By tapping a rich vein of personal testimonies, Hitlerland offers a startlingly fresh perspective on this heavily dissected era. Some of the Americans in Weimar and then Hitler's Germany were merely casual observers, others deliberately blind; a few were Nazi apologists. But most slowly began to understand the horror of what was unfolding, even when they found it difficult to grasp the breadth of the catastrophe. The most perceptive of these Americans helped their reluctant countrymen begin to understand the nature of Nazi Germany as it ruthlessly eliminated political opponents, instilled hatred of Jews and anyone deemed a member of an inferior race, and readied its military and its people for a war for global domination.--From publisher description. 600 10 Hitler, Adolf,|d1889-1945. 650 0 Nazis|xHistory. 650 0 Americans|zGermany|vBiography. 650 0 World War, 1939-1945|vPersonal narratives, American. 650 0 World War, 1939-1945|xSocial aspects|zGermany. 651 0 Germany|xPolitics and government|y1918-1933. 651 0 Germany|xPolitics and government|y1933-1945. 651 0 Germany|xSocial conditions|y1918-1933. 651 0 Germany|xSocial conditions|y1933-1945. 655 7 Biographies.|2lcgft 655 7 Personal narratives.|2lcgft 902 190130 907 .b12428206|bmulti|c- 945 MARCIVE - Processed 20190821 991 dks 994 C0|bVCN 998 |b1|c121112|dm|ea |f-|g0
