"An enlightening and solidly documented book of great value to those who would like to trace the ideolgoical roots behind the most erratic and dramatic politics phases of modern Germany."--"American Political Science Review" "If only because it presents the intellectual and emotional background to National Socialism with rare clarity and penetrating analysis of its several and often sharply contrasting components, the ably written and profoundly interesting book ... would be of importance ...

No ordinary men : Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Hans von Dohnanyi, resisters against Hitler in church and state by Elisabeth Sifton( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the twelve years of Hitler's Third Reich, very few Germans took the risk of actively opposing his tyranny and terror, and fewer still did so to protect the sanctity of law and faith. In No Ordinary Men, Elisabeth Sifton and Fritz Stern focus on two remarkable, courageous men who did - the pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his close friend and brother-in-law Hans von Dohnanyi - and offer new insights into the fearsome difficulties that resistance entailed. (Not forgotten is Christine Bonhoeffer Dohnanyi, Hans's wife and Dietrich's sister, who was indispensable to them both.) From the start Bonhoeffer opposed the Nazi efforts to bend Germany's Protestant churches to Hitler's will, while Dohnanyi, a lawyer in the Justice Ministry and then in the Wehrmacht's counterintelligence section, helped victims, kept records of Nazi crimes to be used as evidence once the regime fell, and was an important figure in the various conspiracies to assassinate Hitler. The strength of their shared commitment to these undertakings - and to the people they were helping - endured even after their arrest in April 1943 and until, after great suffering, they were executed on Hitler's express orders in April 1945, just weeks before the Third Reich collapsed. Bonhoeffer's posthumously published Letters and Papers from Prison and other writings found a wide international audience, but Dohnanyi's work is scarcely known, though it was crucial to the resistance and he was the one who drew Bonhoeffer into the anti-Hitler plots. Sifton and Stern offer dramatic new details and interpretations in their account of the extraordinary efforts in which the two jointly engaged. No Ordinary Men honors both Bonhoeffer's human decency and his theological legacy, as well as Dohnanyi's preservation of the highest standard of civic virtue in an utterly corrupted state

Unser Jahrhundert : ein Gespräch by Helmut Schmidt( Book )

24 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Fangen Sie an, Fritz' - mit diesem Satz beginnt ein Gespräch unter Freunden. Helmut Schmidt und Fritz Stern kennen sich seit vielen Jahren und haben sich im Sommer 2009 zusammengesetzt, um über Themen miteinander zu reden, die ihnen am Herzen liegen: Erfahrungen und Lehren aus der Geschichte, das gemeinsam erlebte Jahrhundert, Menschen, die ihnen begegnet sind. Das Ergebnis ist ein ebenso anregendes wie kurzweiliges, freimütiges und nicht selten witziges Buch, in dem sich der Politiker und der Historiker die Bälle zuspielen, mal im Konsens, mal im Widerspruch, stets auf eine pointierte Darlegung ihrer eigenen Positionen bedacht. Das Spektrum der behandelten Fragen reicht von Bismarck bis Israel, vom Zweiten Weltkrieg bis zum Aufstieg Chinas, vom Rückblick auf die Ära Bush bis zu den überhöhten Boni für Banker - und auch die Anekdoten kommen nicht zu kurz. Zwei kluge alte Männer streifen durch das 20. Jahrhundert und die Welt von heute, und der Leser genehmigt sich eine Prise Weisheit."--Jacket, front inside flap

Keine gewöhnlichen Männer Dietrich Bonhoeffer und Hans von Dohnanyi im Widerstand gegen Hitler by Elisabeth Sifton( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hitlers "Drittes Reich" war die populärste Diktatur des 20. Jahrhunderts. Millionen Deutsche jubelten, während Zehntausende, dann Millionen und schließlich die ganze Welt litt. Das Regime war gerissen genug, die Menschen mit Versprechungen und Schmeicheleien für sich einzunehmen, und brutal genug, sie mit Terror, Folter und Morden das Fürchten zu lehren. Einem solchen Regime Widerstand zu leisten war selten, und es war gefährlich. Zwei höchst außergewöhnliche Männer, Hans von Dohnanyi und sein Schwager Dietrich Bonhoeffer, haben es dennoch getan. Was sie dazu bewogen hat, warum sie von Anbeginn genau wussten, mit wem sie es zu tun hatten, wie sie den Weg zum Handeln fanden und am Ende für ihre Überzeugungen ihr Leben ließen - dem gehen Elisabeth Sifton und Fritz Stern in diesem tief bewegenden, meisterhaft geschriebenen Doppelportrait nach. Sie setzen zwei Helden gleichermaßen ins Recht, von denen der eine weltberühmt ist, während der andere zu unrecht in seinem Schatten steht. Und sie zeigen, was außergewöhnliche Menschen von gewöhnlichen - damals und immer - unterscheidet

Five Germanys I have known by Fritz Stern( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "German question" haunts the modern world: How could so civilized a nation be responsible for the greatest horror in Western history' In this unusual fusion of personal memoir and history, the celebrated scholar Fritz Stern refracts the question through the prism of his own life. Born in the Weimar Republic, exposed to five years of National Socialism before being forced into exile in 1938 in America, he became a world-renowned historian whose work opened new perspectives on the German past. Stern brings to life the five Germanys he has experienced: Weimar, the Third Reich, postwar West and East Germanys, and the unified country after 1990. Through his engagement with the nation from which he and his family fled, he shows that the tumultuous history of Germany, alternately the strength and the scourge of Europe, offers political lessons for citizens everywhere'especially those facing or escaping from tyranny. In this wise, tough-minded, and subtle book, Stern, himself a passionately engaged citizen, looks beyond Germany to issues of political responsibility that concern everyone. Five Germanys I Have Known vindicates his belief that, at its best, history is our most dramatic introduction to a moral civic life
