Overview

Nearly sixty years after the defeat of Nazism, some in Germany now feel that the Germans were the victims--not least of relentless attempts to remind them of past crimes.

Students of German history, politics and culture will find this contextualization of current victim discourse within a wider historical framework invaluable.
