An excellent and compelling read, difficult to put down. The book presents a series of interviews with children of WWII perpetrators about their fathers and their lives. As the author relates, "I went to Germany to learn about the effect of the Holocaust on the children of its perpetrators. As an Israeli, I know that, aside from a number tattooed on an arm, there are few external signs identifying survivors or their children. As someone once pointed out to me, "We are all playing the game of trying to look normal." Yet in Germany, I discovered that I was looking for some sign in my interviewees-- a "working through process." I felt "at home" when I discovered it and upset when I could not. This book is as much about the author as the children. As this book was published in 1989, these "children" are probably now in their eighties on average. A similar look at grandchildren of perpetrators would be highly interesting.
