16. I read a book called...
The Nazi Conscience by Claudia Koonz. It is a very good read, and deals with the psychological/sociological factors of germany at the time.

Interestingly, there were many who joined the NSDAP because it was far easier to get a job. It was easier to avoid persecution as well.

it is fascinating to see how a remarkably civilized nation could slip into such depravity, and it is a warning of just how low we, as humans, can go.

If you get the chance, see if your library has the book, most likely, you won't be disappointed, it was an eye-opener for me.
