A Boy in Berlin

A thirteen year-old boy in Berlin after the war was nearing the conclusion of an interrogation process, during which he was told that everything of the world he had been a part of during his entire lifetime was false. 

 

He had been tricked by satanic forces and nothing he had counted as true could be retained or trusted: all was a lie of propaganda. 

 

At the conclusion of the interrogation process an American sergeant asked the young boy if he had any questions. 

 

Forming one of the most poignant questions in modern German history, the young boy asked, "What do I believe in now?"

 

There was no answer then. . . nor has there been to this day.
