"We were all hellishly uncomfortable, suspended in no man’s land, but at least we did not have to regard ourselves as completely fallen angels. I remained in that state of suspended animation until the day when the swastika was hoisted on Moscow Airport in honor of Ribbentrop’s arrival and the Red Army band broke into the Horst Wessel Lied. That was the end; from then onward I no longer cared whether Hitler’s allies called me a counter-revolutionary."

Arthur Koestler, from his essay in The God That Failed (1949)
