Abstract:

Avers that while historians declare the Holocaust to be a mystery and incomprehensible, resisting any explanation, in fact the Holocaust can be explained. Interprets Nazism as a romantic reaction to the 19th century's Great Change, brought about by liberalism - the Change that had failed to fulfill its promise and had only led to the large-scale pauperization and the collapse of moral. The Germans believed that only they could rescue Europe of this calamity. Jews, with the traits popularly ascribed to them - materialism and selfishness, came to symbolize the horrors of the Great Change. Besides, the Jews symbolized the forces that opposed the German domination - mainly France, England, and America. Contends that Hitler hated symbolic Jews of his mind rather that real Jews; but it was the real Jews who were doomed to genocide. Dismisses the theory "No Hitler - no Holocaust"; the genocide would be impossible without popular support of the Nazi plans.
