You are right about several things. I do make a lot of assumptions. I don't know if my host was representative. My host may have been more conflicted.
But there are a few things that are more solid: most Germans at that time were by-standers. They didn't attempt to either stop the killings or help the victims—death. Nevertheless, a moral judgment can be made. Those who acted altruistically were heroes and have been honored as such in Israel. Conversely, those who didn't act can be judged as morally wanting or worse.
