“Perpetrators or Victims? Understanding the Hitler Youth Generation” Presentation notes and PowerPoint

Talking of his SS involvement, Grass states he lived in a “recurrent sense of shame” (Scham verschweigen), and no matter what he did the “burden remained” (doch die Last blieb), while “no-one could alleviate it” (niemand konnte sie erleichtern).

— Gunter Grass, Beim Häuten Der Zwiebel (Peeling an Onion), p. 127
