    I have his "The Girl who Saved the King of Sweden" on my 'to read' pile of books.

    You may have read it, but if you like the above, I also enjoyed "A man called Ove" by Fredrick Backman.

    Default A snapshot of Germany's national project, 1933-1945

    Goldhagen: Hitler's Willing Executioners - Ordinary Germans & the Holocaust, Abacus books, 1997 >>> Received with utter fury in sone quarters, its author vilified for setting the genocide of the war years in the totality of German history. Goldhagen dismisses the usual excuse that the Holocaust was down to the unfortunate collison between economic recession and a freakish abberation of Germany's national psyche known to us as National Socialism. Germany's desire to 'solve' the Jewish Question goes back much further and deeper than the years 1933 - 1945.
