Two relatively recent books I've found most thoughtful and illuminating on the Nazis themselves are Alon Confino's World without Jews: The Nazi Imagination from Persecution to Genocide (2014 - hardcover selling at Amazon for under $6 right now - the masses of the buying public apparently don't agree with my judgment!) and Johann Chapoutot's The Law of Blood: Thinking and Acting as a Nazi (2018 translation - 3 stars at Amazon, sigh).

After I waddle through PMJ1 I plan the read an earlier title by Chapoutot (2008/2016 translation), which seems both important for our painful topic and timely and relevant: Greeks, Romans, Germans: How the Nazis Usurped Europe's Classical Part.
. . . all right we are two nations . . .

Would probably recommend "Dachau, 1933-1945: The official history" (1975) by Paul Berben as supplementary reading.
Ordered this today.
Shipped and on its way.

A few interesting books are going to be released this year;

Stephen Koch’s “Hitler's Scapegoat: The Boy Assassin and the Holocaust”

Ian Rich’s “Holocaust Perpetrators of the German Police Battalions: The Mass Murder of Jewish Civilians, 1940-1942”

Edward B Westermann’s “Hitler's Ostkrieg and the Indian Wars: Comparing Genocide and Conquest”

John J. Michalczyk‘s “Nazi Law”

I think Westermann was published in 2016. IIRC Rich was last year; I forget why I didn't buy it - too expensive? - I probably should.

Michalczyk looks really interesting and needed. That one I will definitely get - thanks for the heads up!

yeah, I just looked it up, hardback published last year for almost $100 but paperback due out late this year for $35 or so, looks quite promising

OTOH PMJ1 is invaluable, easily equal to the collection of SD public opinion reports in exciting content and value. It is really, really well done.

I looked into some of his other books when I first started researching this deeply. The reviews were bad and copies were cost prohibitive so I never got them.

What do you think about Laurence Rees’ “The Holocaust: A New History“?

I have read his book “Auschwitz : The Nazis & The 'Final Solution” and found it to be an excellent read.

A charity shop a couple of miles away has the book “The Holocaust: A New History” on sale for a very cheap price. I have looked online and it has very good reviews.

I read it. I got it from my library so I didn’t pay anything for it.

I say if it’s a good price then go ahead. Like you I found his book on Auschwitz very good. For a beginner I thought it was a good overall introduction to the subject itself.

I came across a book titled "Beyond the Racial State: Rethinking Nazi Germany" which is published by the Publications of the German Historical Institute.

For those interested, here is a link to the publications of the institute. The books are on sale on Amazon for decent prices.

SM, you may be interested in "The Holocaust and the Germanization of Ukraine" (ISBN-10 1107659450).

I would assume that the Pendas/Roseman collection, Beyond the Racial State, is a strong collection, judging partly from the TOC. But also I saw Roseman give an excellent paper on this topic back in 2012. Thanks for highlighting this publication.

As to The Holocaust and the Germanization of Ukraine, indeed, I am very interested . . . here, here, here, and here.

I was looking on eBay last night and saw Robert Service’s biographies of Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky as a trilogy on sale for £14.99.

It got me thinking, what are your favourite biographies of Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky?

For Lenin, my favourite biography is Louis Fischer’s “The Life of Lenin”. It is an excellent book and covers every aspect of his life. Ronald W. Clark’s “Lenin: The Man Behind the Mask“ did a good job at tackling some of the myths surrounding Lenin’s life. Lenin, like many political figures, was, and is, like marmite - one either loves or hates him. His belief in Marxism was almost like a religious belief for him, he wouldn’t take any criticism of his beliefs and was very headstrong.

For Stalin, it was previously Adam B. Ulam’s “Stalin: The Man and His Era“. However, Stephen Kotkin’s first volume “Stalin: Paradoxes of Power, 1878-1928” and second volume “Stalin: Waiting for Hitler, 1929-1941” have triumphed Ulam’s book. I’m really looking forward to his third volume “Stalin and Miscalculation and the Mao Eclipse” being published. I think like Ian Kershaw’s two volume biography of Hitler, Kotkin’s trilogy of Stalin is going to take some beating when it comes to covering every aspect of Stalin’s extraordinary life.

For Trotsky, my favourite biography is Baruch Knei-Paz’s “The Social and Political Thought of Leon Trotsky”. Trotsky had his faults (like every human), and I’m by no means a Trotskyist (I’m actually the complete opposite politically), but I personally believe that Trotsky would have made a much greater leader than Stalin.

Robert Service’s biographies and Dmitri Volkogonov‘s biographies of the three guys are excellent reads, but for me, the ones I have mentioned triumph their biographies.

I wonder if anyone mentions a biography of any of three guys which I have not read. :P

Huh, you are way ahead of me.
:)

Kotkin’s books are excellent.

I never read a biography of Trotsky or Lenin, most of what I know comes from books like “A People's Tragedy: The Russian Revolution: 1891–1924” by Figes or “The Rise and Fall of Communism” by Brown.

I read “The Court of the Crimson Czar” about Stalin, that was a good one. There have been others, I just can’t think of them off-hand.

I remember watching a debate which included Figes and one of the audience members described the atrocities committed during the Soviet Union as only anecdotal. :shock:

I’m on the waiting list. It’s different yet still connected to our various subjects.
The Overdrive App offered a sample and it seems very intriguing.
Question for Groening by a reporter:
“Mr. Groening, what do you say to those who still deny the Holocaust?”

Groening:
“Nothing. They are hopelessly lost.”


Hhhhhhhmmmmmm, is it possible that Carlo Mattogno is the greatest scholar the world has ever known?

I cannot recommend PMJ1 highly enough. I'm already lamenting the time lag until PMJ2 is published.

Some points: the collection brings home how critical were the spring 1933 laws in shaping Judenpolitik for the next 5 years; the mismatch between Nazi intentions (loaded word I know) and strategies with regard to Germany's Jews already during the '30s; the very important place Judenpolitik occupied in Nazi ideology and politics; the bottoms up participation of many Germans in the persecution of the Jews; and the difficult observers, including those in Jewish organizations, had grasping how extreme the Nazis were on the Judenpolitik, regarding the meaning of their "revolution," and in how they governed.

Picked up a copy of “The Bombing of Auschwitz: Should the Allies Have Attempted it?”
Starting on this next.
Finished this today. I’m at work so I’ll have to give some thoughts on it later.

Both are great books, I read them both a few years ago.

It's up to you which one you want to read first. :dil:

I also bought “The Forgotten Holocaust, the Poles Under German Occupation, 1939-1944.”
Started this today. I’m essentially working all weekend so started during lunch.

Yep, that’s it.

Not sure how I feel about it.

I found it lackluster. I read it a long time ago and it didn't make much of an impression. Not sure why. I think I raced through it . . .
