Download or read book After Dachau written by Daniel Quinn and published by Steerforth. This book was released on 2011-03-01 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Daniel Quinn, well known for Ishmael – a life-changing book for readers the world over – once again turns the tables and creates an otherworld that is very like our own, yet fascinating beyond words. Imagine that Nazi Germany was the first to develop an atomic bomb and the Allies surrendered. America was never bombed, occupied, or even invaded, but was nonetheless forced to recognize Nazi world dominance. The Nazis continued to press their campaign to rid the planet of “mongrel races” until eventually the world – from Capetown to Tokyo – was populated by only white faces. Two thousand years in the future people don’t remember, or much care, about this distant past. The reality is that to be human is to be Caucasian, and what came before was literally ancient history having nothing to do with those then living. Now imagine that reincarnation is real, that souls migrate over time from one living creature to another, and that a soul that once animated an American black woman living at the time of World War II now animates an Aryan in Quinn’s new world, and that due to a traumatic accident memories of this earlier incarnation assert themselves. Compared by readers and critics alike to 1984 and Brave New World, After Dachau is a new dystopian classic with much to say about our own time, and the dynamics of human history.

Book Synopsis My Shadow in Dachau by : Dorothea Heiser
Download or read book My Shadow in Dachau written by Dorothea Heiser and published by Boydell & Brewer. This book was released on 2014 with total page 315 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The concentration camp at Dachau was the first established by the Nazis, opened shortly after Hitler came to power in 1933. It first held political prisoners, but later also forced laborers, Soviet POWs, Jews, and other "undesirables." More than 30,000 deaths were documented there, with many more unrecorded. In the midst of the horror, some inmates turned to poetry to provide comfort, to preserve their sense of humanity, or to document their experiences. Some were or would later become established poets; others were prominent politicians or theologians; still others were ordinary men and women. This anthology contains 68 poems by 32 inmates of Dachau, in 10 different original languages and facing-page English translation, along with short biographies. A foreword by Walter Jens and an introduction by Dorothea Heiser from the original German edition are joined here by a foreword by Stuart Taberner of the University of Leeds. All the poems, having arisen in the experience or memory of extreme human suffering, are testimonies to the persistence of the humanity and creativity of the individual. They are also a warning not to forget the darkest chapter of history and a challenge to the future not to allow it to be repeated. Dorothea Heiser holds an MA from the University of Freiburg. Stuart Taberner is Professor of Contemporary German Literature, Culture, and Society at the University of Leeds.
Book Synopsis Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site by : Kai Kappel
Download or read book Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site written by Kai Kappel and published by Deutscher Kunstverlag. This book was released on 2010 with total page 0 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The first complete documentation covering the chapels, churches and convent built on the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site from 1960-1995 and also the Jewish Memorial. These include the Protestant Church of Reconciliation by Helmut Striffler, a major work of postwar architecture in Germany. The work also addresses the problematic planning processes in the first decade after liberation. Dachau, set up in March 1933 as one of the first permanent concentration camps, is still today a synonym for the inhuman National Socialist machinery of oppression,"a precinct whose soil burns us through the soles of our shoes, even if we have never set foot on it" (Ulrich Conrads). Shortly after liberation, there were already plans to contain the concentration camp site in a Christian framework by erecting crosses and churches. These plans were based on the experience of the clergymen previously interned in Dachau. Between 1960 and 1967, at the time when the Concentration Camp Memorial Site was being developed, the Catholic Mortal Agony of Christ Chapel, the Jewish Memorial and the internationally famous Protestant Church of Reconciliation were built in a "place of meditation". Later, the Carmelite Convent of the Precious Blood and the Russian Orthodox Resurrection Chapel were added. The religious memorials on the former Dachau camp site bear witness to a new social departure and to the earnest intention to engage in commemoration. For the first time, this richly illustrated publication presents in one volume both the complex story of their construction and also their works of art. In addition, those who work at Dachau describe the church memorial work on site.
Download or read book Society of Terror written by Paul Neurath and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2015-12-22 with total page 460 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During 1938 and 1939, Paul Neurath was a Jewish political prisoner in the concentration camps at Dachau and Buchenwald. He owed his survival to a temporary Nazi policy allowing release of prisoners who were willing to go into exile and the help of friends on the outside who helped him obtain a visa. He fled to Sweden before coming to the United States in 1941. In 1943, he completed The Society of Terror, based on his experiences in Dachau and Buchenwald. He embarked on a long career teaching sociology and statistics at universities in the United States and later in Vienna until his death in September 2001. After liberation, the horrific images of the extermination camps abounded from Dachau, Buchenwald, and other places. Neurath's chillingly factual discussion of his experience as an inmate and his astute observations of the conditions and the social structures in Dachau and Buchenwald captivate the reader, not only because of their authenticity, but also because of the work's proximity to the events and the absence of influence of later interpretations. His account is unique also because of the exceptional links Neurath establishes between personal experience and theoretical reflection, the persistent oscillation between the distanced and sober view of the scientist and that of the prisoner.
Book Synopsis By Train to Dachau by : Ernst Raubitschek
Download or read book By Train to Dachau written by Ernst Raubitschek and published by ETT Imprint. This book was released on 2015-11-01 with total page 116 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a remarkable book as it is a translation of an account written by the author Ernst Raubitschek soon after World War Two. As the title suggests it tells of his journey to Dachau concentration camp, his stay there and subsequent journey to Buchenwald concentration camp after Kristallnacht and before the outbreak of war. It has been translated by Ernst's daughter Renate Yates. She has included a preface telling of a happy and full life prior to these traumatic events and a postscript describing their emigration to Australia and the new life this family made for themselves in a new country. The detailed descriptions written in this account stand as testament to the abhorrent behaviour, cruelty and antisemitism to which Austrian Jews were subjected even before the start of the war.

