Hitler Boys in America Schmidt—The author of SS Panzergrenadier examines the Allies' postwar attempt to destroy the German soul in this remarkable case study. Two young Germans, both Hitler Youth members, immigrated to the U.S. shortly after WWII. Each published writings about his experiences in Hitler's Germany, yet their perspectives differ radically. The reason? One was subjected to the post-war "re-education" of the German people, while the other managed to escape it. A close-up view of the devastating effects of the "de-Nazification" of the Germans, a program the author describes as "the determined attempt to remove all vestiges of pride in their own nation and culture of this now defenseless people." If anything can rightly be called genocide, this is it. 319p-hc
