A Story Like No Other - Dr. Merdinger
Dr. Merdinger story was a unique one for sure. He was one of the lucky ones who had lived through that time period. If it wasn't for his ability/usefulness to the germans and russians he might not have been able to continue his life past the war. Throughout the reading I began to wonder what was going on through his head at this time. Paranoia? Constantly knowing that the people you're working for are killing your race off would make many loose their minds. The thought of when will they turn on me would have ran throughout my head day in and day out. I'm sure the thought of poising the alcohol crossed through his mind but if he had done that it might have been the end of the road for him once the germans found out. He played it safe for the most part and did what he had to do to stay alive.
