Belonging and Genocide : Hitler's Community, 1918-1945 Paperback / softback


No one has ever posed a satisfactory explanation for the extreme inhumanity of the Holocaust.

What enabled millions of Germans to perpetrate or condone the murder of the Jews?

In this illuminating book, Thomas Kuhne offers a provocative answer.

In addition to the hatred of Jews or coercion that created a genocidal society, he contends, the desire for a united "people's community" made Germans conform and join together in mass crime.

Exploring private letters, diaries, memoirs, secret reports, trial records, and other documents, the author shows how the Nazis used such common human needs as community, belonging, and solidarity to forge a nation conducting the worst crime in history.
