It’s Tuesday again in our part of the world. Time for us to join Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Challenge.
Letter this week is R and I picked the theme Remember as I share with you some of the photos that I have taken while I was at the Mauthausen Concentration Camp in Austria (click here to be taken to more photos from the said camp along with my review of the award-winning graphic novel Lily Renée, Escape Artist by Trina Robbins and Illustrated by Anne Timmons and Mo Oh).
“War is what happens when language fails.” – Margaret Atwood
“The first time it was reported that our friends were being butchered there was a cry of horror. Then a hundred were butchered. But when a thousand were butchered and there was no end to the butchery, a blanket of silence spread.
When evil-doing comes like falling rain, nobody calls out “stop!”
When crimes begin to pile up they become invisible. When sufferings become unendurable the cries are no longer heard. The cries, too, fall like rain in summer.” ― Bertolt Brecht, Selected Poems
“War is like a monster,” he says, almost to himself. “War is the devil. It starts and it consumes and it grows and grows and grows.” He’s looking at me now. “And otherwise normal men become monsters, too (392).” ― Patrick Ness, The Knife of Never Letting Go
