The Aryan myth : a history of racist and nationalist ideas in Europe by Léon Poliakov( Book )
24 editions published between 1971 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Nazi Germany between the years 1940 and 1944, proof of your Aryan or Semitic roots meant the difference between life and death. How this inhuman and intrinsically absurd theory of racial superiority originated and how it took hold of the German imagination makes for a fascinating, scholarly study. Tracing the origins of the Aryan Myth in the West, the author shows how in the heyday of nationalism, most European people developed legends glorifying their high born ancestry. He shows how these legends developed into pseudoscientific theories, which treated Europeans as the norm and other peoples as inferior--until in 19th-century Germany they culminated in the concept of a superior Germanic "race" in contrast to the inferior Jewish "race." This cultural study sheds horrifying new light on the philosophy that "justified" the mass extermination of millions of "subhumans" during World War II.--From publisher description

L'Historie est, hélas, féconde en exemples de massacres collectifs. Jamais, toutefois, une tentative d'extermination d'un peuple ne fut aussi systématique que l'élimination des Juifs entreprise par Hitler et le IIIe Reich. Bien des voix, depuis, se sont élevées pour dire l'indicible, pour faire en sorte que l'horreur ne soit jamais atténuée par les années, peut-être même banalisée. Mais, très tôt, un homme réussissait, avec une douloureuse objectivité, à démonter le terrible mécanisme de l'holocauste : Léon Poliakov.Ce processus implacable, il est nécessaire d'en connaitre la nature. aucun peuple, en effet, ne peut être certain qu'il n'en sera plus l'auteur, ou la victime
