Quote of the Day – 10 August 2016: Librarian De La Auschwitz – Antonio G. Iturbe
"Two teachers raise their heads worriedly. They have something strictly forbidden at Auschwitz in their hands and can be sentenced to death if they discover them. Those tools, so dangerous that holding them is cause for death penalty, are not firearms, no sharp, sharp or blunt objects. Those objects that the Reich's implacable guards are so afraid of are nothing more than books: old books, broken, without sheets and almost destroyed. But the Nazis follow them, harass them and obsessively forbid them. Throughout history, all dictators, tyrants and oppressors, be they Aryan, Oriental, Slavic Arabs or any skin color, whether they defended the popular revolution, the privileges of the dominant classes, God's command or the summary discipline of the military, whatever their ideology was, they all had something in common: they always fiercely persecuted the books. They are very dangerous, stimulate thinking."
