The German resistance to Hitler by Walter Schmitthenner( Book )

7 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 763 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

Germany in the age of total war by Volker R Berghahn( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1981 and now re-issued with a new Preface, this book contains contributions on key issues such as the origins of the First World War, the psychological impact of that war on the Germans, the enigmatic personality of Walter Rathenau, anti-semitism and paramilitarism, as well as German Ostpolitik during the Weimar period. The collapse of the Weimar Republic is re-examined and this is followed by an analysis of the social basis of the SS leadership corps, German reactions to the defeat in 1945 as observed by the British authorities and finally a wide-ranging comparatiste essay on why Germany did not experience a 20th century revolution in spite of the tremendous upheavals it suffered
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 508 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

A history of the Prussian Junkers by F. L Carsten( Book )

12 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surveys the rise of the Prussian nobility from medieval times and their role in politics. From the late 19th century on, the Prussian Junkers' conservatism became more nationalistic, "völkisch", and antisemitic. Influenced by the Agrarian League, which defended landowners' interests, the Conservative Party adopted an antisemitic platform in 1892. Describes the Junkers' opposition to the Weimar Republic and determination to maintain their supremacy in rural districts, opposing "Jewish influence". In 1920 the organization of nobles, the Deutsche Adelgenossenschaft, adopted the racist "Aryan paragraph". The Landbund, successor to the Agrarian League, was increasingly dominated by the Nazis. Junker influence on Hindenburg helped bring Hitler to power. Ch. 10 (p. 179-190) describes the Junkers' loss of political and social status after 1933; some rose to prominence in the SS or the army, usually without identifying with Nazi ideology. A small minority resisted, some of them influenced by reports on the massacre of Jews

The first Austrian Republic, 1918-1938 : a study based on British and Austrian documents by F. L Carsten( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes life and political events in Austria after World War I on the basis of British legation reports from Vienna, supplemented by press reports and the records of the Society of Friends. These reports reflect widespread antisemitism, especially in Vienna, aggravated by hardships in the postwar period, political instability, and the rise of nationalistic para-military organizations. Antisemitic demonstrations were held in 1919 against Jewish war refugees from Poland and in 1920 against "Jewish domination" at the University of Vienna. The Republic and its army were also identified with the Jews. Documents the growing influence of Nazism from 1930 on. Ch. 9 describes the Anschluss and its results, including persecution of the Jews
