“The Temptation of Despair” was a book that I probably would not have chosen on my own, but I’m so glad I’ve had the opportunity to read it. I’ve never paid much thought to the topic [Germany after WWII], but it helps me to remember and notice how petty my problems may seem when compared to the suffering and poverty so many others have been through. If my worst problem is being stuck in a cell, then I guess to others, it seems like I’m doing pretty alright. Thanks for all the help you provide us to learn and hopefully expand our mind to new and different culture and studies.
