Wintergreen : suppressed murders by Anna Rosmus( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the same commitment to exposing Nazi crimes that has made her books Against the Stream and Out of Passau so widely read, Anna Elisabeth Rosmus uncovers the wartime fate of foreign workers, their children, prisoners of war, and Jewish citizens in Wintergreen: Suppressed Murders. The renowned human rights activist recounts a horrific story of slave labor, forced abortions, and mass murder that took place in and around her Barvarian hometown. Until Rosmus began her work, the citizens of the region had successfully avoided acknowledging these atrocities for decades." "In Wintergreen, Rosmus documents the treatment of women from Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and other Eastern European countries who were deported to Germany and put to work as forced laborers. She tells how doctors performed abortions - at times without anesthesia - on these women despite the illegality of such practices for German women and strong opposition by the local and highly influential Roman Catholic church. Rosmus describes the mistreatment of infants in so-called children's homes, where they were intentionally fed spoiled food and the mortality rates were notoriously high." "With an impending German surrender, Passau and its environs witnessed additional carnage. Rosmus sheds light on the united effort of the Hitler Youth, secret police, militia, and German Wehrmacht to massacre thousands of Russian prisoners of war who were being held in the region. The Nazis and their sympathizers forced some prisoners to dig their own graves before being shot; others they threw into the Inn River to drown. In nearby Pocking-Waldstadt, Nazis murdered Jews held in a concentration subcamp, dumping some bodies from moving trains and placing others in hastily dug graves. As disturbing as these crimes are, just as unsettling is the local population's ability to gloss over these acts or to believe that they never happened at all."--Jacket

Against the stream : growing up where Hitler used to live by Anna Rosmus( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in German and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Against the Stream tells the story of a committed young woman who overcame fierce resistance to discover and make public the suppressed deeds of her fellow citizens. First published as part of Germany's acclaimed "What I Think" series, this memoir chronicles the intense backlash Rosmus faced in the form of censorship, lawsuits, and death threats. Rosmus's story, which inspired the 1990 Academy Award-nominated film The Nasty Girl, also follows her attempts to bring home Passau's expelled Jews and few Holocaust survivors, and to commemorate the forgotten Jews of Passau. Her story recounts her dedication to uncovering anti-Semitism and to fighting neo-Nazis and Germany's extreme right."--Jacket

Out of Passau : leaving a city Hitler called home by Anna Rosmus( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The provocative memoir by a courageous German scholar forced to flee her hometown after uncovering its complicity in Hitler's Nazi regime. Nestled along the Danube in southern Germany, Passau is a pleasant tourist destination known for its historic buildings and scenic views at the intersection of three rivers. But for decades, the small Bavarian city had been suppressing an intimate association with Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich. Born in Passau in 1960, Anna Rosmus discovered those dark secrets as a teenager. In 1994, just before the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the World War II, she set out to commemorate the forgotten Holocaust victims who had died there, expecting little if any controversy. What she encountered instead was an obstructionist city council, a virulently resentful local population, and an unsettling degree of latent anti-Semitism. Eventually the death threats led to her own emigration from Germany to the United States. Rosmus has been hailed by Marc Fisher of the Washington Post as?an intellectual firebrand, a rigorous researcher burning with a passion to tell the story that must be told.? In Out of Passau, she explores not only the disturbing history of her hometown, but also the life-changing fallout that resulted from her determination to recognize those who had lost their lives
