ai loro posti, stasera sedevamo noi, i vivi. Ma ridotti di numero, rispetto a un tempo, e non più lieti, ridenti, vocianti, bensì tristi e penseriosi come morti."
"We, the living, were sitting in their place this evening. But there were less of us than before and we were not happier, laughing more or more vocal but sad and lost in thought, like the dead."
- Giorgio Bassani: Il Giardino dei Finzi-Contini
"People sometimes ask me, 'Where was God in Auschwitz?' I believe that God was there Himself - violated and blasphemed. The real question is, 'Where was man in Auschwitz?' "
- Rabbi Hugo Gryn: Chasing Shadows
