Why exactly did the Nazis burn the Hebrew Bible everywhere in Germany on November 9, 1938? The perplexing event has not been adequately accounted for by historians in their large-scale assessments of how and why the Holocaust occurred. In this gripping new analysis, Alon Confino draws on an array of archives across three continents to propose a penetrating new assessment of one of the central moral problems of the twentieth century. To a surprising extent, Confino demonstrates, the mass murder of Jews during the war years was powerfully anticipated in the culture of the prewar years. The author shifts his focus away from the debates over what the Germans did or did not know about the Holocaust and explores instead how Germans came to conceive of the idea of a Germany without Jews. He traces the stories the Nazis told themselves - where they came from and where they were heading - and how those stories led to the conclusion that Jews must be eradicated in order for the new Nazi civilization to arise. The creation of this new empire required that Jews and Judaism be erased from Christian history, and this was the inspiration - and justification - for Kristallnacht. As Germans imagined a future world without Jews, persecution and extermination became imaginable, and even justifiable.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Story of an Obsession 7. April 2014
Von Grey Wolffe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
How do you define obsession? Under the Nazis, the Germans were determined to rid the world of the Jews. They spent more material and manpower (except for making war) on the destruction of a ‘people’ to the point where it may have become a factor in the loss of WW2. Even as the massive Soviet offensive was bearing down on the Reich in 1944, precious railway locomotives and rolling stock was used to transport over 400,000 Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz.

How do you explain that one of the most advanced cultures in the world became obsessed with destroying a miniscule part (0.75%) of their population? In 1933 there were 500,000 Jews in Germany out of a population of 66 million. Beginning on January 31, 1933 the Nazis turned the power of their State to liquidating the Jews. In 1944 when there were less than 100,000 Jews left in Greater Germany, Goebbels (the Minister of Propaganda) spent a part of his daily speeches excoriating the Jews.

Why this all-consuming hatred, and how did the Nazis indoctrinate their countrymen to a point where average Germans were ‘happy’ to participate in this destruction. First you stigmatize, then you denigrate, then you humiliate then you segregated, then you obliterate. The Nazis not only put into action their plan to eliminate the Jews from German society, this plan included eradicating them from memory except as a demon destroyed. In some of their first actions against the Jews they destroyed the cultural infrastructure by burning the Torahs (Old Testament) and Synagogues. By 1939 almost every Synagogue in Germany had been destroyed. Many had been leveled and turned into car parks.

But it wasn’t just the Jews in Germany. The 3 million Jews in Poland and the 1.5 million in the Soviet Union that came under German rule were all destroyed. How obsessive, in 1944 when pulling out of Greece, the 2000 Jews on the island of Corfu (a Sephardic remnant from the Jews who had left Spain in 1492) were taken to Auschwitz. Why destroy people who had nothing to do with Germany except that they were the cultural co-religionist of a “hated” people? That’s what this book is about, an unexplainable obsession and how the German people willingly became an accomplice to this genocide.

Well written and documented. Great Read

4.0 von 5 Sternen A highly disturbing view of how genocide can take hold 15. April 2014
Von Fuzzy's Mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Seldom have I read a book that so disturbed me making it difficult to continue but was so compelling that I could not put it down. As a student of WWII and the Holocaust, I thought I understood not only what happened but why it happened. So often ordinary Germans say they did not know, that had they known they might have done differently.
This book knocks the excuses on their proverbial behinds.
Mr. Confino shows how the systematic persecution that was supported by the average German morphed into the Final Solution. It was fine when the lives of Jews were curtailed and trivialized...in fact, it played into the prevailing anti-semitism of Christianity in Europe. It was not unusual to cull Jews from time to time. However, the Nazis took it one step further.
In order to recreate a new "morality" and world, they needed not only to rewrite history and tradition from eliminating the Old Testament (too Jewish!) from Christianity to eliminating Jews from Germany first and Europe thereafter. The complicity of the people, the scholars and the church are horrifying. That there are evil people in the world is no surprise. That so many could endorse and support this is depressing.
This is an important book, well researched and written. However, read it at your own peril. You will never look at Germany or Germans the same way.

1.0 von 5 Sternen More Jewish propaganda from those Marxist fiefdoms called "universities" 19. August 2014
Von Michael Allard Duplantier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Here we go again. Another instance of Jewish self-deception, another stylized cri de coeur, another self-indulgent reflection of the infantilized and unmistakable expression of the Self (indistinguishable from the group) characteristic of Jewish life. "Oy Vey, the world hates us! Da Nazis were zo evil!" Does this kind of thing ever stop? The answer is no. if thousands of years of history is any indication, and it should be (and in a sane world would be), the very reason for being for a Jew is victimhood. It's an ethnic strategy that has been explained in depth by researchers like Kevin B MacDonald, and we, the harried and generally guileless Gentile masses are increasingly becoming privy to the game. The Palestinians sure have learned the truth.

It's a high-risk strategy but it's fraught with danger, because the gulf between Jewish portrayal of Jewish attitudes and life to the Gentile public and the actual reality of Jewish attitudes and behavior as they speak about things in the privacy of their own communities along with it's associated practices is so great that the chance will always be there that a new equilibrium will assert itself, when the reality in all it's titanic hypocritical glory washes over the Gentiles who have been at the receiving end of Jewish hostility, meted out with predictably nasty results.

