The ability to exercise [moral] choice does not require perfect knowledge; it is enough to possess a basic ethical code in order to judge behaviour. It was not necessary to be aware of gas chambers in Auschwitz in order to see that German Jews - the neighbourhood tailors, doctors, shopkeepers ansd lawyers, once trusted members od society - were being treated systematically like animals. Nor did it take much political sophistication to see that Nazi leaders were enriching themselves, that institutions were being corrupted.

The central question is why this information was cast aside.
