Female Administrators Of The Third Reich from the Author: Rachel Century. This book compares female administrators who specifically chose to serve the Nazi cause in voluntary roles with those who took on such work as a progression of established careers. Under the Nazi regime, secretaries, SS-Helferinnen (female auxiliaries for the SS) and Nachrichtenhelferinnen des Heeres (female auxiliaries for the army) held similar jobs: taking dictation, answering telephones, sending telegrams. Yet their backgrounds and degree of commitment to Nazi ideology differed markedly. The author explores their motivations and what they knew about the true nature of their work. These women had access to information about the administration of the Holocaust and are a relatively untapped resource. Their recollections shed light on the lives, love lives, and work of their superiors, and the tasks that contributed to the displacement, deportation and death of millions. The question of how gender intersected with Nazism, repression, atrocity and genocide forms the conceptual thread of this book.

Stalin And Europe from the Author: Timothy Snyder. The Soviet Union was the largest state in the twentieth-century world, but its repressive power and terrible ambition were most clearly on display in Europe. Under the leadership of Joseph Stalin, the Soviet Union transformed itself and then all of the European countries with which it came into contact. This volume considers each aspect of the encounter of Stalin with Europe: the attempt to create a kind of European state by accelerating the European model of industrial development in the USSR; mass murder in anticipation of a war against European powers; the actual contact with Europe's greatest power, Nazi Germany, first as ally and then as enemy; four years of war fought chiefly on Soviet territory and bringing untold millions of deaths, including much of the Holocaust; and finally the reestablishment of the Soviet system, not just in prewar territory of the USSR, but in Western Ukraine, Western Belarus, the Baltic States, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, and East Germany.

Nazi Palestine from the Author: Klaus-Michael Mallmann. "It is to the credit of the two authors of this book . . . that they have been assiduous in locating information either inaccessible or overlooked earlier."—Gerhard L. Weinberg The planned extermination of the Jews living in Palestine was only weeks away . . . In 1941-42 Nazi Germany appeared to be invincible in North Africa, and many Arab nationalists looked to a leader, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin el-Husseini, for guidance. The Mufti had several meetings with Adolf Hitler. Nazi Germany also pledged to wipe out the Jews who had been living in Palestine since time immemorial as well as the new arrivals from the beginning of the modern Zionist movement in the nineteenth century and following the Balfour Declaration in 1917. A special unit was assembled and trained in Greece in the spring of 1942 by SD officer Walter Rauff, the originator of the gassing van experiments in Poland and the Soviet Union. They were to operate behind the lines with the help of those in the region who were eager to join the task force. After El Alamein, the Einsatzkommando shifted its operations to Tunisia, where it implemented cruel anti-Jewish policies for many months. Over 2,500 Tunisian Jews were to die in the camps set up by the Nazis and their collaborators. The authors have identified the relevant documents and analyzed the racist, ideological, political, and religious implications of the planning of a specific regional extermination program within the context of the Holocaust.

Berufswunsch Henker from the Author: Klaus Hillenbrand. Tausende Menschen starben während der nationalsozialistischen Diktatur durch das Fallbeil. Einige wenige Scharfrichter töteten damals im Auftrag einer skrupellosen Justiz unterschiedslos Widerstandskämpfer, Diebe und Gewaltverbrecher. Berichte über diese Henker verlockten viele Deutsche dazu, sich selbst um das einträgliche Amt des Scharfrichters zu bewerben. Hunderte Schreiben gingen bei den Behörden ein; doch nur den wenigsten gelang es, tatsächlich zum "staatlich bestallten Mörder" zu werden. Die Bewerber waren teils überzeugte Nationalsozialisten, teils Arbeitslose in großer persönlicher Not. Unter ihnen fanden sich Frontsoldaten ebenso wie Metzger, Polizisten und Krankenpfleger. Das Buch stellt die Praxis der Vollstreckung der Todesstrafe im "Dritten Reich" dar und bietet den Versuch einer Typologie der Henker. So wird deutlich, zu welchen Gewaltexzessen manche Deutsche im NS-Staat bereit waren.

The Nazi Party 1919 1945 from the Author: Dietrich Orlow. This is the only complete historical account of the rise and fall of the political party known in Germany as the infamous NSDAP (National Socialist German Worker’s Party). It covers the entire period of the Nazi Party’s existence, from its humble, desperate beginnings in 1919 to the catastrophe of 1945 and its banishment as a criminal organization bent on genocide and war as a result of the Nuremberg Trials. The Nazi Party was a model of fanatical political efficiency in furthering the goals of Adolf Hitler’s dictatorship and at the same time one that attracted many careerists and undesirable elements of society.
