“It is impossible to pray for the dead if you do not know their names.”

“The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million” Daniel Mendelsohn
If you want to make the world a better place through your actions, you must know the person or people with whom you are making a change. Relationships that matter, are individual and personal. (even: “know your enemy” — or you may never understand how to protect yourself from them)

memoirs are everywhere, particularly ones with detailed personal content — is it that we find that it’s now OK to be voyeurs, or are we all trying to establish some personal contact with someone else, regardless of the distance in culture or time ?
