Watt, Roderick 1997 0-7734-8681-X 372 pages This book makes available in one volume the German text of Klemperer's seminal and still controversial analysis of the influence of National Socialist ideology on the German language, first published in 1947, along with an English-language editorial apparatus which enables the reader to set Klemperer's comments in their biographical, historical, cultural, and socio-political context. The notes and commentary draw on the latest research into the complex and much-debated relationship between National Socialist ideology and the German language. The original German text has been retained, precisely because so many aspects of the German language associated with the Third Reich, be they semantic, morphological, or even stylistic, are so deeply rooted in German culture and so intimately colored by the expressly stated program of the National Socialist propaganda machine to manipulate German for its own ideological aims, that they are effectively untranslatable. Provides a wealth of insights for sociolinguistics, philosophers of language, histories of the Third Reich, and those with an interest in twentieth-century German literature.
Berger, Alan L. 1991 0-7734-9644-0 376 pages Survivor testimonies and philosophical responses to the Holocaust, testifying to the tenacity and self-renewal of the human spirit. Essays from the 1989 Scholar's Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches
Rozenberg, Jacques J. 2003 0-7734-6608-8 344 pages Interdisciplinary essays on the ethical issues which encompassed the trials and Code of Nuremberg have been collated from researchers from various countries in fields as diverse as medicine, bioethics, psychoanalysis, history, philosophy, Jewish thought, law, and ethics. The book focuses on five main areas: the juridical originality of the Nuremberg trials; the scientific, epistemological, and psychoanalytic backgrounds of racism and anti-Semitism; the biomedical and bioethical issues of the Nuremberg Code; a post-Nuremberg historical, ethical, and philosophical study of the notion of a ‘crime against humanity’; and the Jewish perspective on purity, impurity, race, and the universal ethical expectations of mankind. The goal of the interdisciplinary study is to outline the necessary components of a bridge between science ethics, and ethics and law.
Lewin, Eyal 2017 1-4955-0614-2 112 pages This essay concentrates on the strange occurrence of Jews whose legacy is the comparison of Israelis with Nazis. This tendency is becoming prominent among Jewish Western intellectuals, involving artists, scholars, journalists and politicians. Nonetheless, the Israeli-Nazi comparison is prevailing also within the higher echelons of Israeli society. The stated goal of this paper is to portray this strange phenomenon – later to be defined as Jewish Holocaust Inversion – and to comprehend the dangers that it poses to Israeli society and to the Jewish people.
Grenke, Arthur 2011 0-7734-3924-2 448 pages This second book on genocide by Arthur Grenke marks an important change in the forces contributing to genocide. Prior to the Russian Revolution acts of genocide were usually committed on the conquered by the conquerors. However, after 1917 the Soviets and later the Nazis initiated programs of mass genocide and set the framework for later genocides that followed during the late 20th century. Victims of genocide were often designated as targets to be destroyed for political, ethnic, religious, and pseudo-scientific reasons. By eliminating the perceived internal threat, those who committed genocide did so with the perception they were creating an idealized society. This study, therefore, provides a comprehensive examination of the different cases of genocide and why genocide was committed during the 20th century. This book concludes by offering measures to prevent future acts of genocide.
Timms, Edward 1999 0-7734-8195-8 352 pages Essays analyze the principal problems which have affected the evolution of German-Jewish relations since the Enlightenment, showing how the project of emancipation was subverted by powerful countercurrents of antisemitism and anxieties about national identity in a society in the throes of modernization. It emphasizes the importance of social and historical context, offering a differentiated account of the difficulties of emancipation, the sense of alienation which is such a characteristic feature of German-Jewish discourse, and the culmination of various forms of antisemitism in the politics of persecution and genocide. The close focus on specific journals and institutions, writers and texts, reveals the tortuous complexity of German-Jewish relations, with a final emphasis on resistance, survival and commemoration.
Steinberg, Jules 2000 0-7734-7760-8 304 pages The unique contribution of this study consists in the discovery and presentation of concrete textual evidence of a major shift in Arendt’s political thinking between 1951 and 1958, textual material that has been ignored by all Arendt scholars, because it presents Arendt endorsing a radically inegalitarian and anti-democratic doctrine called “the rule of masters,” which Arendt discovered in “ancient political theory.” On the basis of this evidence, the book explains why Arendt’s The Human Condition rehabilitates the pattern of antiliberal and antidemocratic thinking that formed one of the major ideological premises of fascist political thinking. It demonstrates comprehensively that Arendtian antiliberalism shares a great deal in common with the right-wing German tradition of “antisemitic antiliberalism” that arose in the immediate aftermath of 1789 and 1806, where modern liberalism was ridiculed and rejected as Jewish “slave morals” The study contends that the key to deciphering Arendt’s Holocaust scholarship lies in the recognition that scholars are wrong to portray Arendt’s thinking as highly original, and that the most conspicuous feature of Arendt’s thinking is its systematic lack of originality. This leads to the central claim that we can understand the Nazi hatred of the Jews and the ensuing mass murder by reading Arendt’s accounts of these matters in order to figure out how and why she got these matters wrong, even though we find evidence of the truth in her own writings, which Arendt suppresses dishonestly in order to reconcile her interpretation of Nazism with her own defense of a right-wing Nietzschean-Heideggerian pattern of antiliberalism, of the precise kind endorsed as the central premise of Nazi ideology.
