    Thank You for this excellent article. May be that Jonathan Little gave a more sophisticated answer to the question of the author, but he is not German. Howerver, I don't agree that the question put on the table could be answered proper if directed on "the German society" as a whole. Germany was a dictatorship in which only few people had power, free speech doesn't exist, and democrazy has declined even from 1930 on (since then it was a presidential dictatorship under Hindenburg). All in all, You won't get an answer about the responsibility of a "society" under dictatorship, but an answer about several groups in power who were able to do what they want and were able to find many people who like to join in for several reasons shown in the literature named by the author of this piece. The comparison to the state of Israel made by some somments is not only disgusting, but also totally wrong. Since the German society was clearly a dictatorship who everybody could be forced every day to do things he or she would never have done otherwise, Israel is a democrazy and everyone can speak out about his ideas without loosing jobs, dangering his relatives or be thrown in jail and so on.
