Product description

From the Author

Life (and death) in the 3rd Reich and their ethical dilemmas
Our aim in Surviving Hitler is to step back in time to the heart of the Third Reich - including occupied countries such as France and Holland as well as Germany itself - and illustrate the range and depth of ethical and moral dilemmas under Nazism. Our research shows that the price of civic courage, of taking a stand against terror - even if just on a personal level - was not always as high as has been believed.

We have used a variety of sources to illustrate daily life and death in the Nazi era. These include declassified intelligence and diplomatic documents; our own extensive interviews with survivors from Poland, Germany, Israel, the United States and Hungary; and other little-known material.

Our aim is to focus the reader's attention on the question of moral courage, and to consider the question of how ordinary people react under extraordinary pressure. While there are many worthwhile works of scholarship examining the role of the Nazi leadership, Surviving Hitler focuses more on the incredible pressures that Nazism exerted on individuals and how they reacted.

To this end we have tried to use as much original first hand material as possible. Surviving Hitler includes for example a dramatic first hand account of the secret negotiations in wartime Budapest between the Zionist leadership and Adolf Eichmann; the story of a young German woman who was an inmate at the Theresienstadt concentration camp the day the Red Cross arrived; how a group of central Asian Jews living in Paris bribed the SS to reclassify them as Muslims, and an account of the extraordinary life of Albert Goering, brother of Hermann, who saved dozens of Jews and anti-Nazis.

We hope that readers will find Surviving Hitler as engrossing to read, as we did to research and write.
