Divided Memory: The Nazi Past in the Two Germanys by Jeffrey Herf, 527 pages, read by Kim, on 06/05/2013

There is a lot of dry information in this book, but  if you want to get a feel for how West and East Germany handled the difficulties that presented themselves in the decades after surrendering in WWII, especially how they dealt with the memory of the Holocaust and their relationship with the Jewish faction of the population, it is very interesting and very meaningful especially to the amateur Holocaust scholar.
