To Look a Nazi in the Eye: A Teen's Account of a War Criminal Trial by Kathy Kacer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
To Look a Nazi in the Eye was a pretty intense book. I have always devoured books on the Holocaust, but there is a different tone to books like this one. While this book is about the Holocaust, it is more about the question of how culpable were all of the SS. Is the soldier who handled luggage off the cattle cars just as responsible for what happened as the guards forcing people into the gas chambers? This book goes through the war trial of one of the SS soldiers, asking how culpable was he, and how do you handle a trial where the events happened decades earlier.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
