9780415262811: Facing the Nazi Past: United Germany and the Legacy of the Third Reich

Facing the Nazi Past examines how the communist East viewed the events of these years very differently from West Germany during the Cold War. Following the unification of Germany, these contrasting memories of the Third Reich have contributed to a new perspective on this period of German history.

Facing the Nazi Past explores the developments and debates that were symptomatic of this shift towards a more open confrontation with the past, such as:

* the image of resistance to Hitler in united Germany
* changes at concentration camp memorial sites since 1990
* the commemoration of 8 May 1945 in 1995
* how the revelations in Goldhagen's startling book Hitler's Willing Executioners triggered new discussion
* the plans for the construction of a Holocaust Memorial.

Anyone; students, scholars or interested readers, who are involved in the study of European history, will find this an enthralling and informative read.

About the Author:

William Niven is Reader in the Department of German at Nottingham Trent University in England. He has published widely on attempts in East and West Germany to come to terms with the Nazi Past. He is author with J.K.A. Thomaneck of Dividing and Uniting Germany (Routledge, 2000).

Review:

"An excellent book, authoritative...well researched, nuanced and perceptive...remarkably and probably correctly upbeat about the effects of reunification on German public memory.."
-Richard J. Evans, author of "Lying About Hitler
"Appropriately illustrated, this volume is well footed and accompanied by an excellent bibliography."
-Choice September 2002
..."Niven's books is an impressively comprehensive, insightful, and thought-provoking study that deserves a wide audience. [It] is highly readable and more than approprite to assign to undergraduates."
-Gavriel D. Rosenfeld, Fairfield University "German Studies Review, 2003
