Summary:
"This book is a carefully drawn account of how townspeople went about their lives during the Nazi era, reacting to and shaping events. Andrew Stuart Bergerson argues that ordinary Germans did in fact make Germany and Europe more fascist, more racist, and more modern during the 1930s, but they disguised their involvement behind a pre-existing veil of normalcy."
