There were actually quite a few acts of kindness by Germans during the Holocaust.

One off the top of my head: Read (or watch) The Pianist. It’s an autobiographical work about a Polish Jewish man, Wladyslaw Szpilman, who hid throughout the whole war.

I don’t want to spoil the book but at some point his life is saved by a German Officer, who saved many others and for his troubles was sent to die in a gulag in Russia, even after the people he saved petitioned the USSR to free him and built a corpus of evidence to prove his acts.

I have a disease for the rest of my life and it can and has paralyzed and blinded me, not to mention the intense pain.

I personally also value choice in this matter but schizophrenia invokes a whole deeper layer of questions that’s nearly impossible to answer.

I live in an ex communist state and my impression of it is that it wasn’t very great.
