These manifestations of anti-Semitism in Germany are deeply linked to the German past from to and the wish to get rid of guilt or responsibility for dealing with that past.

Catastrophe and Identity in Post-War German Literature by Aaron Horton The purpose of this study is to examine selected German literature dealing with issues of history and identity in light of the catastrophic reshaping of society after World War II and reunification.
In my own research, I have found that many of my countrymen believe that there is in fact an abundance of literature written by German gentiles which deals with the plight of European Jews in general and German Jews in particular.
