Zvi Rex is an Israeli psychoanalyst mentioned in a book by the German journalist Henryk Broder. He does not seem to be mentioned anywhere else, or for anything else than this quote, and one wonders whether the name may be a pseudonym, or else made up by the journalist.
- The Germans will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz.
- The precise context and original date of the quote are not clear, but it is often associated with Theodor Adorno's analysis of a "secondary antisemitism", often explained as an antisemitism not despite of but because of Auschwitz. The quote first appeared in Henryk M. Broder's 1986 book Der ewige Antisemit: Über Sinn und Funktion eines beständigen Gefühls.
