Siegfried

by Harry Mulisch

Can fiction make greater sense of evil than philosophy or history? Writer Rudolf Herter thinks so before he meets two of Hitler's past servants. You'll read this like a disturbing thriller. But be warned: you'll also need to grapple with Nietzsche and Schopenhauer!

Extract

In the course of time, ... countless experts had racked their brains over the question of when Adolf became Hitler. First he was an innocent infant, then a delightful toddler, then a growing child, then a young man eager to learn - where, when, how, as a result of what had he changed into absolute terror? No one had yet given a satisfactory answer. Why not?
Translated by Paul Vincent
