In every man sleeps a prophet, and when he wakes there is a little more evil in the world. - Emil Cioran

The concentration camps, by making death itself
anonymous (making it impossible to find out whether a prisoner is dead
or alive), robbed death of its meaning as the end of a fulfilled life.
In a sense they took away the individual’s own death, proving that
henceforth nothing belonged to him and he belonged to no one. His death
merely set a seal on the fact that he had never existed.
