Nazi policy on the Eastern Front, 1941 : total war, genocide, and radicalization by Alex J Kay( Book )
12 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of essays provides readers with the most current interpretations of Germany's military, economic, racial, and diplomatic policies in 1941. With its breadth and its thematic focus on total war, genocide, and radicalization, this volume fills a considerable gap in English-language literature on Germany's war of annihilation against the Soviet Union and the radicalization of World War II during this critical year
Exploitation, resettlement, mass murder : political and economic planning for German occupation policy in the Soviet Union, 1940-1941 by Alex J Kay( Book )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Convinced before the onset of Operation "Barbarossa" in June 1941 of both the ease, with which the Red Army would be defeated and the likelihood that the Soviet Union would collapse, the Nazi regime envisaged a radical and far-reaching occupation policy which would result in the political, economic and racial reorganization of the occupied Soviet territories and bring about the deaths of 'x million people' through a conscious policy of starvation. This study traces the step-by-step development of high-level planning for the occupation policy in the Soviet territories over a twelve-month period and establishes the extent to which the various political and economic plans were compatible."--Publisher's website
Transition to genocide, July 1941 : Einsatzkommando 9 and the annihilation of Soviet Jewry by Alex J Kay( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Journey through America by Wolfgang Koeppen( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This volume by one of the best known German authors of the postwar period, is one of observation, analysis, and writing, and is based on his 1958 trip to the United States. Here the author presents a portrait of the United States in the late 1950s: its major cities, its literary culture, its troubled race relations, its multi-culturalism and its vast loneliness, a motif drawn, in part, from Kafka's Amerika. A modernist travelogue, the text employs symbol, myth, and image, as if the author sought to answer de Tocqueville's questions in the manner of Joyce and Kafka. It is also a meditation on America, intended for a German audience and mindful of the destiny of postwar Europe under many Americanizing influences
