This chapter examines the inability of the majority of Germans to show remorse or shame right after the war from the perspective of physicists. Helplessness before the scale of the Nazi atrocities and the enormity of the collective guilt expressed itself in defensive listlessness and lethargy.

Keywords:   Nazi atrocities, collective guilt, shame, listlessness, lethargy