One would think with all of the ink spilled about how Jews are hated "for no reason", the world would be drowned in Jewish tears by now, but a careful reading of history indicates the deluge has been instead much Gentile blood. Look no further than the Bolshevik revolution and the early years of Soviet history for the vast tidal wave of hatred that more accurately reflects the Jewish will when they are given free reign to exact domination over a people they feel they have a God-given right to rule over after a period of forced quiescence, like under the Czar in Russia. "Chosenness" is not a throwaway phrase, and provides the theoretical framework for what Augustine called libido dominandi, the desire to dominate. The Jews have battened on our societies and refuse to play by the rules. Nietzsche said the following about Jewish survival:

"The Jews are the most remarkable nation of world history because, faced with the question of being or not being, they preferred ... being at any price: the price they had to pay was the radical falsification of all nature, all naturalness, all reality, the entire inner world as well as the outer. ... Considered psychologically, the Jewish nation is a nation of the toughest vital energy which ... took the side of all décadence instincts--not as being dominated by them but because it divined in them a power by means of which one can prevail against `the world.' The Jews are the counterparts of décadents: they have been compelled to act as décadents to the point of illusion.... [T]his kind of man has a life-interest in making mankind sick, and in inverting the concepts of `good' and `evil,' `true' and `false' in a mortally dangerous and world-maligning sense."

This is a brilliant exposition of Jewish influence on society. They choose to survive, but in doing so had to invert a nation's value and "falsify nature", which is why they have always led revolutionary movements, which inspired the Albegenisains, the Hussites, the Cromwellian Puritan's to rebel against the dominant Catholic social order, explicated brilliantly by E Michael Jones in his book The Jewish Revolutionary Movement. And, in the modern period, they have represented the vanguard and committed to an unremitting anti-society campaign under the various banners of communism, feminism, gun-control, abortion, pornography, open borders, multiculturalism, and endless foreign wars for Israel. Does this sound like moral behavior to you?

Yale, should of course be ashamed of publishing a book like this. But Yale and other elite institutions have long since been "made sick" by Jewish influence. The humanities are simply not in the business of serving the purposes of their founders, the European descended peoples of the world, but enslaved to a chaotic anti-nature agenda of destroying Western civilization and in doing so continuing a pathological, ruiness path of poisoning it's own genetic stock, whites.

This will not stop until the Jews are stopped. Jones argues that the Catholic Church had the most humane way of doing this, through the doctrine of "Sicut Judeas non", where a Jew could not harmed or molesteted, his rituals could not be disturbed nor his property vandalized, but, the Jew had no right to subvert the social order. Without the Church's gentle treatment of the world's foremost revolutionaries, it looks like the world is headed to another collision course to disaster. Who fights these wars in the middle East? Who controls American foreign policy and wants war with Putin? Who controls American culture, which is unraveling one of the greatest countries the world has ever seen through decadence and open borders? If you don't know the answer to this you have been spoon-fed misinformation. Read the Occidental Observer.

"A world without Jews" wouldn't my ideal, because I believe all people have a right to exist, but if I choose to just survive under the oppressive thumb of Jewish propaganda and Jewish culture or, alternatively, to have a healthy society free of disease, I know what I would choose.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A World Without Jews was the Nazi twisted vision of ultimate extermination but thankfully the world is now without Nazis! 13. August 2014
Von C. M Mills - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
My wife often chides me for my reading of holocaust material. I continue to do so seeking somehow to explain the unexplainable. How could a society as industrially and culturally advanced as the Germany of Bach, Bruckner, Brahms, Beethoven and Strauss perpetuate such unmitigated horror upon the Jews and much of Europe? While there are no simple (if any) explanations of the rise of Nazism and their cruel regime (1933-45) under the satanic Adolf Hitler there are many theories and new scholarship that deepens our understanding of the house of horrors called Germany in the 19302 and 1940s.
Professor Alon Confino, a faculty member of the University of Virginia, has written a relatively short but insightful interpretation of the causes of the holocaust. He believes:"
a. The Nazis were rootless thugs whose stated goal was the complete elimination of the Jewish people in Europe. They considered the fact that a Jew was born as a crime. A series of cruel laws were passed by the Hitler regime to eliminate Jews from ordinary German life. Jews were not permitted to practice medicine, law or any profession. Jews were excluded from public parks, theatres, sporting events and there rights were systematically taken away from the Hebrew community.
b. The Nazis attacked the Old Testament and Jewish scriptures seeking to erase Jewish contributions to the history of the German nation.
The Nazis, therefore, sought to remove Jews from German life in the present time and to remove their historical legacy. the Nazis wanted to cut Christian roots which sprouted from the Jewish tree.
Confino';s book contains many pictures taken of Jews being persecuted by German citizens in many different communities. Six years of prewar Nazi rule was popular with Aryans who were bitterly anti-Semitic. The book burning of Jewish, liberal and communistic books took place under the eye of Goebbels and the educated academic elite of German university life with approbation and hearty approval. Crystal Night in November 2938 led to the burning and destruction of synagogues, torah scrolls and other Jewish sacred writing. Thousands of Jews were murdered and sent to extermination camps.
Confino has produced a chilling and horrid picture of the hell of Jewish life under Nazi rule. All right thinking persons hope and pray that such a terrible event as the holocaust never occurs again in human history.
