Concentration Camp Existence

"Concentration-camp existence...taught us that the whole world is really like a concentration camp...There is no crime that a man will not commit in order to save himself. The world is ruled by neither justice nor morality, crime is not punished nor virtue rewarded, one is forgotten as quickly as the other. The world is ruled by power."--Otto Friedrich, quoting the poet Tadeusz Borowski in The End of the World
