Holocaust : a history by Deborah Dwork( Book )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 1,904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a dramatic account that reshapes the way we think and talk about the greatest crime in history. Unrivaled in reach and scope, Holocaust illuminates the long march of events, from the Middle Ages to the modern era, which led to this great atrocity. It is a story of all Europe, of Nazis and their allies, the experience of wartime occupation, the suffering and strategies of marked victims, the failure of international rescue, and the success of individual rescuers. It alone in Holocaust literature negotiates the chasm between the two histories, that of the perpetrators and of the victims and their families, shining new light on German actions and Jewish reactions. No other book in any language has so embraced this multifaceted story. Holocaust uniquely makes use of oral histories recorded by the authors over fifteen years across Europe and the United States, as well as never-before-analyzed archival documents, letters, and diaries; it contains in addition seventy-five illustrations and sixteen original maps, each accompanied by an extended caption
Auschwitz, 1270 to the present by Deborah Dwork( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 1,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auschwitz, 1270 to the Present elucidates how the prewar ordinary town of Auschwitz became Germany's most lethal killing site step by step and in stages: a transformation wrought by human beings, mostly German and mostly male. Who were the men who conceived, created, and constructed the killing facility? What were they thinking as they inched their way to iniquity? Using the hundreds of architectural plans for the camp that the Germans, in their haste, forgot to destroy, as well as blueprints and papers in municipal, provincial, and federal archives, Deborah Dwork and Robert Jan van Pelt show that the town of Auschwitz and the camp of that name were the centerpiece of Himmler's ambitious project to recover the German legacy of the Teutonic Knights and Frederick the Great in Nazi-ruled Poland. Analyzing the close ties between the 700-year history of the town and the five-year evolution of the concentration camp in its suburbs, Dwork and van Pelt offer an absolutely new and compelling interpretation of the origins and development of the death camp at Auschwitz. And drawing on oral histories of survivors, memoirs, depositions, and diaries, the authors explore the ever more murderous impact of these changes on the inmates' daily lives

Criminal case 40/61, the trial of Adolf Eichmann : an eyewitness account by Harry Mulisch( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under a deceptively simple lable, "criminal case 40/61," the trial of Adolf Eichmann began in 1961. Mulisch modestly called his book on case 40/61 a report, and it is certainly that, as he gives firsthand accounts of the trial and its key players and scenes (the defendant's face strangely asymmetric and riddled by tics, his speech absurdly baroque). Eichmann's character comes out in his incessant bureaucratizing and calculating, as well as in his grandiose visions of himself as a Pontius Pilate-like innocent. As Mulisch intersperses his dispatches from Jerusalem with meditative accounts of a divided and ruined Berlin, an eerily rebuilt Warsaw, and a visit to the gas chambers of Auschwitz, Criminal Case 40/61, the Trial of Adolf Eichmann emerges as a disturbing and highly personal essay on the Nazi extermination of European Jews and on the human capacity to commit evil ever more efficiently in an age of technological advancement."--Jacket

Seeking asylum: German Jewish refugees in South Africa, 1933-1948 by Lotta M Stone( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study provides a multi-layered perspective on German Jewish refugees from Nazi Europe to South Africa. Three strands of inquiry emerge as crucial. South Africa was politically divided, and this division influenced public policy. The concern over the influx of Jewish immigrants was reflected in the debates over immigration policies and the treatment of "enemy aliens." The demographics and experiences of these asylum seekers from Nazi Germany tells the story of who these people were, why they left Germany, and their process of adjustment to an alien land. Immigration involves the host as well as the newcomer and the reception of the group by the existing South African Jewish and non-Jewish communities played a vital role in the refugee experience. Central to the study is the issue of racism. How "white" are Jews? Racism forced the Jews to flee Europe. Racism colored their reception. And racism shaped South African society
