"The more you study the holocaust, the less you understand. I've spent a life time studying it and I still can't understand. There were string quartets playing in Awshwitz-Berkenau while a million and a quarter human beings were gassed, burned and turned to ash. What happened in Awschwitz, in the holocaust, was a terrible demonstration of the limits of civilization to civilize if we do not fear God and see his image in every human being. The end result is that hostility anywhere, can be communicated everywhere. I wouldn't say that people are suddenly starting to hate Jews, its just that a few people have learned to communicate hate very effectively and very widely. … I can't see how the United States can remain immune to it, nobody is immune to it."
