Bloodlines: Recovering Hitler's Nuremberg Laws, from Patton's Trophy to Public Memorial Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the end of World War II, an American military intelligence team retrieved an original copy of the 1935 Nuremberg Laws, signed by Hitler, and turned over this rare document to General George S. Patton. In 1999, after fifty-five years in the vault of the Huntington Library in southern California, the Nuremberg Laws resurfaced and were put on public display for the first time at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. In this far-ranging, interdisciplinary study that is part historical analysis, part cultural critique, part detective story, and part memoir, Tony Platt explores a range of interrelated issues: war-time looting, remembrance of the holocaust, German and American eugenics, and the public responsibilities of museums and cultural centers. This book is based on original research by the author and co-researcher, historian Cecilia O'Leary, in government, military, and library archives; interviews and oral histories; and participant observation. It is both a detailed, scholarly analysis and a record of the author's activist efforts to correct the historical record.

Book News Annotation:

Shortly after the June 1999 announcement by the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery that it was releasing original copies of the Nazi Nuremberg Laws for public display, questions began to be raised about whether the Huntington was being entirely forthcoming about how the documents had come be in their collection and the reason for the long years of silence regarding their existence. Originally intending to look narrowly at these questions, the investigation of Platt (emeritus, history, California State U. at Sacramento) and O'Leary (American history, California State U. at Monterey Bay) eventually expanded to the broader questions of wartime looting and General George S. Patton, the relationship between German and American eugenics movements, the public responsibilities of museums, and remembrance of the Holocaust (including that of Platt's own familial history). Eventually, their investigation points to possibly darker motives on the part of the museum than that revealed in their public pronouncements.
