Octavo. 287pp. Original red cloth with black lettering on spine. Captivating work on the persecution of the Jews in Nazi Germany, published a year after the Nuremberg Race Laws were introduced. "I cannot believe that the hysterical nationalism which has swept over Germany, violating fundamental principles of civilised human intercourse, and openly menacing the peace of the world, will continue much longer. It is certain that Germany contains a vast multitude of citizens who secretly abhor the barbarities which they are compelled to witness, and in some sense to inflict. We are assured that the Nazi regime is maintained by the Young, and regarded with dismay and dislike by the Old. Certainly it possesses the well-known characteristics of Youth - precipitate and ruthless logic, fierce intolerance, contempt for the lessons of experience, recklessly thorough-going methods. But, even so, there is ground for hope. Youth is generous, quick to learn, quick to unlearn, frank in its repentance, eager to make amends for its wrong-doing. As one who has rather special reasons for holding Germany in high regard, who has an unfeigned admiration for her intellectual achievements, who has often in the past visited with delight her historic cities, and recalled the wonders of her history, I cannot bring myself to believe that the persecution of minorities, and among them specially of the Jews, which now stains the national name, can be more than a passing aberration. The publication of this book will, I think, hasten the return of sanity by making yet more vocal and insistent the protest of the civilised conscience itself, that protest which not even the most passionate nationalism can permanently resist or will finally resent." (Herbert Dunlem, Auckland Castle, February 12th, 1936). Dunlem's passage in the foreword reflects the optimism and sometimes ignorance of foreigners and Germans in regards to Hitler's policies against the Jews. The "passing aberration" lead to the gas chambers and ended with the death of of over 6 million European Jews. Illustrated with b/w reproductions of photographs and few photographic reproductions of pages from Julius Streicher's infamous "Der Stürmer." Head and tail of spine slightly bumped, minor sunning on spine. Dated signature of previous owner on free front endpaper. Tight copy with binding in good+, interior in very good condition.
