Merkin muses:
• In a concentration camp,
"Would I have survived?
Would I have wanted to sur-
vive? If it happened now,
would any of the non-Jews I
know be willing to risk their
own lives in an attempt to
save me? How bad was the
smell?"
• "What did a Nazi think
about when he stood naked in
the shower?"
• As a teen and early adult,
her "flimsy, self-indulgent
despair" paled before her
mother's consolation: "Just
imagine you're in a concen-
tration camp."
Now, Merkin dreams less of
Hitler. She "recognizes the
aggressor" for who he is —
her father — and can "even
identify with him for a while
and then walk on." 0

Since Sigmund Freud
thought dreams were "the
royal road to the un-
conscious," the Viennese
psychoanalyst would pro-
bably have had a field day
with writer Daphne Merkin's
dreams that suggest a Jew's
self-hatred. In an essay in Es-
quire, Merkin, now in her
mid-30s, talks of the dreams
she had for several years of
Adolf Hitler. These occurred
mostly in her late adolescence
and early teens and, much
more rarely, today. Hitler
smiled at her, even stroked
her hair — "the hair of a
Jewess, the wrong color hair,
not an Aryan blond."
Merkin writes that she has
read enough about Hitler to
know that "the real object of
his fury was his father, Alois,
who had beaten him with
Teutonic conviction." So in
her dreams, she tells Hitler
that his anger against his
childhood makes him want to
kill Jews, Hitler "nodded his
head, comprehended, and six
million lives were about to be
spared! How much we can un-
do in dreams."
But when not dreaming,
Merkin had "an innate feel-
ing of houndedness." Like
Hitler, she had a fear of her
father. Her parents were
German-Jewish parents with
"authoritarian inclinations."
One of the few Orthodox
families living in New York's
Upper East Side, the Merkin
family felt isolated. Walking
to shul on Yom Kippur,
Merkin was certain that
everyone could tell I was
Jewish, as clearly as if I were
wearing a yellow star."
