Becoming Eichmann : rethinking the life, crimes, and trial of a "desk murderer" by David Cesarani( Book )

55 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 1,527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1941 to 1945 Adolf Eichmann organized the mass deportation and extinction of Jews in Europe. Working at his desk and in the field, he was at the center of Nazi genocide. This book, the first account of Eichmann's life to appear in over forty years, reveals a surprising portrait of the man once seen as epitomizing the "banality of evil." Drawing on recently unearthed documents, historian Cesarani explores Eichmann's early career, when he learned how to become an administrator of genocide, and shows how Eichmann developed into the Reich's "expert" on Jewish matters, becoming ever more hateful and brutal. This sobering account deepens our understanding and challenges our preconceptions of Adolf Eichmann, and offers fresh insights into both the operation of the "Final Solution" and its most notorious perpetrator.--From publisher description
Arthur Koestler : the homeless mind by David Cesarani( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A central European Jew born in 1905, Koestler was molded by his times. Uprooted by war and revolution and hounded by prejudice, he struggled to make sense of a world on the edge of apocalypse. His search for meaning, identity and belonging swept him up in the raging ideological torrents of his times - Zionism, Communism, anti-Communism and both hard scientific and esoteric mystical pursuits - and culminated in an idiosyncratic and deeply personal ideological position that has confused and eluded critics and commentators." "Equally restless in his personal relationships, Koestler made and broke friendships and marriages. His violent affairs with women were legendary, but until now the shocking details of his private life were hidden from view by loyal friends and obscured by the Olympian prose of his autobiographical writing. Cesarani is the first to make unrestricted use of Koestler's private papers. He also draws on previously secret documents held by the KGB and the FBI, which expose the depth of Koestler's involvement in the Communist Party and, later, his relations with the CIA."--Jacket
The final solution : origins and implementation by David Cesarani( Book )

33 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although there is an immense amount of literature on the 'Final Solution' - the Nazis' attempt to exterminate the Jews of Europe during the Second World War - many critical questions still remain unresolved. The authoritative essays in The Final Solution set out to clarify the origins of the attempted genocide of the Jews, and to provide new answers to this period of history which often seems inexplicable." "The book draws on important new evidence, much of it from archives in Eastern Europe which have only recently become accessible. Contributors are among the leading experts in the field. The essays focus on the preconditions and antecedents for the 'Final Solution' and the immediate origins of the decision to murder Europe's Jewish population. They consider, too, the impact of the German invasion of Russia in June 1941 on the evolution of a genocidal policy and the response of the peoples and governments in Germany, occupied Europe, the Free World and the Jewish communities under the Nazis and in the West." "The results of this study are often controversial. The essays challenge many accepted notions about the behaviour of the German Army, how much the Germans knew, and the response of the non-Jewish population in Occupied Europe and the West." "The Final Solution will be of great interest to students of modern European history. It will also make invaluable reading for anyone seeking to understand further this most tragic chapter of recent history."--Jacket

9 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the last decade scholars have been questioning the idea that the Holocaust was not talked about in any way until well into the 1970s. After the Holocaust: Challenging the Myth of Silence is the first collection of authoritative, original scholarship to expose a serious misreading of the past on which, controversially, the claims for a 'Holocaust industry' rest. Taking an international approach this bold new book exposes the myth and opens the way for a sweeping reassessment of Jewish life in the postwar era, a life lived in the pervasive, shared awareness that Jews had narrowly survived a

Port Jews : Jewish communities in cosmopolitan maritime trading centres, 1550-1950 by David Cesarani( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As these studies show, the utility of Jewish merchants in an era of European expansion overseas was vital to the relatively tolerant relations between Jews and non-Jews. It made possible higher levels of acculturation, integration and assimilation than ever before." "But port cities were not simply benign engines of progress. Jews active in the transatlantic slave trade in Amsterdam compromised fundamental Jewish values. Rivalry between mercantile communities in cities such as Odessa was regularly expressed through religious and ethnic hatred. The fall of empires and the rise of nation states could have catastrophic effects on 'port Jewries' like Salonika's. Jewish mass migration through ports such as London and Southampton degraded the image of the Jew."--Jacket
