He was ready for introspection into this devastating period. As a child of the anti-Zionist East Germany, he may have received even less education about the Holocaust than his Western counterparts.The film dramatized how Weidt bribed Gestapo officers to prevent them from deporting his Jewish workers.You’ll allow Muslim antisemites into your land as compensation for the Holocaust.” Whereas once he couldn’t take his hands off me, he froze in the corner of the sofa, curled up. “You can’t generalize,” he said with stereotypical German stoicism. ” JUST WHEN I thought he would hold me, because I was crying, he sunk further into the corner and looked straight at me, his grayish-blue eyes turning cold and mean. Perpetrators and their descendants are also affected, but more subliminally.“That’s not to say all Muslims are antisemites, but antisemitism can be found in the Koran,” I countered.
