Born Guilty: Children Of Nazi Families
Born Guilty: Children Of Nazi Families
By Peter Sichrovsky
Basic Books, 1988, 178 pp.

Interviews with children of Nazi criminals: different reactions to the-usually late and accidental-discovery of parental culpability and absence of remorse. "My generation is the generation of the bad conscience." Responses range from filial anger to filial loyalty, but almost always tell of a disturbed and often uncomprehending existence of permanent unease. Poignant, minor raw material concerning some of the most troublesome issues of the Nazi past.
