Nazism, The Holocaust, and the Middle East : Arab and Turkish Responses Hardback
Edited by Francis R. Nicosia, Bogac Ergene
Part of the Vermont Studies on Nazi Germany and the Holocaust series
Despite their geographical separation from Western Europe, ethno-religious diversity, and subordinate status within the Nazi racial hierarchy, many Middle Eastern societies proved remarkably hospitable to National Socialist ideology during the 1930s and 1940s.
By focusing on Arab and Turkish reactions to German anti-Semitism and the persecution of European Jews during this period, this expansive collection surveys the institutional and popular reception of Nazism throughout the Middle East.
It provides nuanced and scholarly yet accessible case studies of the ways in which nationalism, Islam, anti-Semitism, and colonialism intertwined, all while sensitive to the region's political, cultural, and religious complexities.
