"The wish of all, in the camps, the last wish: know what has happened, do not forget, and at the same time never will you know." (Maurice Blanchot, The Writing of the Disaster, 82)

Of course such comparisons should not be made lightly. Just as any responsible person would not conflate Guantanamo with 'Auschwitz. Do recall, oh my sisters, and nodding as well to John Caputo, Derrida's "trembling" and "disquiet" at the "exemplary status" Blanchot gives to Judaism, and to brothers (Politics of Friendship, 304).
Will return to writing shortly. There's always Mark Kaplan
