“There was no law under which they [Ottoman leaders] could be arrested. Consider the case of a farmer who owns a flock of chickens. He kills them, and this is his business.

“...First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist, so I said nothing. Then they came for Social Democrats, but I was not a Social Democrat. So I did nothing. Then they came for the trade unionists, but I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew… so I did little. Then they came for me. And there was no one left who could stand for me.”—Pastor Niemoller
I have issued the command that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formations in readiness with orders to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Jewish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space which we need. Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?– Adolf Hitler
