"Killing Nazis" is a story that is extremely topical and seems relevant at first, in regard to the recent surge of Neonazism in Greece and the subsequent anti-fascist struggles that are taking place. However, the story unfolds above and beyond these phenomena.
The protagonist, a painter, lives inside a virtual "prison" constructed around his need to protect his special talent. This prison has been gradually re-inforced by his upbringing, the most important role in which is played by his grandmother. Whatever door was there to help him find the exit out of that prison, is shut by the hatred she has instilled in him, and his own insistence has thrown away the key.
In this universe, the only way out seems to be violence, which erupts, steadily at first, but like a volcano, at the end, liberating him.
"Killing Nazis" should not be read as an ideological war, per se, but rather, as one man's battle to find meaning in his life - or as one desperate attempt, to escape from the shackles of his mental prison. Unfortunately, this prison is his own mind and sanity seems to be the price he has to pay, in order to be free.
Plot-wise, the story twists and turns surprising the reader again and again. It's an interesting story, well told, so it's definitely worth your time.
