How interesting. I have read all of WG Sebald's work (except the poetry) and find his exploration of the post-Nazi German mindset perplexing.
I wonder how much of the groupthink came from an (almost) homogeneous society (or is that a myth). Its difficult to imagine living somewhere where everyone is so alike. The power of Primo Levi derailed me for some years on the holocaust.
I have bought a few books for my children which they have enjoyed about the holocaust, 'Once' by Morris Gleitzman and 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' by John Boyne. My son, about 10 at the time loved 'Once' and didnt seem frightened. Just asked lots of questions.