Littell, Marcia S. 1985 0-88946-704-8 112 pages Brings together the views of politicians, lawyers, doctors educators, and journalists, as well as historians and theologians to present essays on the Holocaust.
Littell, Marcia S. 1989 0-88946-714-5 152 pages Essays by theologians, historians, legal experts, education specialists, and survivors of the Holocaust address some of the disturbing questions raised in the 40 years since the events took place.
Alland, George 1992 0-7734-9155-4 109 pages A translation, from the original Polish, of the memoirs of a hidden child in Warsaw from 1942 until 1944. The author spent the last year of the war in a German labor camp under a false Polish Catholic identity. This document is unique in that it was written right after the war, starting in December 1945 while the events were still fresh in memory. Presents a young girl's perspective on war and the Holocaust.
Jones, Susanne Lenné 2013 0-7734-4292-8 352 pages The incorporation of photography into German literary texts dealing with the years between 1933 and 1945 is an important innovative technique that offers insights relating to questions of truth, authenticity, and opportunities for personal engagement in the visual and textual representations of the catastrophe that still haunts us today.
This book fills a void in contemporary scholarship by providing an
in-depth analyses of three major German-language writers and their literary reflections of the Holocaust. It examines important insights into the limits of memory on the effects of this historical catastrophe on those born afterwards and the blending of text and image in the search for truth and authenticity.
Mineau, André 2022 1-4955-0954-0 312 pages From the Author's "Summary of the essential elements" of Nazi ideology (pg. 278):
٭ In the field of foreign politics, Nazi ideology fully actualized the geopolitics of biology.
٭ Nazi ideology was predicated on what can be called the "1918 syndrome".
٭ To the Nazi mind, the downfall of Germany tragically confirmed the Jews' universal malevolence.
٭ The Holocaust accomplished what was logically contained within Nazi ideology.
Colijn, G. Jan 1992 0-7734-9516-9 540 pages These papers highlight the contradictions in the Netherlands which led on one hand to a Dutch Nazi Party and a very low rate of survival among Dutch Jews, and on the other hand to facets of considerable resistance. Papers also discuss the symbolic message of Anne Frank. Others, written by those personally involved, pay the tributes of Dutch survivors and narrate the experience of Dutch rescuers. Others give fresh insight into such specialized topics as the experience of survivors in the DP camps after the war, the confrontation with Holocaust revisionists, the present day use of film and drama to convey the Holocaust, and the personal struggle with the Holocaust, e.g. the case of Gottfried Wagner.
Mushkat, Marian 1992 0-7734-9176-7 456 pages This study examines the roots and the mechanism of the political role of anti-Zionism and philo-Semitism in past and present Polish life, analyzes the history of JewishPolish coexistence, and discusses the Jewish contribution to Polish letters, arts and economy. It examines the Polish struggle for independence and advances original conclusions on the metamorphosis of the Judeophobia of our times in the West, East, and Third World. Uses syntheses based on new material, as well as a thoughtful reworking of older documents, examining the interdependence of past and new literary and scientific sources.
Iwanska, Alicja 1998 0-7734-8388-8 200 pages Based on interviews carried out in Chicago in 1955 with Polish intellectuals who survived wartime internment in Nazi concentration camps and later emigrated for political reasons to the US. Contributes to the study of life in the camps, emigration and assimilation studies, and theoretical studies of values. It begins with a brilliant exegesis of the social origins and occupations of the pre-war Polish intelligentsia, and of their aspirations and way of life analyzed under the headings of personalism, patriotism, spiritual leadership, liberal education, social refinement, and lifestyle. It emerges that pre-war intellectual values proved stronger in the camps (where her informants managed to maintain their roles as spiritual leaders) than in the seemingly lesser ordeal of exile. In Chicago, where they found only factory or low-level clerical jobs, had no access to higher intellectual and cultural milieux, and were distrusted or ignored by the Poles of an earlier emigration, the old values were often irrelevant.
