Born Guilty Children of Nazi Families

Ted guiltWhat did they really know about their parents' wartime activities and how did they find out More deeply how did they react as suspicions hardened into certain knowledge with rejection understanding or confusion Guilty Children of PDF #10003 And how will they transmit this knowledge to their own childrenPeter Sichrovsky a distinguished Austrian journalist whose widely acclaimed Strangers in The. In this thin book carried a very heavy past First time I get to know how these next generation of Nazi officers we usually focus on war victims but we forgot that these people in the books are also victims victims from the crimes that were not commit by themselvesSome refused to talk about it so refuse to admit they had such parents as Jews murderers So just openly stood against their own parents lived with guiltI think we need to remind ourselves about this very dark period of time not just WWII Same mass murders still happening in small or big scales We need to drag ourselves our of the mud of accusing who is to blame the point in how failed the humanity and how we lost the rationality I look back at what happened in Taiwan in China in most Asian countries Japanese government still refused Nan kin Massacre ever happened China refused to admitted Mao was a mass murderer in Taiwan same people throwing mud each year about how KMT killed innocent people but not looking at the way to heal the wound of past should be than that Facing the mistakes of past discussing in depth to understand why the background and environment at that time caused people behaved certain ways Burying the past without talking about it or facing the truth won t help the humanity on the contrary we might repeat the same mistakes if war happen again I am glad such a book was written and specially written by a Jewish bravobelow are some paragraphs i found worth keeping for myself 1930 1933

read Born Guilty Children of Nazi Families

Ir Own Land sensitively portrayed the lives of the children of Jewish victims living in Germany and Austria today here turns his attention to the children of the perpetrators His penetrating and often moving interviews with the sons and daughters of Nazis some famous some not convey perhaps as never before the painful struggle to accept and come to terms with the terrible burden of their parents' guilt. It is interesting reading about the anecdotes of children of Nazi facing the moral dilemma of having parents who possibly committed war crimes but I wish there s a conclusive ending or at least some insight provided at the ending It s like reading a research paper that has no thesis or conclusion

    To achieve the best torturing effect try reading it with psychoanalysis lenses on Someone should do a similar study like Children of Social Trauma along this line The conclusion could be pretty bitter and rob one of moral superiority every party is genuinely suffering in one way or anotherI was wrong to claim it doesn't have English translation though The name is Born Guilty I tried to combine the editions but it seems like I ca
