Overview

A major historical document, this book contains interviews with more than 150 Germans who witnessed, participated in, or resisted the rise of Adolph Hitler. The testimony comes from well-known figures like Manfred Rommel and Helmut Kohl; former soldiers and ordinary civilians; and victims of the criminal policies of the Nazi regime. Haunting and extraordinary tales of horror, courage, grim determination, and moral confusion fill these pages. Voices from the Third Reich takes the material of epic history and presents it in the form of the individual human experiences of men, women, and children subjected to the pressures of total war in a fascist state.

More than 150 Germans contributed to this fascinating oral history of the Second World War, which gives first-hand accounts of what it was like to watch and participate in the rise of Hitler, to endure the peril of the seas in a U-boat, to fight and watch men die, and to suffer through bombings at Dresden and Hamburg.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The result of a collaborative editorial effort by two German veterans of WW II and an American college professor, these recollections from more than 150 Germans cover a wide range of experience, civilian and military, during the Nazi era. Many of those interviewed, who were children or teenagers when Hitler came to power, speak frankly about the allure of National Socialism and of the ``adaptations'' forced on them, internally and externally, during the war. As the editors point out, heroism and self-sacrifice are evident in many of the statements, but so are egoism and self- deception. The book challenges certain assumptions common among non-Germans: that most citizens of the Third Reich were fully aware of the crimes perpetrated by the regime; that the survivors of that generation are conscious of a burden of guilt; and finally that older Germans are happy to forget the war. The men and women included here recall their attitudes and behavior in compelling and painful detail. (May)
Library Journal
A thoroughly fascinating and occasionally depressing series of excerpts from hundreds of interviews of West German and Austrian survivors of the Nazi years. In 16 thematic chapters the authors have collated brief statements on topics such as the war, genocide, resistance, women, children, simple survival, and daily affairs. The contributors come from a wide variety of backgrounds and persuasion. The result is an intriguing and troubling picture of those who made the Third Reich. Two perhaps unavoidable shortcomings mar this otherwise excellent project. First, the excerpts are very brief portions of rather lengthy interviews; the reader wishes for a more representative and cohesive sense of each respondent. Second, no East Germans are included. It would have been fascinating to see how that very different postwar political culture might have colored recollections of the Third Reich. Highly recommended.-- James B. Street, Santa Cruz P.L., Cal.
