Bardzo solidny reportaż-dokument. Autorowi udało się przedstawić wiele faktów i jednocześnie pisać w sposób zajmujący. Dogłębna analiza osobowości SS-mana każe zastanowić się nad genezą powstania nazizmu, opowiadając tę historię przez pryzmat historii jednostki, trybie w tej nacjonalistycznej machinie.

This was a very good book to read. Kazimierz Moczarski had spent a time between March 2 and November 11, 1949, in one cell with Jürgen Stroop, a man who was commanding the destruction of Warsaw Ghetto in April 1943. Great insight in such a man's mind.
La vera 'banalità del male', esplorata anche meglio che nel celeberrimo libro della Arendt.
Nessuno, che io sappia, è mai andato così a fondo nella mente di un criminale. Un genocidario, in questo caso.
Un libro fondamentale.
