The Polish poet Zbigniew Herbert said it best:

let your sister Scorn not leave you,
for the informers executioners cowards — they will win,
they will go to your funeral, and with relief will throw a lump of earth,
the woodborer will write your smoothed-over biography

and do not forgive, for truly it is not in your power to forgive in the name of those betrayed at dawn


“The loss of memory by a nation is also a loss of its conscience”
