Quotation of the Day for December 22, 2010
"In the first days of the war I had applied for a visa and permission to enlist in the British Army, it had been refused. When I was released from Vernet, I made a new application; it was turned down again. Meanwhile, England had proceeded, imitating the French example, to the wholesale internment of political refugees. Even should I succeed in getting out of France and crossing the Channel, I would be put behind barbed wire again. Anti-fascists were obviously a great nuisance in a war against fascism."
- Arthur Koestler, in his book Scum of the Earth, recalling his difficulties in enlisting in any army during the Second World War.
