The German Comedy: Scenes of Life After the Wall

The author argues that the real fear about the new Germany is not the rise of neo-Nazism, but of a cult of righteousness, with its concomitant mistrust of foreigners and especially the threat of the creation of a moral vacuum for a nation so intent on forgetting the ghosts that haunt its past.
