‘Only that historian will have the gift of fanning the spark of hope in the past, who is firmly convinced that even the dead will not be safe from the enemy if he wins. And this enemy has not ceased to be victorious. ’ —Walter Benjamin, in ‘Theses on History’ quoted by Seamus Deane in ‘Muffling the Cry from a Hungry Past’, The Guardian (17 June 1995) p. 29.
