True, all too true,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin) (Taschenbuch)
Arendt explores the man who superficially seems to be the mastermind of the death of countless Jews and other undesireables. However, Arendt examines the "banality" of evil, thus concluding that neither Eichmann nor the Germans were entirely responsible for these attrocities, instead, she spreads the guilt to others as well (including the Jewish communities that cooperated with the Nazi authorities, much to the disgust of many Jews). Her intelligent argument points out that the Holocaust was not a phenomenon that can only be ascribed to the immensely evil Eichmann or German people because they were passive sheep who either pretended not to notice the attrocities or actively cooperated and shed their guilt by believing the huge lies from the Nazi state and propaganda machine. This may lead the reader to the conclusion that many other societies are not immune to the stupefaction that the Germans underwent during the Third Reich. Third Reich Germany may seem to many an ethereal and ghoulish nightmare, seperated from our world by eons but it is not. How do you like them apples mate?
