"Abstraction is memory's most ardent enemy. It kills because it encourages
distance and often indifference. We must remind ourselves that the Holocaust
was not six million. It was one, plus one, plus one... Only in understanding
that civilised people must defend the one, by one, by one...can the
Holocaust, the incomprehensible, be given meaning." (Miller, Judith. One, 
By One, By One: Facing the Holocaust. New York: Simon & Schuster, 1990, 287)
