      Boris Pahor (born 26 August 1913) is a Slovene novelist living in Italy who is best known for his heartfelt descriptions of life as a member of the Slovenian minority in pre-Second World War increasingly fascist Italy as well as a Nazi concentration camp survivor. In his novel Necropolis he visits the Natzweiler-Struthof camp twenty years after his relocation to Dachau. Following Dachau, he was relocated three more times: to Mittelbau-Dora, Harzungen and finally to Bergen-Belsen, which was liberated on 15 April 1945.

    “…anyone who closes his eyes to the past becomes blind to the present. Whoever does not wish to remember inhumanity is susceptible to the dangers of new infection.”

    A new CBS News poll finds that surprisingly large majorities oppose banning books on history or race — and importantly, this is partly because teaching about our racial past makes students more understanding of others’ historical experiences. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/book-bans-opinion-poll-2022-02-22/
    The poll finds that 83 percent of Americans say books should never be banned for criticizing U.S. history; 85 percent oppose banning them for airing ideas you disagree with; and 87 percent oppose banning them for discussing race or depicting slavery.
