Other Germans: Black Germans and the Politics of Race, Gender, and Memory in the Third Reich by Tina Marie Campt

Tina M. Campt's Other Germans tells the story of Germany's black citizens and the complicated ways in which members of this population managed to survive Germany's most painful and perplexing epoch, the Third Reich. Most strikingly, Campt focuses her pathbreaking study of the Holocaust primarily on race, rather than anti-Semitism. By centering on Germany's Black community rather than its Jewish population, Campt examines the Holocaust not through the history of anti-Semitism but through the ideology of racial purity that fueled the regime's fundamental organization. From this vantage point, the book reveals how, in the service of "racial purity," the regime produced some of the very subjects it ultimately sought to destroy.
