Quote: The Breakdown of Social Norms under Adversity

“It was difficult to be the first to decide to behave immorally, but once that was being done by other citizens, immoral acts did not seem so terrible.”  – Sergey Yarov, Leningrad 1941-1942: Morality in a City Under Siege.

cf. Primo Levi and Elie Weisel.
