One thought on “The German Mujahid by Boualem Sansal

  1. The German Mujahid is my favorite novel out of the 2010-11 Sakura Medal selection. It is basically a collection of entries from two journals belonging to Rachel and Malrich, who are brothers. Both go through the same life-changing experiences where they find out their father’s past as a Gestapo officer during the Holocaust, and question how much their fathers’ identity should identify themselves as individuals. I thought the way the two brothers reacted to the truth differently was really intriguing, and the way the author compares the Islamic Fundamentalism with the Nazism was interesting as well.
