Memory

January 22, 2010

The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, and its history. Then you have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was.

— Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting
