Incredibly Powerful Work,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Racial State: Germany 1933-1945 (Paperback)
Other reviewers already pointed out that this book is very useful and thorough, so I'd just like to add that - even if you are not a history buff and even if you think you already know a lot about Nazi Germany, this book will be a fascinating read. For example, it is one thing to know that certain ethnic groups were persecuted in Nazi Germany, but seeing a leaflet that shows a dark-haired and a light-haired woman and points to the light-haired one as the correct choice of a partner, seeing questionnaires that were used so that officials could decide whether someone should be killed, incarcerated or sterilized, or official instructions and reports on how to deal with the "undesirables"... all this will give you new, visceral realizations about the horrors of this abominable regime.
