In examining one of the defining events of the 20th century, Doris Bergen situates the Holocaust in its historical, political, social, cultural and military contexts.

Unlike many other treatments of the Holocaust, Nazism, World War II and the Holocaust discusses not only the persecution of Jews, but also other segments of society victimized by the Nazis: gypsies, homosexuals, Poles, Soviet POWs, the handicapped, and other groups deemed undesirable. With clear and eloquent prose, Bergen explores the two interconnected goals that drove the Nazi program of conquest and genocide - purification of the so-called Aryan race and expansion of its living space - and discusses how these goals affected the course of World War II.
Including first hand accounts from perpetrators, victims and eyewitnesses, the book is immediate, human and eminently readable. Get A Copy. Paperback , pages. More Details Original Title.

I found War and Genocide to be an interesting read because it covered some niche areas that were not focused on in other books I was reading at that same time. She analyzes the effects on the Jews, but also homosexuals, Communists, the disabled, and more. This was what I found new and informative because I had no I found War and Genocide to be an interesting read because it covered some niche areas that were not focused on in other books I was reading at that same time.
This was what I found new and informative because I had not heard of attacks on other populations during the rise of the Nazi party in other classes or readings which focus primarily on the attack on Jews. Bergen sticks with her thesis of the Nazi race and space rationale throughout the entire book. The structure of this book is one that is easily readable and actually lends itself to bite sized reading; the sections are short and many, so you can certainly read this in between different events in your day.
Also included, throughout the text, are many photos that enhance the reading. I always find photos integrated into the text more useful than a section centralized to the center of the text because you are provided with context. Interspersed in the text are anecdotal stories of everyday people who experienced something related to the focus of that section: for example, the stories of children forced into hiding.
But if you already have an understanding of the generalities and are looking for a book that will dig in to different aspects this might be the book for yet. This review was previously posted at The Maiden's Court blog. Extremely well written and insightful. There is a close examination of the victims and collaborators of Nazism and the chaotic interplay involved. Highly recommend. Jan 04, Victoria rated it liked it Shelves: history , nazi-germany.
Rather than starting from a particular chronological point, Bergen begins with a short history of several thematic elements that she believes influenced German society and the beliefs of Adolf Hitler, leading to the rise of Nazism. These include antisemitism, racism, eugenics, imperialism, and the cheapening of human life in World War I.
Significantly absent are notions of economic crisis, harsh reparations, and a weak Weimar democracy, all three of which Bergen believes are tropes which carry too much weight in the historiography of the Holocaust. For Bergen, Hitler is the key to the Holocaust. She does not believe, however, that Hitler single-handedly directed the entirety of the Holocaust, largely because he did not have to.
Thus, Hitler had only to make his desires the slightest bit known for them to be enacted. Bergen also places a heavy burden of blame on the German public. Bergen believes that without the support and silence of the German general public, the Holocaust could not have been enacted. She gives several examples of German public protest hindering the enactment of certain racial initiatives or at least driving them underground, such as in the case of early medical experimentation on the mentally ill.
As for why the German public did not generally do this, Bergen provides a variety of reasons, but no monolithic explanation. For her, it merely seems most important that they did not. This is a huge loss as Bergen seems to think that early protest by the German public might have been the only way to prevent the Holocaust. Instead, many profited from and supported Nazi measures, particularly those against Jews. It should also be noted that by giving so much agency to the German public, Bergen dismisses the contention that foreign powers might have been able to prevent the Holocaust.
She is not without sensitivity to the plight of all of those harmed, however. Although the book is largely written in an objective tone, the passages on the atrocities committed are laced with individual anecdotes and photos obviously meant to respect the humanity of those harmed while also reiterating the horrific events of the Holocaust.
Bergen also contends that Nazi war aims were fundamentally intertwined with Nazi racial policy due to the close linkage between race and space. Often her own evidence could be used against her. For instance, she tells the tale of a gentleman who informed the United States of the concentration camps rather early on during World War II, but Bergen still contends that other countries cannot be held accountable for not acting as they could not possibly have understood the nature of the atrocities.
