Overview

This book probes the background of the ultimately unexplainable evil of our century, the deliberate and unprovoked murder of millions of European Jews and goes on to explore German reactions to that evil. Depicting the emergence in Welmar Germany of a new type of extreme anti-Semite, of which Hitler was the paramount example, Sarah Gordon discusses a number of related questions about the role of anti Semitism in the rise of the Nazis and draws on hitherto unexamined Gestapo files, new data on court sentences, and a variety of other sources to describe the tiny numbers of courageous Germans who opposed Nazi anti-Semitism.
