Personal Quote:

I think the most important thing for Americans [to understand] is that this genocide is American history. The U.S. helped engineer the whole killing machine and supported the military dictatorship for decades. We have to do exactly the same work that the Indonesians have to do. We have to declassify our documents, acknowledge what we've done and take responsibility for it. [2016] See more »

Trivia:

His paternal grandfather came from Frankfurt, Germany and his grandmother from Berlin. His grandfather had left Germany before Hitler came to power and was studying in the US. He returned there and was able to rescue some family members, but most of the Oppenheimers were wiped out in the Holocaust. See more »
