In his new book, "The Nazi and the Psychiatrist" Jack El-Hai chronicles US army psychiatrist Douglas M Kelley's unique relationship Hermann Göring and other leading Nazis. Douglas was tasked with assessing whether 22 leading Nazis were mentally fit to stand trial in the run-up to the Nuremberg Trials. In a quick mobile video interview I asked El-Hai what was the most fascinating, or surprising thing he discovered while researching the book, if there was such a thing as a "Nazi mind" or if he Nazis in question shared common traits that separated them from other people and if there is anything we can learn from Douglas' work to help prevent similar atrocities in the future.
