Michael’s KZ Visit

Why did Michael visit the camp of Natzweiler-Struthof? What was the result?

Michael visits the concentration camp, Natzweiler-Struthof, because he wants to understand why people were able to commit such horrific acts. He also would like to realize how killing can be a passion.

When he arrives, he describes the camp, thinking that it is just as good as a toboggan run for children. Michael tries to imagine how this camp had looked filled with life, but he cannot. He feels shameful failure and thinks how to feel after such a visit as he leaves the concentration camp at night. He felt a great emptiness and desire to understand Hanna’s actions and judge them. Michael is in conflict with himself and does not know what to think.
