"Was I not under a moral duty to repay  my mother for having stimulated in me the interest in genocide? Was it not the best form of gratitude to make a "Genocide Pact" as an epitaph on her grave and as a common recognition that she and many millions did not die in vain?"
(If the Whole Body Dies, 2006, p. 22)
