Jennifer – yes, I think that’s a big part of it. I can understand wanting to portray war and the rise of fascism as something that people get swept up in and can do nothing to stop, but I also wonder whether part of the reason for Werner’s passiveness, at least, was that the author didn’t want to make him seem in any way complicit in the actions of the Nazis? So he just drifted along with things, for the most part.