As with any study dealing with the Holocaust, it is never a pleasure read. Reading this book for a graduate course in WWII was extremely difficult; not because of the level of language but the subject matter itself.
Doris Bergen does fulfill the word 'concise' in this work. In pages of reading text, she gives a power-packed overview of how widespread the Holocaust was and the many groups of people marked in the Nazi program of annihilation.
A huge plus for this book is the number of photogra As with any study dealing with the Holocaust, it is never a pleasure read. A huge plus for this book is the number of photographs that are included with details about each one. Jan 28, Jim rated it it was amazing. Great update to the Holocaust literature. This book incorporates the most recent history of the Holocaust. Jewish and non-Jewish victims are featured, though the emphasis is on the former since their destruction was the initial aim of the Nazi genocide.
Bergen documents the Nazi persecution of the Jews from inception to Holocaust. Victims' perspective is included throughout, and Bergen makes good use of photographs to add insight into the role of participants, victims and bystanders.
Useful as a Great update to the Holocaust literature. Useful as a textbook to classes on the Holocaust or genocide. If you want to understand the consequences, read the other half. This is far from an easy read. Am I glad I did? I don't give this five stars because i enjoyed reading it. Rather, because I struggled reading it. Saying that, this is a book I truly believe everyone should read this.
It's haunting, but important. The most thorough account of Holocaust I've ever encountered. Sep 26, Ilene rated it really liked it Recommends it for: anyone who loves history. This is the best synopsis of the Holocaust I have ever read. It is very concise, yet challenges some common historical inaccuracies such as the over-stated significance of the Treaty of Versailles in causing the Germans to become so hateful.
These different perspectives are well researched, documented, and supported. I think this is a book that anyone who loves history would enjoy. Nevertheless, if you aren't a history buff you may find it a bit dry. I however, really enjoyed it and learned a gr This is the best synopsis of the Holocaust I have ever read.
I however, really enjoyed it and learned a great deal from it. It had me consider the Holocaust from a different perspective. Considerable time is dedicated in the book to understanding the atrocities of Stalin and the Soviet Union upon the Jews during this same time period.
I found it fascinating.
War & genocide : a concise history of the Holocaust
The press that achieved this, Palgrave, is to be congratulated on its imagination and commitment. These volumes surely offer us as compendious a commemoration of the Shoah as we can possibly need. What stands out is the enormous amount of common ground For all the recurrence of major themes, is far more than the repetition of A significant difference is the increased attention given to the issue of Holocaust denial and the lesser attention given to educational matters. The former is connected with the successful defence mounted by American academic Deborah Lipstadt against the charge of libel brought against her by rightwing historian David Irving.
The five lessons in this unit give students an overview of the history of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust and provide a window into the choices individuals, groups, and nations made that contributed to genocide. This unit incorporates readings, videos, and other resources from Holocaust and Human Behavior. As you prepare to teach, it is important to refer to the book for the context necessary to help guide students from lesson to lesson and to answer their questions. We also recommend you read the Get Started section of the book for important suggestions about how to foster a reflective classroom community and how to support students as they encounter the emotionally challenging history of the Holocaust. Each lesson below corresponds to roughly one day of instruction time. Since schedules, class period length, and the needs of individual classes and students vary, you will likely need to make adjustments to this plan to best suit your needs and circumstances.

Remembering for the Future
The relationship between war and genocide is a subject of scholarly analysis and debate. Even during periods of peace, the threat of war or the ostensible need to prepare for war can instigate genocidal situations. War is not a necessary precondition for genocide, and genocide does not necessarily occur during war. Still, genocide is most often associated with wartime intentions, policies, and actions. This is as true of ancient times as of the present. In fact, the general decrease in the incidence of war and civil conflict over the ages no doubt contributes to the decreasing incidence of genocide.

Хорошо, это ничего не дает. Начнем вычитание. Я беру на себя верхнюю четверть пунктов, вы, Сьюзан, среднюю. Остальные - все, что внизу. Мы ищем различие, выражаемое простым числом.
Какие-нибудь новости, Сьюзан? - спросил Стратмор и тут же замолчал, увидав Грега Хейла. - Добрый вечер, мистер Хейл. - Он нахмурился, глаза его сузились. - Сегодня суббота. Чем мы обязаны. Хейл невинно улыбнулся: - Просто хотел убедиться, что ноги меня еще носят.
Юбка девушки высоко задралась от ветра, но она не обращала на это ни малейшего внимания. Беккер рванулся к. Неужели все это происходит со мной? - подумал .
