"Look Who´s Back", by Timur Vermes

Look Who's BackLook Who's Back by Timur Vermes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Hitler's rise to power is usually study as an incomprehensible in a nation like Germany. Although it happened in the middle of the Great Depression, it is not fully understood how an advanced and cult people could be dragged to an spiral of terror and war. But could it happened again? Answering this question is one of the main reasons to open the book "Look who´s back !", which starting point is the reappearance of Hitler in Berlin in the year 2011.

At first sight, those who fear a resurge of fascism and racism in Europe could be soothed by the reaction of the German people. Hitler is seen as humorous element more appropriate for late-night TV shows that for mainstream politics. Nevertheless, the thoughts of the Fuhrer concerning the elements of our modern society should awake doubts among us. His ideas about how he could have used TV or Internet in his rise to power in the 30´s show us that we are more vulnerable than ever to the creation of a totalitarian state.

A book with different interpretations, not all of them pleasant.
