Crabwalk - Günter Grass, Krishna Winston Sobering historical fiction that examines the complex lingering impacts of Germany's experience as both aggressor in Europe and victim of Soviet atrocities during WWII. The book explores the reactions of 3 generations of one family affected by the sinking of the Gustloff, in which thousands, mainly, though not exclusively, civilian refugees, died in the Baltic after the ship was torpedoed by a Soviet sub. The event was hushed up by both sides at the time, and little discussed after the war, leaving the incident as potential polemical fuel for resurgent Neo-fascist sentiment.
