- Lying to Ourselves About the Air War
Resource Type: Article
Most US citizens have never been subjected to an air raid. They have never heard the roar of planes flying high above them while an air raid siren wails, its whine competing with the planes roar and piercing the audio centers of the brain making sequential thought difficult if not impossible. Nor have they heard the sound of bombs canisters filled with high explosives and fire whistling as they fall through the air toward their targets on the ground. Nor have most US citizens ever sat in a bomb shelter wondering if their homes will survive the aerial assault they are hoping to survive themselves.

Resource Type: Book
Sebald's subject matter is memory and its uncertain connection to the past. In this non-fiction work he turns his attention to the German homefront experience of the Second World War. He questions the postwar push to look to the future and ignore the past. He critiques the silence of German writers who were incapable of writing realistically about their own experiences or worse, who refurbished their own pasts. In his book he attempts to "cast some light on the way in which individual, collective and cultural memory deals with experiences exceeding what is tolerable".
