They Thought They Were FreeSubmitted by plunix on Wed, 03/05/2008 - 14:47
This book is a disturbing account of the German people from 1933-1945. I could barely put this book down once I picked it up -- it's amazing. The author spent a year in a small German town around 1950 and talked to many people who had lived under the Nazis. The main thread of the book is the story of 10 of his friends who had been lower-level Nazis. This book is extremely important for understanding how governments like Hitler's can come into power --because the people do not oppose them -- and a very real reminder that we need to keep up the fight. Those of us who recognize the common threads of apathy and blind faith in government in this country will notice many parallels. Be encouraged: (pre-)Nazi Germany did not have Ron Paul or his freedom-loving supporters, we do, so keep up the fight in the coming days, months, years, and decades!
