Gold and iron : Bismarck, Bleichröder, and the building of the German empire by Fritz Richard Stern ( Book )
27 editions published between 1977 and 1987 in English and held by 1,901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a book about Germans and Jews, about power and money. It is a book focused on Bismarck and Bleichröder, Junker and Jew, statesman and banker, collaborators for over thirty years. The setting is that of a Germany where two worlds clashed: the new world of capitalism and an earlier world with its ancient feudal ethos; gradually a new and broadened elite emerged, and Bismarck's tie with Bleichröder epitomized that regrouping. It is the story of the founding of the new German Empire, in whose midst a Jewish minority rose to embattled prominence

Einstein's German world by Fritz Richard Stern ( Book )
17 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and French and held by 1,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Einstein's German World, the eminent historian Fritz Stern explores the ambiguous promise of Germany before Hitler, as well as its horrifying decline into moral nihilism under Nazi rule, and aspects of its remarkable recovery since World War II. He does so by blending history and biography in a sequence of finely drawn studies of Germany's great scientists and of German-Jewish relations before and during Hitler's regime." "Stern's central chapter traces the complex friendship of Albert Einstein and the Nobel Prize - winning chemist Fritz Haber, contrasting their responses to German life and to their Jewish heritage. Other chapters, also based on new archival sources, consider the turbulent and interrelated careers of the physicist Max Planck, an austere and powerful figure who helped to make Berlin a happy, productive place for Einstein and other legendary scientists; of Paul Ehrlich, the founder of chemotherapy; of Walther Rathenau, the German-Jewish industrialist and statesman tragically assassinated in 1922; and of Chaim Weizmann, chemist, Zionist, and first president of Israel, whose close relations with his German colleagues is here for the first time recounted."--Jacket

No ordinary men : Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Hans von Dohnanyi, resisters against Hitler in church and state by Elisabeth Sifton ( Book )
6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the twelve years of Hitler's Third Reich, very few Germans took the risk of actively opposing his tyranny and terror, and fewer still did so to protect the sanctity of law and faith. In No Ordinary Men, Elisabeth Sifton and Fritz Stern focus on two remarkable, courageous men who did - the pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his close friend and brother-in-law Hans von Dohnanyi - and offer new insights into the fearsome difficulties that resistance entailed. (Not forgotten is Christine Bonhoeffer Dohnanyi, Hans's wife and Dietrich's sister, who was indispensable to them both.) From the start Bonhoeffer opposed the Nazi efforts to bend Germany's Protestant churches to Hitler's will, while Dohnanyi, a lawyer in the Justice Ministry and then in the Wehrmacht's counterintelligence section, helped victims, kept records of Nazi crimes to be used as evidence once the regime fell, and was an important figure in the various conspiracies to assassinate Hitler. The strength of their shared commitment to these undertakings - and to the people they were helping - endured even after their arrest in April 1943 and until, after great suffering, they were executed on Hitler's express orders in April 1945, just weeks before the Third Reich collapsed. Bonhoeffer's posthumously published Letters and Papers from Prison and other writings found a wide international audience, but Dohnanyi's work is scarcely known, though it was crucial to the resistance and he was the one who drew Bonhoeffer into the anti-Hitler plots. Sifton and Stern offer dramatic new details and interpretations in their account of the extraordinary efforts in which the two jointly engaged. No Ordinary Men honors both Bonhoeffer's human decency and his theological legacy, as well as Dohnanyi's preservation of the highest standard of civic virtue in an utterly corrupted state
Unser Jahrhundert ein Gespräch by Helmut Schmidt ( Book )
11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Fangen Sie an, Fritz", mit diesem Satz beginnt ein Gespräch unter Freunden. Helmut Schmidt und Fritz Stern kennen sich seit vielen Jahren und haben sich im Sommer 2009 zusammengesetzt, um über Themen miteinander zu reden, die ihnen am Herzen liegen: Erfahrungen und Lehren aus der Geschichte, das gemeinsam erlebte Jahrhundert, Menschen, die ihnen begegnet sind. Das Ergebnis ist ein ebenso anregendes wie kurzweiliges, freimütiges und nicht selten witziges Buch, in dem sich der Politiker und der Historiker die Bälle zuspielen, mal im Konsens, mal im Widerspruch, stets auf eine pointierte Darlegung ihrer eigenen Positionen bedacht. Das Spektrum der behandelten Fragen reicht von Bismarck bis Israel, vom Zweiten Weltkrieg bis zum Aufstieg Chinas, vom Rückblick auf die Ära Bush bis zu den überhöhten Boni für Banker, und auch die Anekdoten kommen nicht zu kurz. Zwei kluge alte Männer streifen durch das 20. Jahrhundert und die Welt von heute, und der Leser genehmigt sich eine Prise Weisheit
