Summary
In The Healing Wound, Sereny presents a vital historical account of Germany in the 20th century, exploring the guilt which is in many ways the legacy of Nazism. She argues that despite the achievements of Germany since 1945, the awareness of the horrors committed in their name remains in the minds of Germans to this day-an open wound of historical culpability. 32 photos. Few individuals have written about the evil forces of Hitler's Germany with the immediacy & urgency of Gitta Sereny. She first encountered the Nazis in 1934 at age eleven when she witnessed a Nuremberg rally, & in 1940 she was in Paris when the Blitzkrieg overran the Allied armies. In 1942, warned of impending arrest for having hidden British pilots, she fled across the Pyrenees. The Healing Wound combines political statement with the haunting personal memories of one of the twentieth century's most relentless witnesses
