The Historian

“For all his attention to my historical education, my father had neglected to tell me that history’s terrible moments were real.  I understand now, decades later, that he  could have never told me.  Only history itself can convince you of the truth.  And once you’ve seen the truth — really seen it — you can’t look away.”

from The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova pg. 37
