"On 25 October 1956 one of the biggest mass murders in Europe in the second half of the 20th century took place on Kossuth Square in front of the Hungarian Parliament building in Budapest."
"Shakespeare, who can say everything, everything, everything exactly as it is, could he have portrayed Eichmann as sequel to Iago or Macbeth or Richard III? The answer is No."
"Unless we are honest with ourselves about such matters as genocide, we will lack a vital element in resisting radical evil when it re-appears as it has done in the recent past – not outside Western Europe either."
"I simply do not recognise the description of modern Hungary provided by Paul Lendvai, a Vienna-based Hungarian writer whose book My Wasted Country represents an indictment of the past 20 years of Hungarian democracy."
"One potential consequence of these responses to the crisis is the future disintegration of the EU. This sounds alarmist. It is in fact realistic."
"The creation of a unified Europe itself was intended as a message for – and as an alternative to – those modern forms of tyranny: Fascist and Communist totalitarianism."
