It's Monday and it's time for...Borrowed Words


From April 19 to April 29 we are celebrating Days of Remembrance, established by United States Congress in commemoration of Holocaust so we never forget. This year's theme is Never Again: What You Do Matters. I will be posting a few more pieces relating to the Holocaust over the week but I think it's fitting to start with giving you words borrowed from Tadeusz Borowski, a famous and Polish writer and a concentration camp survivor:


"There can be no beauty if it is paid for by human injustice, nor truth that passes over injustice in silence, nor moral virtue that condones it."


from This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen
