Jerome D. Salinger, author and author of "The Catcher in the Rye," was a U.S. soldier and counterintelligence officer during World War II, and he was one of the first Americans to witness the full picture of the Nazi regime. He entered a German concentration camp in the spring of 1945 and saw an unimaginable horror: charred corpses, piles of charred corpses. He wrote: "The smell of burning human flesh remains in the nostrils and cannot be completely eliminated, no matter how long you live." Salinger's biographer described that the piles of naked corpses made Shalingjie unable to see. The corpses were piled up and piled up.
It seemed that they were all dead people. still alive. They found that some of the survivors were incredibly thin, with cheekbones so obvious that they looked company banner design like horns on their faces, and their carpal bones were bulging. Soldiers have seen too many tragic situations, and Sha Lingjie has experienced several fierce battles. It cannot be said that he is not experienced enough, but no matter how experienced soldiers are, they cannot but be intimidated by such tragic situations. US commander Dwight D. Eisenhower visited Buchenwald and Dachau concentration camps for the first time, and immediately invited photographers from around the world to record history. He summoned General Patton and the other generals and said, "You must have a look, because there will be a lot of people who don't believe in this kind of thing in the future."
Salinger was soon hospitalized in Nuremberg for post-traumatic stress disorder, and the last straw that overwhelmed him was what he saw in the concentration camps, and Europe was a Jewish cemetery. He was a savior and a victim, and his body, mind and spirit were devastated, and he could not recover for the rest of his life. This scene is also a sign that the United States and Europe parted ways. From now on, the United States no longer has to feel inferior in front of Europe, and no longer has to envy European culture, academics and wisdom. An important reason for Europe's fall was the adherence to the principle of "intellectual governance": Adolf Hitler's propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels was a Ph.D., Martin Heidegger and Carl Schmitt He was a university president or a university professor, and Hitler had too many PhDs in his cabinet; Joseph Stalin was also surrounded by experts majoring in "Marx-Lenin theology" and technocrats promoting a planned economy.
