Never again was a slogan used by Jewish activists in the 1960s and 1970s, stating that they would never again allow the indiscriminate slaughter of Jewish people which occurred during the Holocaust. It condemns both the historical occurrences of genocide and the intolerant ideology which gave rise to them. It pledges that Jewish people would never again be killed merely for being Jewish.
The Once and Future King is a novel of the legends of King Arthur by TH White, published in 1958. Arthur is presented as a political innovator who uses diplomacy to rule with justice, in opposition to the traditional military hero archetype who uses force to maintain control. It addresses questions of social ethics, such as the correct moral response to the inevitability of war - whether it was acceptable to use violence to attack one’s enemies or if use of force was only justified in self-defense. In the comics, it is a favourite book of both Professor X and Magneto.
My name is Max Eisenhardt. I’ve been a Sonderkommando at Auschwitz for almost two years. I watched thousands of men, women and children walk to their deaths. I pulled their bodies from the gas chambers. I dug out their teeth so the Germans could take their gold. And I carried them to the ovens, where I learned how to combine a child’s body with an old man’s to make them burn better. I saw my fellow workers buried alive under an avalanche of rotting corpses. I saw thousands of murdered people burning in giant outdoor pits. I have seen at least a quarter million dead human beings with my own eyes. And I couldn’t save a single one.
