Reprint. This translation originally published: London: Hamish Hamilton, 2003.

In the last years of World War II, the Allies dropped a million bombs on Germany.

Yet the German people have been silent about the resulting devestation and loss of life, failing to recognise the terrible shadow that destruction from the air cast over their land.

Here W.G. Sebald asks why it is we turn our backs on the horrors of war, and in addressing our response to the past, offers insights into how we live now.
