A History of an Obsession: German Judeophobia and the Holocaust

by

A History of an Obsession: German Judeophobia and the Holocaust Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Klaus Fischer charts the tortured history of German-Jewish relations over a millennium, from migration and ghettoization in the Middle Ages to enlightenment and emancipation in the eighteenth century to varieties of anti-Jewish prejudices in the Second Reich to the rise of pathological Judeophobia in the years 1918 to 1933. The aim of the book is to provide a historical explanation for this change in consciousness that began with a religious prejudice, moved to social and political discrimination, and ended up in annihilatory rage.

Book News Annotation:

Reprint of a 1998 book about which Book News wrote: Arguing that while the Holocaust was unique in its scope, it was the product of historical forces that are not necessarily unique to Germany, the author traces the rise of Judeophobia (his revision of the term Anti- Semitism) in Germany as an ideological, delusional psychosis that had roots stretching back to at least the middle ages. The story of Judeophobia is told in chapters devoted to the Second Reich, the early part of the 20th century, the Weimar Republic, and finally the National Socialists. He discusses the Nazi regime as the symptom of a pathology and explores the question of how regular German citizens could have allowed the Holocaust to happen.
