“But thinking never took away tears. Only time did.”
Allan Folsom, The Day After Tomorrow

“..Well, I did go. To Auschwitz. And the warning was correct. Not because I was not permitted to describe what I had seen, but because I could not describe what I had seen. The piles of glasses. The piles of shoes. The piles of bones. The piles of human hair. I thought that I had never seen the kind of thinking that did this, that I had never seen this kind of reality. Not in movies, not in theater. Yet it was real.”
Alan Folsom

“He was tired, he realized, emotionally and physically. He wanted to lie down and turn off the world and sleep for a week.”
Allan Folsom, Day of Confession
