Kelly's Book Log: Ordinary Men by Christopher R. Browning
The Einsatzgruppen were only the thin cutting edge of German units that became involved in political and racial mass murder in Russia.
For Remembrance Day I am reading this book. It puts the WW II sacrifice into stark context. I confess I saw it on Netflix first. It was difficult to watch. Then I bought the book. Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battallion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland, asks an extremely important question—how do ordinary people become mass murderers? The answers are chilling and staggering. An important book. #fridayreads
