  • Abstract: Beginning with his trip to Germany in 1936, then in the Lettres à un ami allemand, Camus speaks of his disgust for Nazism. During the Occupation, he develops his rebellious thought and insists, in Combat, on the truth to be used to fight the lies entailed by every form of totalitarianism. He talks about the camps and the extermination of the Jews, and criticizes Ernst Jünger for his support of the Nazi ideology. Among his readings, we pause to examine Jakob Wassermann and the idea of justice in particular and Thomas Mann and the idea of humanism.
