    The art of inventing hope : intimate conversations with Elie Wiesel

    Reich, Howard, author.

    The Art of Inventing Hope offers an unprecedented, in-depth conversation between the world's most revered Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, and a son of survivors, Howard Reich. During the last four years of Wiesel's life, he met frequently with Reich in New York, Chicago and Florida--and spoke with him often on the phone--to discuss the subject that linked them: Reich's father, Robert Reich, and Wiesel were both liberated from the Buchenwald death camp on April 11, 1945. What had started as an interview assignment from the Chicago Tribune quickly evolved into a friendship and a partnership. Reich and Wiesel believed their colloquy represented a unique exchange between two generations deeply affected by a cataclysmic event. Wiesel said to Reich, "I've never done anything like this before," and after reading the final book, asked him not to change a word. Here Wiesel--at the end of his life--looks back on his ideas and writings on the Holocaust, synthesizing them in his conversations with Reich. The insights on life, ethics, and memory that Wiesel offers and Reich illuminates will not only help the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors understand their painful inheritance, but will benefit everyone, young or old.

    Becoming Eichmann

    Becoming Eichmann : rethinking the life, crimes, and trial of a "desk murderer"

    Cesarani, David.

    "Adolf Eichmann was at the centre of the Nazi genocide against the Jews of Europe between 1941 and 1945. He was directly responsible for the transporting of over two million Jews to their deaths in Auschwitz-Birkenau and other death camps. Yet he was an obscure figure until his sensational capture by the Israeli Secret Service in Argentina in 1960 and his subsequent trial in Jerusalem." "This biography is the first account of Eichmann's life to appear since the aftermath of his trial. It reveals that the depiction of Eichmann as a loser who drifted into the ranks of the SS is a fabrication that conceals Eichmann's considerable abilities and his early political development." "Drawing on recently unearthed documents, David Cesarani shows how Eichmann became the Nazi Security Service's 'expert' on Jewish matters and reveals his initially cordial working relationship with Zionist Jews in Germany despite his intense anti-Semitism. He explains how new research reveals that the massive ethnic cleansing Eichmann conducted in Poland in 1939-40 formed the crucial bridge to the role he was to play in the deportation of the Jews. And Cesarani controversially argues that Eichmann was not necessarily predisposed to mass murder, exploring the remarkable and largely unknown period in Eichmann's career when he learned how to become a perpetrator of genocide." "At his trial, Eichmann became an icon of the Nazi era. But how representative was he? Cesarani suggests that in Jerusalem he was accused of crimes he did not in fact commit, leaving the world with a grotesque misunderstanding of the man and his murderous career. This challenging study sets the record straight on one of the key figures in the implementation of the 'Final Solution' and offers fresh insights both into the operation of the Third Reich as it descended into genocide and into the making of a perpetrator, a remarkable case-study of moral corruption."--BOOK JACKET.

    Catholicism and the roots of Nazism : religious identity and national socialism

    Hastings, Derek (Derek Keith)

    The author illuminates National Socialism's early ties with Catholicism in the years immediately after World War I, when the movement first emerged. He examines how Catholics played a central role in the Nazi movement before the 1923 Beerhall Putsch. Re-founded in early 1925, the Nazi party failed to regain Support in Catholic Munich. The author charts how the early Catholic orientation of the Nazi movement was eventually replaced by the form of secular-political religion that characterized the Nazis after 1933.