Download or read book Ilse's Fate written by David O. Solmitz and published by Page Publishing Inc. This book was released on 2015-08-07 with total page 372 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ilse’s Fate, a novel takes place in Germany between 1913 and 1945. It incorporates my parents’ experience, their family and friends’ experiences before and during the Nazi Holocaust. The thesis of this fictional tale is that we are all endowed with seeds for good and evil behaviors. Sometimes conditions including insecurity enhance latent bad behavior. For some horrendous conditions evoke good and courageous action. Living a secluded childhood at a manor until age six, until the family lost their estate during World War One, Ilse and her unwelcoming, widowed father move into a small Munich apartment. As a young teenager seeking confidence and acceptance among her peers to survive in a hostile world, she becomes involved in the Nazi movement. Coexisting conflicts between good and evil within her, lead Ilse into heart wrenching experiences that eventually destroy her both emotionally and physically. Throughout the novel she encounters good people as well as uncouth and depraved individuals. The Epilogue documents what transpired to those in Ilse’s Fate who survived the Nazi/Holocaust era. The Afterword details how the experiences of the real people are portrayed through specific characters in the novel. For example, I show how my father’s Report on Dachau, describing his experience as a prisoner at the concentration camp, is portrayed in the story, as well as its impact on his life after Dachau.
Book Synopsis Hell Before Their Very Eyes by : John C. McManus
Download or read book Hell Before Their Very Eyes written by John C. McManus and published by JHU Press. This book was released on 2015-11-16 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The life-altering experiences of the American soldiers who liberated three Nazi concentration camps. On April 4, 1945, United States Army units from the 89th Infantry Division and the 4th Armored Division seized Ohrdruf, the first of many Nazi concentration camps to be liberated in Germany. In the weeks that followed, as more camps were discovered, thousands of soldiers came face to face with the monstrous reality of Hitler’s Germany. These men discovered the very depths of human-imposed cruelty and depravity: railroad cars stacked with emaciated, lifeless bodies; ovens full of incinerated human remains; warehouses filled with stolen shoes, clothes, luggage, and even eyeglasses; prison yards littered with implements of torture and dead bodies; and—perhaps most disturbing of all—the half-dead survivors of the camps. For the American soldiers of all ranks who witnessed such powerful evidence of Nazi crimes, the experience was life altering. Almost all were haunted for the rest of their lives by what they had seen, horrified that humans from ostensibly civilized societies were capable of such crimes. Military historian John C. McManus sheds new light on this often-overlooked aspect of the Holocaust. Drawing on a rich blend of archival sources and thousands of firsthand accounts—including unit journals, interviews, oral histories, memoirs, diaries, letters, and published recollections—Hell Before Their Very Eyes focuses on the experiences of the soldiers who liberated Ohrdruf, Buchenwald, and Dachau and their determination to bear witness to this horrific history.
Book Synopsis Denial and Repression of Anti-Semitism by : Jovan Byford
Download or read book Denial and Repression of Anti-Semitism written by Jovan Byford and published by Central European University Press. This book was released on 2008-06-20 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Bishop Nikolaj Velimirović (1881–1956) is arguably one the most controversial figures in contemporary Serbian national culture. Having been vilified by the former Yugoslav Communist authorities as a fascist and an antisemite, this Orthodox Christian thinker has over the past two decades come to be regarded in Serbian society as the most important religious person since medieval times and an embodiment of the authentic Serbian national spirit. Velimirović was formally canonised by the Serbian Orthodox Church in 2003. In this book, Jovan Byford charts the posthumous transformation of Velimirović from 'traitor' to 'saint' and examines the dynamics of repression and denial that were used to divert public attention from the controversies surrounding the bishop's life, the most important of which is his antisemitism. Byford offers the first detailed examination of the way in which an Eastern Orthodox Church manages controversy surrounding the presence of antisemitism within its ranks and he considers the implications of the continuing reverence of Nikolaj Velimirović for the persistence of antisemitism in Serbian Orthodox culture and in Serbian society as a whole. This book is based on a detailed examination of the changing representation of Bishop Nikolaj Velimirović in the Serbian media and in commemorative discourse devoted to him. The book also makes extensive use of exclusive interviews with a number of Serbian public figures who have been actively involved in the bishop’s rehabilitation over the past two decades.

Book Synopsis America at Dachau by : Chaplain John G. Gaskill
Download or read book America at Dachau written by Chaplain John G. Gaskill and published by Pickle Partners Publishing. This book was released on 2016-07-26 with total page 33 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Harrowing account of U.S. Army chaplain John G. Gaskill of what he witnessed in Dachau. For three months, Gaskill ministered to liberated inmates and imprisoned SS soldiers at Dachau. Every evening for a month, Gaskill and other clergymen held mass funerals for those who died from starvation and disease. Gaskill tore down and kept the German sign forbidding entry to a mass grave on a hill. He replaced it with a cross and a Jewish star. He eventually made German prisoners bury the dead in separate graves in the cemeteries in town. “At incredible Dachau, Chaplain Gaskill arranged for all the multitudinous services of the Ministry and Priesthood to be performed as necessary for many denominations in many different tongues. Although much has already been written about Dachau, this article, giving the experiences and observations of Chaplain Gaskill, paints an exceptionally vivid picture and presents it in a different light.—AUBREY L. BRADFORD Colonel MC Commanding.”
