Here’s a strange fact: murder a man, and you feel responsible for his life ’’possessive’’, even. You know more about him than his father and mother; they knew his fetus, but you know his corpse.

During cross-examination, prosecutor Hausner asked Eichmann if he considered himself guilty of the murder of millions of Jews. Eichmann replied: "Legally not, but in the human sense ... yes, for I am guilty of having deported them". When Hausner produced as evidence a quote by Eichmann in 1945 stating: "I will leap into my grave laughing because the feeling that I have five million human beings on my conscience is for me a source of extraordinary satisfaction." Eichmann countered the claim saying that he was referring only to "enemies of the Reich".adolf eichmann

Wars and other kinds of murder have their beginning in the hatred of the enemy and in the unwillingness to be patient with evil .
