How this book helped me.

I thought "Legacy of Silence" was a well written book with countless amounts of information. I read it after it was recommended by a Holocaust researcher, while I was doing a report on the Holocaust for school. During the course of my research I read several books and interviewed a Holocaust survivor. "Legacy of Silence" was without question the most helpful of the books I read. "Legacy of Silence" gives the reader a unique insight to the personal lives of Nazi leaders and the inablility of their children to cope with their parents crimes. On many of the book's stories the children seem to recall almost pleasantly the activities of their parents. In my opinion it shows how, while the children of Holocaust survivors actively attempt to understand what their parents went through, the children of the perpetraters try to avoid dealing with their parents sins. I read "Legacy of Silence" shortly after my interview with a survivor. That interview along with "Legacy of Silence" and many other pieces of information have caused me to educate myself on the Holocaust even now that my paper has long since been completed. As a younger American I am trying to understand what happened during that horrible period of human history. If you are like me and want to learn more than what is in the Encyclopedia. Then I encourage you to read "Legacy of Silence".
