Question for readers of The Kindly Ones

On each Friday for the next two months we will be posting a question for readers of The Kindly Ones. We welcome your responses to each question.

Today’s question:

Bernhard Schlink’s internationally bestselling novel, The Reader, spoke to the question of guilt among Germans—especially the second generation, the children of the war and the Holocaust. If you have read the book or seen the movie, what insights did it offer you about the ordinary Germans who perpetrated these crimes? How might that influence how you approach a book like The Kindly Ones?
