This paper discusses Daniel Goldhagen's hotly debated and disputed book, "Hitler's Willing Executioners". The author illustrates how Goldhagen has offered a perspective that enlightens a misunderstood period in modern history, and claims that, through the understanding that this book gives, we can keep history from repeating itself.
From the Paper:"In his book, Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust, Daniel Goldhagen attempts to explain why the Holocaust happened. Central to his thesis is the notion that German citizens were essentially regular human beings, living conventional lives, with complex social relationships and family obligations, who also happened to be staffing police battalions, organizing death marches, working in concentration and slave labor camps and basically facilitating Hitler's overwhelmingly murderous plan."
