Die Unfähigkeit Zu Trauern. Grundlagen Kollektiven Verhaltens Quotes (showing 1-1 of 1)
“Germans adored Hitler; they invested their own egos in him and, after the war, they were unable to acknowledge the inhumanity of his ideals or their horrifying consequences.
They understand the defence against remembering the criminal and horrific events as a self-protective repudiation of a melancholia that would have set in absolutely inevitably if Germans had truly confronted their bond with Hitler and their burden of guilt.
Through the omnipotently manifesting narcissism and National Socialist ideals, fellow humanity and the capacity for empathy with the victims were expelled from the self and destroyed.”
Alexander Mitscherlich, The Inability to Mourn: Principles of Collective Behavior
