Second Hand & Rare Books

Gitta Sereny is one of the world's most respected journalists and historians. This book gathers together her writing on Germany. It amounts to a portrait of the country and its people, how they have come to terms with their Nazi past, both collectively and in specific instances - and how the burden of their guilt has altered the national identity.
