"I began to wonder about the
ethical distinction between processing pigs and doing the same thing to people
defined as pigs. Many would argue that moral considerations do not have to
be extended to animals, but this is just what the Nazis said about the Jews."
- From Eternal Treblinka (p. 49)
"I saw the whole globe
symbolized at Auschwitz, and it was covered with blood: people being manipulated
and used; animals being tortured in useless experiments; men hunting helpless,
vulnerable creatures for the "thrill"; human beings ground down by inadequate
housing and medical care and by not having enough to eat; men abusing women and
children; people polluting the earth, filling it with poisons that foul the air,
the soil, and the water; the imprisonment of dissident voices; the elimination
of people of opposing political views; the oppression of those who look, feel,
or act differently."
- From Eternal Treblinka (p. 50)
