frank01_400Hans Frank was the Nazi Governor-General of occupied Poland.  Hans Frank was responsible for overseeing the mass murder of four million human beings.  Three million Jews.  One million Poles.
 
Before the war Frank had been a leading attorney in Germany.  He became Hitler’s personal legal counsel.
 
Frank was a highly educated man.  He had committed to memory the entirety of Goethe’s Faust and most of Shakespeare’s plays.
 
While in charge in Poland, Frank kept a collection of stolen paintings by Renaissance masters, including Leonardo Di Vinci.
 
Of Di Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine, Frank remarked that “to look at this painting is to feel love.”
 
At the Nuremberg Trials Hans Frank was found guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity.  He was sentence to death.
 
Hans Frank was a loyal member of the Nazi Party.  He believed in the Fuhrer Principle; he loved Adolf Hitler.  Frank loved Hitler more than he loved his family.
 
Hans Frank was officially responsible for the mass murder of four million human beings.
 
Hans Frank was a highly educated man.  He could recite the entirety of Goethe’s Faust.
 
Niklas Frank, a son of Hans (but only a small boy during the Holocaust years) has publically denounced his father’s evil.  Niklas Frank has written that “when civil courage is lost, when democracy is lost, extermination camps become possible.  We know this.  We have done it.”

Indeed, confronted with that kind of monstrosity that reduces ethics to mere aesthetics and treats othes as objects,Levinas proceeds to challenge the whole ethical tradition of Western Civilization from Plato to Heidegger and to declare that it would have been preferable that certain "educated" men had never gone to school, they would have done less damage.
