“In the case of those who disappeared so mysteriously ...and what a waste... how come now there is kind of a renaissance? ...It’s the human condition, I think, that is expressed in some of those writings and that is how I explain the renaissance which is taking place now: theatre, movies, novels and a biography [of Babel]... It’s very comforting to know that that man has survived, so to speak, at least in spirit.” [Nathalie Babel]
