VON KELLENBACH, K.,
The Mark of Cain. Guilt and Denial in the Post-War Lives of Nazi Perpetrators.
Oxford University Press, 2013. 304p. Hardback. Katharina von Kellenbach's analysis is strong medicine. In this extensive case study she exposes the inability of rank and file Nazi perpetrators to confront their own responsibilities for the crimes they committed serving the Nazi cause. Their own words and denials become a modern day mark of Cain, warning future generations of the compounding power of personal, cultural, religious, and ideological identities to justify unspeakable violence to others.
