Kurt Vonnegut: The Bombing of Dresden

“You guys burnt the place down, turned it into a single column of flame. More people died there in the firestorm, in that one big flame.. than died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined.”

American writer Kurt Vonnegut was best known for his book Slaughterhouse-Five, or The Children’s Crusade: A Duty-Dance with Death (1969), which is a satirical novel about World War II experiences and journeys through time of a soldier named Billy Pilgrim. Vonnegut’s use of the firebombing of Dresden as a central event makes the novel semi-autobiographical, as he was present during the bombing. It changed his life forever. Here is a speaking appearance in 1997 where he discusses this topic.
