Compromised moral position.

-I don't think one can write from a compromised moral position," remarked the German writer WG Sebald, who has died, aged 57, in a car crash in East Anglia.

-That scruple put him at odds with much of (his?) contemporary writing.

-Jacques Austerlitz recovers memories in his 50s of having arrived in Britain from Prague on the Kindertransport.
My teacher at my Wirijk-period was also a exKindertransport-child, then.

-Could consider myself a "second generation".
