Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a subtle and well-documented argument that notably advances our understanding of German popular opinion towards the Nazis' anti-Semitic policies." Inside Out

"A well written and important book that deserves to be widely read and to be placed in every public library." Times Higher Education Supplement

"Bankier's book will be welcomed by anyone teaching German history, Nazism, or the Holocaust, because it is the first book to answer comprehensively the most common student question in any discussion of the Holocaust: What did average Germans know and how did they feel about Hitler's antisemitic propaganda and mass murder?" Choice

From the Back Cover

This compelling and meticulously researched investigation engages with one of the most controversial of questions regarding Hitler's Final Solution: namely, to what degree did the German public actively assent to the genocidal policies of the Nazi regime?

David Bankier address this question with regard to the German public as a whole, drawing upon a wide range of documents and sources, including the extensive files of the Nazi security services, diplomatic and Allied intelligence materials, the reports of government and party authorities, and eyewitness accounts. Much of this material has never previously been brought to the light of day.

The Germans and the Final Solution stand as the fullest assessment to date of the attitudes of the German public to the Nazi policy of antisemitism and its genocidal conclusion. David Bankier's pathbreaking work will be widely read by scholars and students of contemporary European Jewish history and the history of Nazi Germany.

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Jon R. Schlueter on March 27, 2000
Format: Paperback
Bankier has written a trustworthy book about German responses to Nazi antisemitism and propaganda, and the effect of public opinion on the German leadership during World War II. Many books discuss the psychology of persecution in Nazi Germany. Two good ones are Sereny's Into That Darkness and Brown's Ordinary Men. The particular strength of Bankier's book is its breadth of sources. The author draws on, among other sources, regional Gestapo reports, Allied Intelligence Reports and contemporanious observations in letters and diaries. Another strength is its analysis. Bankier certainly holds the Germans accountable. His analysis is profound but it may surprise you by shaking your pre-conceived beliefs. I was especially impressed by his discussion of the wide-spread knowledge in Germany of the "final solution", and Bankier's fascinating analysis of the public reaction to this knowledge.

By S.J.Tagliareni on March 26, 2012
Format: Paperback
One of the lingering questions for all of those who are students of the tragic Nazi era is what did the average person know.It is hard to imagine that at least the realization that all Jews were being persecuted was available to every German. I found the treatment of that question in this work most helpful.