Vuletic, Ivana 2003 0-7734-6777-7 220 pages Yugoslav author Danilo Kiš is one of the best-known fiction writers of central and southeastern Europe. This study examines Kiš’s prose as a textual exploration of different modes of self-constitution, executed in order to construct a personal history and a self-portrait. It examines Kiš’s ‘family cycle’ (the novels Early Sorrows; Garden, Ashes; and Hourglass) as a performative act in which a textual inscription of the self mimics the gradual unfolding and constitution of the subject through the three different orders described in Lacan’s writings as Imaginary, Symbolic, and Real. Another chapter analyzes the documentary film Bare Existence (directed by Aleksandar Mandic) for which Kiš co-wrote the script and in which he appears as the interviewer of two women.
Adeli, Lisa 2009 0-7734-4745-8 244 pages During World War II, the Croatian ultra-nationalist Ustaa persecuted nearly two million Serbs, Jews, and Roma in the Independent State of Croatia (present-day Croatia and Bosnia). Political analysts today often cite this genocide as proof that ethnic violence within the region is inevitable. However, an equally important reality is that within just four years, Ustaa excesses had provoked a widespread popular reaction against the violence and the national exclusivity that inspired it.
Zawati, Hilmi M. 2004 0-7734-6260-0 612 pages Winner of the Adele Mellen Prize for Distinguished Contribution to Scholarship

Sibelman, Simon P. 2004 0-7734-6403-4 227 pages This book is a collection of essays arising from the international conference The Legacy of the Holocaust: Teaching the Shoah that was held at the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 1999.
Hundreds of scholars and educators gathered for five days of seminars, workshops and academic sessions each of which addressed specific topics and pedagogies for teaching the Shoah. The essays selected for inclusion in this book represent the thoroughly developed views that a group of scholars/ educators advanced at the conference. Their contributions address major concerns of educators and scholars already established in the field, as well as those of individuals just venturing into the arena. Each essay explores a distinctive Shoah related topic, or proposes an innovative pedagogical approach for effectively presenting the Holocaust to students. This book would be of interest to any person engaged in the study of or research into the Holocaust, or for educators seeking innovative and proven classroom methods for teaching the subject.
There are two portions to this work: topics and topographies. The Topics section will afford close readings of a variety of Holocaust related subjects, many not commonly taught. The topics cross traditional disciplines and extend a complexity of issues arising from purely traditional considerations of the Shoah (i.e. historical, literary or cultural). Topographies introduce specific methodologies that educators have developed for teaching the Holocaust. Instead of dwelling on “tried and true” canonical practices, these contributors advance genuinely resourceful methods for presenting standard Holocaust texts. Contributions in both categories provide suggested reading and viewing lists, which for educators involved in the field, for students investigating the topic, or interested lay readers will prove invaluable.
Morgenthau, Henry 2022 1-4955-0966-4 276 pages This is a reprint of the 1918 book, Ambassador Morgenthau's Story: A Personal Account of the Armenian Genocide. Henry Morgenthau was the U.S. Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire from 1913 to 1916.
He gave stark witness in 1918 to his knowledge of the German invasion and genocide in Armenia.
From the author's Preface (1918, pg. 6):
"By this time the American people have probably become convinced that the Germans deliberately planned the conquest of the world. Yet they hesitate to convict on circumstantial evidence and for this reason all eye witnesses to this, the greatest crime in history, should volunteer their testimony."
Lapomarda, Vincent A. 2012 0-7734-2932-8 332 pages The book describes the role way some Catholic Bishops attempted to resist the Nazi extermination of the Jews and other populations during the Holocaust. It shows that many Catholic Bishops throughout Europe risked life and limb sheltering Jews and other victims. While other scholars forward different opinions on the matter, Lapomarda’s analysis of Pope Pius XII uses factual evidence to show the Pope acted against the Nazis' treatment of the Jews, and facilitated massive movements against the final solution.
Gesin, Michael 2006 0-7734-5907-3 284 pages This book concentrates on the Holocaust in Southern and Southeastern Ukraine, as carried out by Nazi Germany and Antonescu’s Romania with the help of the local Ukrainians and ethnic German colonists. Topics such as the Jewish participation in resistance and opposition, collaboration among local inhabitants, and the interrelations of Jewish and non-Jewish population during the Holocaust will be emphasized.
The topic of the Jewish partisan activities comes under careful scrutiny. The difference will be drawn between the actual and alleged Jewish participation in the Soviet partisan movement, since under the pretext of anti-partisan counterattack, Wehrmacht, SS units and Einsatzgruppen were deployed in Ukraine to perform killing sprees on the Jews. Hundreds of thousands of Jews were murdered in the Ukraine under the cover of anti-partisan activities.
