  6. On the Natural History of Destruction
    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 2003
    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".
  7. The Bombing of Civilians in World War II
    Resource Type: Article
    Is the deliberate mass murder of civilians on a huge scale ever justified? This article does not have an answer for this question. However, it is important to note that this was a very specific goal of England and America in World War II as the quotes above show. Germany and Japan also bombed civilians but the scale of what they did was a tiny fraction of their opponents. More people died in the bombing of Hamburg alone that in the entire German bombing campaign against England. Was the Anglo-American bombing necessary or moral? Many serious military experts feel it was a poor choice in terms of military priorities. What follows is documentation from both sides.
