As I read and study history to glean insight into how ordinary citizens become willing participants in a war effort, I discovered The Auschwitz Album.
One passage from the book, published in 1981
, on page 137 offered a very interesting observation from one of the very few who escaped. "he learned more about the 'real purpose' of the camp... What most appalled him was the 'cold blooded commercialism of the place.'"
So, the debate has many facets about how Nazi plans for world dominion was supported on a daily basis.
