The German Historical Museum opened a new exhibit on October 15, Hitler and the Germans: Nation and Crime. From the website–the exhibit seeks to answer the questions: How was Hitler’s rise possible? How could Hitler and National Socialism, which were responsible for war, crimes and genocide, count on widespread acceptance by German society until the very end? Why were so many Germans willing to align their conduct with the “Führer” and thus actively support the Nazi dictatorship?
The New York Times provides an in-depth look at the exhibit in this article by Michael Slackman.
