The Lynchburg story : eugenic sterilization in America by Stephen Trombley( Visual )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early years of this century, authorities were obsessed with a belief that the "racial stock" of the country was in decline. By the 1930's, over half the states had enacted eugenic sterilization laws, giving states the right to forcibly sterilize citizens they deemed "unfit" to reproduce. This haunting film tells the story of what happened at The Lynchburg Colony for the Epileptic and Feebleminded in Virginia. There, between 1927 and 1972, over 8,000 children and young teenagers were forcibly sterilized. The state claimed they had hereditary defects that would be passed on to their potential offspring: in fact most were simply poor, ill-educated and considered a financial burden on the state. Sterilization victims interviewed today indicate a devastating impact on their lives and a profound loss of self worth. These individual tragedies have a broader political context. The sterilization law declared constitutional in the U.S. in 1927 became the basis of Hitler's eugenics program. It was the beginning of the Holocaust as sterilization gave way to killing undesirables. American biologist, Dr. Harry Laughlin, who drafted the legislation was awarded an honorary doctorate in Germany in 1936 for his contribution to "race hygiene." Goebbels was the guest of honor

Drancy : a concentration camp in Paris, 1941-1944 by Stephen Trombley( Visual )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and French and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drancy: A Concentration Camp in Paris, 1941-1944 is a startling new film which examines in detail how the French authorities arrested and interned more than 74,000 Jews before sending them to Auschwitz. Only 2,500 survived. Drancy explores the structure of the Holocaust in France: how the Nazis brought the French police and gendarmerie under its control, ordering them to conduct massive round-ups of Jews in Paris and other cities; how the Vichy government instituted anti-Semitic laws, without pressure from the Germans; and how French authorities acted to divide the Jewish community, undermining resistance and streamlining the work of the Final Solution in France. Drancy includes interviews with survivors as well as with bystanders who were witnesses. Rare archival footage and photographs round out the documentary. After a 50 year silence, France is beginning to acknowledge its role in the fate of the Jews. This timely film shows why such re-examination is in order
Nuremberg by Stephen Trombley( Visual )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A few months after the end of World War II, with the international community outraged at the excesses committed by Germany, trials against war criminals were convened in Nuremberg, the symbolic seat of Nazism. There was a series of twelve trials, but it was the first that was the most prominent. Top military and governmental figures including Goering, Hess, Von Ribbentrop, and Durnitz were among those first prosecuted. Later trials followed against doctors, bankers, industrialists and others. Entirely composed of historical footage, including some newly discovered archival films, Nuremberg brings to life the challenge of administering justice when crimes are on such a scale. Fifty-five million people had been killed in World War II; seven million civilians in the Soviet Union alone. Although the first trial was concluded successfully with death or imprisonment for those found guilty, the subsequent trials were compromised by Cold War politics. The Soviet Union was now regarded as a threat by its former allies and a reconstructed Germany was to be a buffer. Many imprisoned Germans were pardoned and restored to power if they were considered useful to the West. In the end, the Cold War overturned to American commitment to justice
The Fontana dictionary of modern thought by Alan Bullock( Book )

14 editions published between 1983 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Book jacket - How often are attempts to broaden your knowledge of modern thought frustrated by terms and allusions that you do not understand?

The Fontana Dictionary of Modern Thought remains uniquely capable of helping them to do this
Fifty thinkers who shaped the modern world by Stephen Trombley( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifty Thinkers Who Shaped the Modern World" profiles fifty landmark philosophers, scientists, political and social theorists as well as spiritual leaders whose ideas have defined the age we live in. It offers a crisp analysis of their key ideas, and in some cases a re-evaluation of their importance as we proceed into the 21st century. For the reader who has lain awake fretting over his tenuous grasp of the "Critiques of Immanuel Kant", or his unformed sense of the line of thought that descends from Hegel through Marx to 20th-century Soviet state socialism, or who struggles to call to mind the key strands in the thinking of Edmund Husserl, Michel Foucault, Jacques Lacan and Jacques Derrida - help is at hand. It comes in the comfortingly accessible form of Stephen Trombley's "Fifty Thinkers Who Shaped the Modern World", a concise history of modern thought from the Enlightenment to the present day
