Marek Edelman, January 1, 1919 – October 3, 2009

Marek Edelman, the last surviving leader
of the ill-fated 1943 Warsaw ghetto
uprising against the Nazis,
died today at the age of ninety.

"Man is evil, by nature man is a beast.
They have to be educated from
childhood, from kindergarten,
that there should be no hatred."

"When you cannot defend freedom
through peaceful means,
you have to use arms
to fight Nazism, dictatorship,

"We knew the struggle was doomed,
but it showed the world there was
resistance against the Nazis,
that you could fight the Nazis."

"There should be stress on
the subjectivity of the human being.
You need good material conditions,
a high level of culture, much freedom
and friendship.
And it won't come today
or tomorrow.
It's a long and winding road."
