Abstract:

"Germany is now making a legend - the legend of the Third Empire. She is giving it saints and heroes and martyrs. Unlike other legends, this legend is new and burning and contemporary. It fans national pride (suffering from a sense of defeat) with ardent fires, and ... it tends to encourage dislike of other nations. The new Germany, based on racial nationalism, is building a story of the great Renaissance of national life since the collapse of 1918; and it is building it on the foundations of exaltation of German blood and depreciation of what is non-German. Being thorough, as well as passionate, the Germans are making the story they have built not only a matter of song and poem, but also a matter of text-books and educational method. The result is school history-books like that which is analysed in the following pages."--Foreword
