The Holocaust : a German historian examines the genocide by Wolfgang Benz( Book )

56 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The History of the Holocaust keeps being written and rewritten in ever greater detail, but almost always by Jews. Wolfgang Benz's book makes an important contribution by bringing German perspective to this horrific event. The first book written by a scholar of the younger generation, The Holocaust does not attempt to explain the role of antisemitism throughout history, the origins of National Socialism, or to question why German citizens allowed the Holocaust to take place. Instead, Benz's goal is to provide and analyze the incontrovertible facts and political decisions that led to the dehumanization and systematic murder of millions of Jews and other ethnic minorities in Germany and Eastern Europe during the Nazi regime." "From the Wannsee Conference of January 1942, which established a plan "to rid all German territory of Jews by legal means," to the laws that allowed active governmental discrimination against Jews, the stripping of their civil rights, the establishment of ghettos throughout Eastern Europe, the creation of killing centers, and the development of an efficient system of extermination, The Holocaust details the events, individuals, and decisions that determined the fate of millions. An important work of historical analysis, this volume is a powerful introduction to the history of the Holocaust. The book concludes with a discussion of what the German people really knew about the genocide."--Jacket

Die revolutionäre Illusion : zur Geschichte des linken Flügels der USPD : Erinnerungen von Curt Geyer by Curt Geyer( Book )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in German and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1891 als Sohn eines Reichstagsabgeordneten der Gründergeneration der SPD in Leipzig geboren, wuchs Curt Geyer in der Arbeiterbewegung auf. Nach dem Studium der Volkswirtschaft und Geschichte wurde er 1914 Redakteur an der Leipziger Volkszeitung, einer der wichtigsten sozialdemokratischen Tageszeitungen. Als Mitglied der USPD spielte Geyer in der Novemberrevolution eine führende Rolle im Leipziger Arbeiter- und Soldatenrat, im Dezember 1918 wurde er 27-jährig Fraktionsvorsitzender beim Berliner Rätekongress. Seine Karriere führte ihn in das Führungskollektiv der USPD, 1919-1924 war er Mitglied der Nationalversammlung und des Reichtags. Als Angehöriger der radikalen Linken propagierte er den Zusammenschluss der USPD mit der KPD und den Beitritt zur Kommunistischen Internationale. Anfang 1921 ging Geyer als Vertreter seiner Partei nach Moskau und machte dort die Erfahrung, dass in der Komintern nur Satelliten der russischen KP erwünscht waren. Geyer wandelte sich vom Propagandisten der Komintern zum Gegner des Moskauer Kurses; nach dem Ausschluss aus der VKPD kehrte er in die SPD zurück. Als Redakteur des Vorwärts und politischer Berater des Parteivorstands wandte er sich schließlich ganz vom orthodoxen Marxismus ab. Im Oktober 1933 musste Geyer Deutschland verlassen. In Prag und Paris war er Chefredakteur des Neuen Vorwärts und Mitglied des Exil-Parteivorstands der SPD. In London, der letzten Station seines Exils, trennte sich Geyer von der SPD. Von 1947 bis 1963 arbeitete er als Korrespondent der Süddeutschen Zeitung und einiger anderer Zeitungen in London. Er starb 1967 in Lugano

A diary covering the years 1933-45, written by Nathorff, a German Jew who emigrated to the U.S. in 1940.

She was born Hertha Einstein in 1895 in Laupheim, to a family of wealthy industrialists, who were related to Albert Einstein. Nathorff studied medicine and played an important role in the development of health care for mothers and infants in Berlin. The diary traces the persecution suffered by Nathorff and documents the gradual worsening of the situation of the Jews in Germany, from discrimination to deprivation of civil rights to the fight for survival through flight. Nathorff and her two sisters managed to enter the U.S thanks to an influential uncle, but her parents stayed behind and died in Germany in 1940
