The Third Reich and the Palestine question by Francis R Nicosia( Book )

35 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in English and German and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the Third Reich's policies regarding Palestine and Zionism in the 1930s in the context of traditional German policies in the Middle East and of Nazi ideology. As long as Hitler sought an accommodation with Britain, and Jewish emigration, his policy discouraged Arab nationalism. Alfred Rosenberg warned against Zionism as a link in the international Jewish conspiracy, and the regime opposed the creation of an independent Jewish state. Ch. 3 (pp. 29-49) discusses the Transfer Agreement, the anti-German boycott, and the internal Jewish argument over how to combat Nazi antisemitism. Following the Peel Partition Plan, Hitler decided that emigration to Palestine should continue since he did not believe it would affect the future of Palestine, and he wished to be rid of the Jews of Germany while he prepared for war
Medicine and medical ethics in Nazi Germany : origins, practices, legacies by Francis R Nicosia( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most disturbing aspects of the Nazi era and the Holocaust was the participation of German physicians in human experiments and in mass murder. According to the editors of this volume, German physicians fully understood what the Nazi racial and eugenic research entailed, with many opting to pursue the career opportunities it afforded. "The first three decades of the twentieth century witnessed the growth of the eugenics movement in Europe, North America, and elsewhere," they say. "Unfortunately, the Nazi's translated eugenic principles into a program for the racial purification and moral improvement of the German nation." Confronting these issues from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives, this volume addresses the critical issues raised by the murderous experiments, the motivation of the German medical establishment and its complicity in Nazi crimes, and the impact and legacy of the eugenics movement as practiced in the Third Reich

Zionism and anti-semitism in Nazi Germany by Francis R Nicosia( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a study of the ideological and political relationship between Zionism and anti-Semitism in modern Germany from the nineteenth century through the Third Reich, focusing on the Nazi years between 1933 and 1942. It considers this topic within the context of three contentious issues in post-Holocaust historiography and debate: the nature of modern German anti-Semitism, the decision-making process leading to the Nazi mass murder of the Jews of Europe, and the nature and role of German Zionism in German-Jewish history before the Shoah. This study examines the assault of German anti-Semitism and Nazi Jewish policy on the Jews of Germany, as well as the ideological and political responses of some German Jews, the Zionists, to that assault. It concludes that the approaches of German anti-Semitism and National Socialism to Zionism and the Zionist movement in Germany reflect a relatively consistent ideology that was applied in an inconsistent and often contradictory manner, one that in the end undermined the efforts of German Zionism to achieve fundamental Zionist goals."--Jacket

Jewish life in Nazi Germany : dilemmas and responses by Francis R Nicosia( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and German and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

German Jews faced harsh dilemmas in their responses to Nazi persecution, partly a result of Nazi cruelty and brutality but also a result of an understanding of their history and rightful place in Germany. Their gradual pauperization, the imposed separation from the larger society and culture of their native Germany, and the consequent humiliation and isolation were bitter blows. This volume addresses the impact of the anti-Jewish policies of Hitler's regime on Jewish family life, Jewish women, and the existence of Jewish organizations and institutions and considers some of the Jewish responses

15 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nazi Germany and the Arab world by Francis R Nicosia( Book )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book considers the evolving strategic interests and foreign policy intent of the Third Reich toward the Arabic-speaking world, from Hitler's assumption of power in January 1933 to 1944, a year following the final Axis defeat in and expulsion from North Africa in May 1943. It does so within the context of two central, interconnected issues in the larger history of National Socialism and the Third Reich, namely Nazi geopolitical interests and ambitions and the regime's racial ideology and policy. This book defines the relatively limited geopolitical interests of Nazi Germany in the Middle East and North Africa within the context of its relationships with the other European great powers and its policies with regard to the Arabs and Jews who lived in those areas"--
Nazism, the Holocaust, and the Middle East : Arab and Turkish responses( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given their geographical separation from Europe, ethno-religious and cultural diversity, and subordinate status within the Nazi racial hierarchy, Middle Eastern societies were both hospitable as well as hostile to National Socialist ideology during the 1930s and 1940s. By focusing on Arab and Turkish reactions to German anti-Semitism and the persecution and mass-murder of European Jews during this period, this expansive collection surveys the institutional and popular reception of Nazism in the Middle East and North Africa. It provides nuanced and scholarly yet accessible case studies of the ways in which nationalism, Islam, anti-Semitism, and colonialism intertwined, all while sensitive to the region's political, cultural, and religious complexities
Dokumente zur Geschichte des deutschen Zionismus 1933-1941( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in German and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains the most important archival sources that deal with German Zionism and the work of the Zionist movement in the time between Hitler's seizure of power in 1933 and the year 1941 when the National Socialist state's policy shifted to the total physical annihilation of the Jewish people. The documents reflect the development of the anti-Jewish policies of the Nazi regime and the increasing problems Jews and Jewish communities had in fleeing their persecutors. At the same time, the texts reveal the growing importance of Zionism for German Jews, and their response to the National Socialist environment"--From the publisher's website
