In this episode, Johannes Breit interviews historian Daniel Lee about his new book “The SS-Officer’s Armchair”. In his book Lee, a specialist on the history of Jews in France and North Africa, follows the trail of several documents found sewn into an armchair. Weaving together historical work with his own process of uncovering information about Robert Giesinger, mid-level German bureaucrat and owner of the papers, Lee crafts a gripping account about both the nature of Nazi perpetrators as well as a historian’s hunt for answers.
