Die Täter sind unter uns: Über das Schönreden der SED-Diktatur
Die Täter sind unter uns: Über das Schönreden der SED-Diktatur ("The perpetrators are among us: On the euphemisation of the SED dictatorship") is a widely acclaimed non-fiction book by historian Hubertus Knabe, published in German by Propyläen in 2007. It deals with the legacy of the totalitarian communist dictatorship in East Germany, the lack of punishment for many communist perpetrators, and the whitewashing of the communist regime particularly by the successor of the communist party ("The Left"). Knabe shows how human rights were systematically violated by the communist regime, and attacks the so-called Ostalgie, that is, tendencies to romanticize the life in the communist dictatorship.
