“How many forgotten heroes sleep in history's great cemetery?”
Laurent Binet, HHhH

“Memory is of no use to the remembered, only to those who remember. We build ourselves with memory and console ourselves with memory.”
Laurent Binet, HHhH

“The dead are dead, and it makes no difference to them whether I pay homage to their deeds. But for us, the living, it does mean something. Memory is of no use to the remembered, only to those who remember. We build ourselves with memory and console ourselves with memory.”
Laurent Binet, HHhH
