The fear of German contemporary historians to depict the 2nd World War as one unleashed simultaneously by two dictators and to study the Janus-faced period before the German-Soviet War is clearly due to political considerations and amounts to a self-imposed prohibition on research and understanding.

Günther Gillessen, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 10.10.1995, p. 11


When we enter into a dialog with another we bring along some essential, non-negotiable things. Among them are freedom of speech - and more than anything that no-one come to harm on account of his convictions. A long, many-times bloody and gruesome history has taught us in Europe that these rights are no longer in dispute.

Federal President Roman Herzog, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 16.10.1995


The free society may not choke nor suppress the free exchange of ideas and standpoints. [...]

The mode of operation of the Federal Oversight Office for Youth-Endangering Writings is scarcely consistent with the principles of a free society since in an open society the written and the spoken word must not be made subject to censorship. [...]

The Federal Oversight Office has proven itself in many respects to be the gateway of a one-sided anti-fascism.

Eckhard Jesse in: Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (ed.), Verfassungsschutz in der Demokratie, Carl Heymanns Verlag, Köln 1990, pp. 287, 303, 304

Totalitarian systems willingly falsify history in the sense favorable to themselves.
