Simon Wiesenthal's silence not only serves as its own indictment against the Nazi genocide, but it is the only possible way he can respond ethically to acknowledge the family burned alive at Dnepropetrovsk. In May 2003, Dragan Obrenovic signed a confession at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) detailing the measure of his responsibility for the commission of war crimes in Srebrenica in 1995. Silence and denial protect one for a time from having to address one's actions, from having to address the suffering that one has caused, from having to address the damage one has done in the destruction of the Other. The perpetrator becomes Other. As the perpetrator attempts to silence the victim, so the system of corporal punishment seeks to silence the perpetrator, or to determine beforehand what Emmanuel Levinas will say.
