"The Reader", is a movie about an SS Concentration Camp guard.
But the movie is very careful to not to tell you that her trial went on for six years, in which it was revealed that she bashed the brains out of children against brick walls in the presence of their mothers.
It was also revealed she regularly and often stomped women to death with her boots.
Also she regularly whipped women to death.
Also we are not told she freely and knowingly chose to be a Concentration Camp guard. And if she had refused at any point she would not have been punished.
She was sentenced to life in prison. She did not commit suicide. And like all SS, she was not repentant.
This movie is a straight out white-wash - it is called historical revisionism.
