For large parts of American culture today, Hitler’s evil has been completely naturalized. 9 The reason for these constant references, I believe, is that drawing on Hitler as the established personification 42 The Epitome of Evil of evil seems to allow giving concrete meaning to the rather vague concept of evil. It is out of question, this reasoning implies, that Hitler represents evil. And it is for this reason that comparisons, analogies, and associations between Hitler and other figures work to cast these other figures as evil.

In a similar vein, Martin Dibner’s A God for Tomorrow (1961) dismisses the idea that Nazism might resurface in Germany. In fact, through the development of its protagonist, Cooper, the novel dramatizes conflicting attitudes about Germany and the Germans and consciously works to reverse the position of those who still harbor prejudices. At the beginning of the story, Cooper, a war veteran turned photojournalist, still believes in the concept of collective guilt, feeling that it “was comforting to be anything but a German” (19).

While this constituted the top answer—a smaller number of people were content to blame Nazi leaders and the German people’s tendency to be seduced by them—the poll results also indicate that, despite all propaganda efforts, public opinion never turned as completely against the German population as it turned against the Japanese. As far as Germany was concerned, many Americans continued to blame Hitler and a small group of Nazi leaders. And in fact, films and novels largely continued to focus on a small group of Nazi leaders around Hitler, thus contributing to their mystification as superhuman villains and paving the way for the eventual transformation of these figures into tropes of absolute evil.
