Germans against Germans
The Fate of the Jews, 1938–1945
Author Moshe Zimmermann explores questions of what made such a war possible? How could such a radical process of exclusion take place in a highly civilized, modern society? What were the societal mechanisms that paved the way for legal discrimination, isolation, deportation, and eventual extermination of the individuals who were previously part and parcel of German society?
Germans against Germans demonstrates how the combination of antisemitism, racism, bureaucracy, cynicism, and imposed collaboration culminated in "the final solution."
About the Authors
"To this brilliant new synthesis on the history of the Jews in the Third Reich, Moshe Zimmermann has brought a lifetime of learning on modern German and Jewish history. Germans against Germans explores the expectations and desires of contemporaries as they lived them, without knowing how history would turn up. This is essential reading for scholars in the field."—Alon Confino, University of Massachusetts Amherst
