“Denouncing evil is a far cry from doing good.”
Philip Gourevitch, We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families

“The West's post-Holocaust pledge that genocide would never again be tolerated proved to be hollow, and for all the fine sentiments inspired by the memory of Auschwitz, the problem remains that denouncing evil is a far cry from doing good.”

“Genocide, after all, is an exercise in community building.”
Philip Gourevitch, We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families
