Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a subtle and well-documented argument that notably advances our understanding of German popular opinion towards the Nazis' anti-Semitic policies." Inside Out

"A well written and important book that deserves to be widely read and to be placed in every public library." Times Higher Education Supplement

"Bankier's book will be welcomed by anyone teaching German history, Nazism, or the Holocaust, because it is the first book to answer comprehensively the most common student question in any discussion of the Holocaust: What did average Germans know and how did they feel about Hitler's antisemitic propaganda and mass murder?"
