The Terror of the Law: Judaism and International Institutions



The ‘politics’ of extermination cannot be represented on the political scene. It must be forgotten. The term fixed to the interminable must itself be forgotten, exterminated. For the nightmare would continue in the memory even of its end. Now, that the elimination of the forgotten must be forgotten in order to be accomplished testifies to the fact that the forgotten is always there. For it has never been there in any other way than forgotten, and its forgetting forgotten. (Lyotard 1990, 29)
