Inhaltsangabe: Told from the point of view of the executioner and in his voice The Kindly Ones evokes in graphic detail the horrors of Babi Yar, Stalingrad, Auschwitz, and the fall of Berlin in 1945. Massive in scope, horrific in subject matter and shocking in its protagonist, critiques have compared this provocative and controversial work of literature to Tolstoy's War and Peace.
Named one of the "100 Best Books of the Decade" by The Times of London
"Oh my human brothers, let me tell you how it happened."
A former Nazi officer, Dr. Maximilien Aue has reinvented himself, many years after the war, as a middle-class family man and factory owner in France. An intellectual steeped in philosophy, literature, and classical music, he is also a cold-blooded assassin and the consummate bureaucrat. Through the eyes of this cultivated yet monstrous man we experience in disturbingly precise detail the horrors of the Second World War and the Nazi genocide of the Jews. Eichmann, Himmler, Göring, Speer, Heydrich, Höss?even Hitler himself?play a role in Max's story. An intense and hallucinatory historical epic, The Kindly Ones is also a morally challenging read. It holds a mirror up to humanity?and the reader cannot look away.
