From Victor E. Frankl

"For the world is in a bad state, but everything will become still worse unless each of us does his best.

So, let us be alert--alert in a twofold sense:

Since Auschwitz we know what man is capable of.

And since Hiroshima we know what is at stake."

(From Victor E. Frankl, M.D., "Man's Search for Meaning," 1947. Dr. Frankl, an Austrian psychiatrist, was a survivor of four concentration camps including Auschwitz, and Dachau.)
