“It is easy to sanctify policies or identities by the deaths of victims. It is less appealing, but morally more urgent, to understand the actions of the perpetrators. The moral danger, after all, is never that one might become a victim but that one might be a perpetrator or a bystander.”
Timothy Snyder, Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin

“When meaning is drawn from killing, the risk is that more killing would bring more meaning.”
Timothy Snyder, Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin

“The Nazi and Soviet regimes turned people into numbers, some of which we can only estimate, some of which we can reconstruct with fair precision. It is for us as scholars to seek those numbers and to put them into perspective. It is for us as humanists to turn the numbers back into people. If we cannot do that, then Hitler and Stalin have shaped not only our world, but our humanity.”
Timothy Snyder, Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin
