- Diet Eman98
◆ In the Second World War he took no public part, having escaped to a neutral country just before its outbreak. In private conversation he was wont to say that homicidal lunatics were well employed in killing each other, but that sensible men would keep out of their way while they were doing it.

◆ A very important man used to visit her sometimes, and I met him too. He loved children and used to dandle me on his knee. This was how the title came about for this book, Uncle Hitler, although in the old German tradition, I called him Uncle Adolf, even though I was not related to him. This was a sign of respect to an older person, which is why I called Frau Eva ‘Aunty Eva'.

◆ 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.

If we cannot do that, then Hitler and Stalin have shaped not only our world, but our humanity.

Here and there an arm or a foot protruded from the graves, the limbs of restless sleepers struggling beneath their brown quilts.
- J.G. Ballard98
