9780745605579: From Weimar to Auschwitz: Essays in German History

In this book, Hans Mommsen addresses a major phenomenon in European history: the crisis of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Nazism. Beginning by focusing on the role of the bourgeoisie in late 19th-century Germany, he goes on to show how the collapse of expectations that had built up during World War I led to resentment and revolt in the Weimar period. He explores how, paradoxically, the middle class began the opposition to the Republic they had created. Issues of democracy and totalitarianism are discussed and throughout the book, Mommson suggests links between the crisis of the 1930s and political practices in contemporary Germany.
