With the arrival of 1945, Mencken began feeling the effects of his age. Keenly aware that the rest of the world was in chaos, he was disturbed by post-war conditions in Germany, and sent care packages to German citizens. News of the Nazi concentration camps and the killings of millions reduced to silence. By the end of the decade, a new generation of admirers sought out Mencken, among them biographers Edgar Kemler and William Manchester.