Two topics of particular concentration are the Crimean and Transnistrian Holocaust, both of which are unresearched subjects. The situation there was different from the other cities and towns in the Ukraine and thus requires further investigation and research. In Crimea, the Tatar anti-Semitism as well as the existence of two or more different Jewish separate groups, Karaites, Krimchaks and Rabbinical Jews, created a unique environment, which is analyzed in detailed discussion.
The Holocaust in Odessa, on the other hand, was carried out by the Romanians and not by Germans. The Romanian example is the only example of its kind in World War II. Romania was the only independent country directly involved in genocidal killing operations. The examination of the issues surrounding the willingness of Romanians to initiate and execute the killings is included. While the policies of the Romanian state were inspired by the widespread anti-Semitism, the petty bureaucrats were guided by greed and opportunity. The result of the latter led to the sufferings of many, but also opened a door of salvation for many others.
Eastwood, Margaret 2012 0-7734-1544-0 292 pages In a total rational world, you would expect new offences to be enacted through a process of reflection, research or various programs of reform, undertaken deliberately, by planned law reform commissions, or through comparative analysis with other legal systems. This research proposes that the emergence of one particular offence, 'incitement to genocide', was
not the result of a deliberate attempt to create new offence, nor that its origins came from a rational process of planned codification. Rather, it argues that the creation of this offence was an unintended side effect of the trial and pre-trial process, during the first major war crimes trial held in Nuremberg after World War II in 1945/6.
This reconstruction provides the first comprehensive study that gives an in depth analysis, which explores how the defendant, Julius Streicher's anti-Semitic propaganda published in a private newspaper, Der Stunner could, though a process of selective reinterpretation by the Nuremberg Tribunal, be classified as inciting mass murder through words alone, under the remit of crimes against humanity in Article 6(c) of the Nuremberg Charter, In 1945, the crime of inciting mass murder through words alone was not recognized or classified as a criminal offence by international criminal law, no precedents existed for its definition, nature, scope, or, its prosecution, defense, or determination of an appropriate sentence, should defendants be found guilty. This study fills a gap in existing literature by focusing on the legal dilemmas and interpretations faced by all parties 'behind the scenes' involved in the prosecution and 'birth' of' incitement to genocide' prior to its legal recognition as an offence by the 1948, Genocide Convention.
Feldman, Lawrence H. 2022 1-4955-0968-1 152 pages This is a study of the role of Spain and Franco in the Holocaust with an aim to trace the relationship between Franco and Hitler during the Second World War. ...Hitler supported Franco during the Spanish Civil War, so it is surprising that Franco did not join Hitler in the war against the Allies. Hitler met Franco on the French border in 1940, but while a treaty was signed it was never implemented. Why? The evidence is in the diplomatic correspondence between the AXIS powers, Allies and Franco. -from the Author's "Prologue One"
Schiff, Vera 2012 0-7734-4059-3 212 pages The author describes the social structure, created by the prisoners themselves at Theresienstadt: the library, banks, schools, orchestra, medical facilities, and economic life. The book’s author provides eye witness information about the organization of this camp created by the Nazis in order to deceive the world about their true purpose.

Khatchadourian, Haig 2003 0-7734-6556-1 248 pages This collection brings together a number of papers that throw light on and engage timely and important ethical issues facing humanity in the 21st century: war, revolution, political assassination, terrorism and counter-terrorism, humanitarian military intervention, nuclear deterrence and the Missile Defense Shield; genocide, and the quest for peace. In addition to the ethical issues considered, the study also critically examines pertinent international legal aspects of these issues
Littell, Franklin H. 1994 0-7734-9336-0 401 pages A selection of papers presented at the 20th Anniversary of the Annual Scholars' Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches. The papers came from five countries and covered a wide range of academic disciplines. A study and discussion of the years of the Shoah and the Kirchenkampf, it includes Elie Wiesel's message pointing up the imperative of asking the questions, of living faithfully and honestly with the central questions of death and life. The volume concludes with Yaffa Eliach's message which movingly brings those who died into their part in the dialogue.
Bendremer, Jutta 1997 0-7734-8665-8 132 pages This research is based on taped, personal interviews with each former victim. Their backgrounds varied as to country of origin, size of family, economic resources, education of parents, and length and type of incarceration. Many common denominators emerged concerning their strategies for survival. As well as the stories of the ten survivors, the volume includes a Questionnaire for Holocaust Survivors. This research provides insights into early traumatization, and will prove useful to scholars in the disciplines of Holocaust studies, women's studies, psychology, sociology, law enforcement, gerontology, history and humanities. With photographs.
