Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With the current debate and accompanying loud publicity over Daniel J. Goldhagen's Hitler's Willing Executioners (LJ 3/15/96), this slim volume will probably be overlooked, especially by general readers. This is unfortunate, since the book, a result of a recent Bavarian conference entitled "No One Participated, No One Knew," contributes to the continual debate: Did the "average" German know what was happening to the Jews during the Nazi years? In the series of accounts presented here, followed by scholarly essays, eyewitnesses living in Germany during the Nazi years all state that German citizens knew what was happening. Wollenberg (Univ. of Bremen), who edits the German, and Pribic (Layfayette Coll.), who translates, do not make the English easy for general readers. Those who are willing to try, however, will be rewarded. This book should be in all academic libraries and public libraries with strong collections on the Holocaust.Dennis L. Noble, Sequim, Wash.
Juxtaposes eyewitness accounts from Nuremberg of Reichskristallnacht, with modern interpretive essays that analyze the policies, behavior, and events directed against Jews during the Third Reich. First published as Niemand war dabei und keiner hat's gewusst in 1989 by R. Poper GmbH in Munich. Paper edition (unseen), $17.50. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
