The German resistance to Hitler by Walter Schmitthenner( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book includes four essays, each written by a German specialist, that discuss important problems of the German resistance with judgment and candor, offering the kind of interpretive judgment often lacking in other histories. Hermann Graml shows that as far as foreign policy, the resistance conservatives were never quite able to reconcile their hopes for a supranational solution in central Europe with their desire to fulfill traditional national aims from a position of German strength. Addressing the social policy of resisting groups, Hans Mommsen concludes that a central purpose was the "de-massing of the masses," while rejecting both communism and Western democracy. Hans-Joachim Reichhardt assesses the labor movement, wherein Communist leaders come out badly. Utterly failing to understand the threat of Hitler, they refused to join in efforts to thwart his coming to power. On the efforts of the religious, Ernst Wolf concludes, as have so many others, that the heroic resistance of individual Christians contrasts lamentably with the role played by organized Christianity. These thoughtful essays reinforce the impression gained in larger and more detailed studies: the resistance to Hitler's barbarism by decent German citizens was widespread, genuine--and tragically ineffective

The German workers and the Nazis by F. L Carsten( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and German and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although there have been innumerable monographs and books on the attitude of the German workers to National Socialism, there has been no comprehensive study of the subject. Interest has focused on resistance and opposition, not on the attitude of the large majority who were passive or indifferent, more interested in their working conditions and wages than in political questions; but there was also an active pro-Nazi minority. The active opposition consisted of Communists, Social Democrats and Independent Socialists - another comparatively small minority, the members of which suffered cruel persecution. Partly based on the author's own experience, The German Workers and the Nazis combines an account of the German working-class opposition to Hitler and the Nazis with a description of the workers' daily problems and mood - which ranged from support to total opposition - during the 12 years of the Third Reich
