Robert G. Moeller powerfully conveys the complex tale of ways West Germans recast the new previous after the second one international battle. He rejects previous characterizations of a postwar West Germany ruled through attitudes of "forgetting" or silence concerning the Nazi earlier. He as an alternative demonstrates the "selective remembering" that came about between West Germans throughout the postwar years: particularly, they remembered crimes dedicated opposed to Germans, crimes that—according to a couple modern accounts—were reminiscent of the crimes of Germans opposed to Jews. Moeller attracts on a variety of U.S. and German govt files, political debates, movie files, letters, oral histories, and newspaper accounts.
