Psychology

Some aspects of the Holocaust lore can only be understood, or at least approached in a clearer light, when one considers the psychological background of the people and the times involved. Wartime, with its disasters, propaganda efforts and widespread desperation and anxiety, is a breeding ground for rumors and exaggerations, propagated both through deliberate disinformation and common credulity. Add to this the group dynamics on all sides of this controversy: the warring enemies of yore, the perpetrators – whatever their deeds – the victims, and the postwar scholars, both revisionist and orthodox, all caught in their own psychological box.
