He wanted to understand why so many Germans had welcomed the Nazi Party, and whether they were they now humbled and wiser. Hagen interviewed nine people he had known before the war who represented a wide spectrum of German society--an SA officer, a businessman, a doctor, a socialite, a journalist, a professional soldier, an SS wife, a member of the Hitler Youth, and a mischling, or half Jew. Four were Nazis, three were collaborators, and two were anti-Nazi. How could the Baroness sent to Theriesenstadt concentration camp hold salons for ex-Nazis after the war? The very fact that none of these people was a high-ranking Nazi official or a survivor of the Holocaust provides an insight into the Third Reich that is a revelation even for those who know this period of history intimately.
