Shelves: world-war-two , holocaust Perhaps the definition of a worthy book about the Holocaust is that it leaves you asking more questions than it answers. That, ultimately, it is unsatisfactory. Satisfaction, after all, allows one to move on. The author of Into the Darkness conducts a series of interviews with Franz Stangl, the kommandant of Treblinka and various people who knew him, including one Jewish man who survived the death camp.

Before the Anschluss Stangl was a policeman in Austria. When the Germans arrived he was on a Perhaps the definition of a worthy book about the Holocaust is that it leaves you asking more questions than it answers. When the Germans arrived he was on a Gestapo hitlist for his part in the arrest of an influential Austrian Nazi. Unlike a couple of his fellow policemen on the list who were murdered he escaped by dubiously being backdated as a Nazi member.

Hardly the most suitable CV for a death camp commandant. It remains a mystery why he was chosen for the post. How he managed to escape trial until Is another mystery. He was living in Brazil, registered under his real name with the Austrian embassy and the Brazilian authorities. Anyone could have found him in twenty four hours. From to he enjoyed what his wife called the best years of his life. She, though patently an ambitious woman, was less of a Nazi than most of her neighbours and her sister married a Jew after the war.

Both husband and wife attributed the establishment of the state of Israel to the Holocaust. You could imagine the husband coming up with similar outrageously callow justifications as he watched the trains arrive at Treblinka. The book also studies the role the Vatican played in helping former Nazis to escape. Mostly German priests. This is how Stangl escaped.

Perhaps the most horrifying conclusion one draws from reading this is that, yes, the Holocaust could happen again because fundamentally decent people in normal times can be persuaded to do unthinkably grotesque things in times of madness. A mild mannered eye surgeon and his sophisticated British wife with Princess Diana aspirations become under stress a mass murderer and his supportive female consort.
