Tales about an adulterous wife who leaves her husband for the chief of police, a woman suffering the ating effects of a stroke, a young girl trying out for the gymnastics team are all distorted by the fact that they take place in Nazi Germany. Hershman allows only swift glimpses of the increasing violence against the Jews-the police roundups, the shop closings, the sirens in the night, resettlment, and forced labor as seen through the uncritical eyes of Kreiswald's Aryan citizens.
Marcie Hershman's haunting Tales of the Master Race circles the streets of Kreiswald, an imaginary town in Germany, during the crucial years of the Third Reich. It takes us inside the lives of "ordinary" German citizens-Aryan men and women-marking the subtle and more overt alterations brought about by the Nazi regime.

Hershman's portrait and-in effect-indictment of Kreiswald, a town small enough so that most people know one another, is made up of individual stories, with a cast of common characters who increasingly behave as if & and murder were to be tolerated. It entered our lives assiduously, like a whiff of perfume, seducing innocent and intelligent alike; by the end, caught lying with it under our soiled flag, we all stank.

The earliest is Marcie Hershman (American, Tales of the Master Race, 1991), followed by Gila Lustiger (GermanJewish, Die Bestandsaufnahme, 1995, published in English as The Inventory,. 2001) and Rachel Seiffert (British, The Dark Room, 2001). Although only Lustiger is the child of a survivor, all may be counted in the ranks of the second, or even third generation, who strive, each in their way, to recreate the daytoday workings of society in the lives of ordinary folk under the Third Reich, to pose once again that allconsuming question: How could it have happened?
