Melita Maschmann's 'Account Rendered'

Melita Maschmann's 'Account Rendered' : The New Yorker: "“I give her credit for having the courage to write and publish ‘Fazit’ at the time she did. In 1963, nobody I met admitted to having been a Nazi. She may have been the first German, and certainly the first German woman, who tried to face her past with honesty. No other book at that time said, unequivocally, ‘I was a Nazi, and here’s why.’ I am certainly treated well in her memoir, with insight and respect. Melita eventually came to be horrified by Nazism, and I believe she really meant the book as an apology.” Melita Maschmann died in Germany in 2010, after suffering for over a decade from Alzheimer’s. She never married and had no children."
