Deux grands noms de l'histoire de l'Allemagne contemporaine dressent une biographie renouvelée du personnage le plus fantasmé du XXe siècle. D'où venait Hitler, quel était son véritable buit et l'a-t-il atteint ? Plus qu'un portrait, c'est un parcours, entre échecs personnels et succès politiques, entre folles obsessions et pragmatisme froid, que retracent Johann Chapoutot et Christian Ingrao. L'une de ses prophéties était :"Il n'y aura plus jamais de novembre 1918 dans l'histoire allemande" ; lui et le peuple allemand ne survivraient pas à la défaite. En déconstruisant méthodiquement le mythe – cette ambition ultime d'Hitler et de Goebbels –, le travail de l'historien peut aider à vaincre une dernière fois le nazisme : Hitler n'était pas un personnage particulièrement remarquable, et pourtant il a su séduire et convaincre ; son projet promettait le bonheur et le règne aux Allemand, et l'ampleur de ses crimes est inédite et documentée. Comment a-t-il pu entraîner toute une population aussi loin dans le meurtre et, in fine, l'autodestruction ? -- 4ème de couverture.

Stalin had never been able to shake off the nightmare of Adolf Hitler. Just as in 1941 he refused to understand that Hitler had broken their non-aggression pact, he was in 1945 unwilling to believe that the dictator had committed suicide in the debris of the Berlin bunker. In his paranoia, Stalin ordered his secret police, the NKVD, precursor to the KGB, to explore in detail every last vestige of the private life of the only man he considered a worthy opponent, and to clarify beyond doubt the circumstances of his death. For months two captives of the Soviet Army--Otto Guensche, Hitler's adjutant, and Heinz Linge, his personal valet--were interrogated daily, their stories crosschecked, until the NKVD were convinced that they had the fullest possible account of the life of the Führer. In 1949 they presented their work, in a single copy, to Stalin. It is as remarkable for the depth of its insight into Adolf Hitler--from his specific directions to Linge as to how his body was to be burned, to his sense of humor--as for what it does not say, reflecting the prejudices of the intended reader: Joseph Stalin. Nowhere, for instance, does the dossier criticize Hitler's treatment of the Jews. Today, the 413-page original of Stalin's personal biography of Hitler is a Kremlin treasure and it is said to be held in President Putin's safe. The only other copy, made by order of Stalin's successor, Nikita Khrushchev, in 1959, was deposited in Moscow Party archives under the code number 462A. It was there that Henrik Eberle and Matthias Uhl, two German historians, found it. Available to the public in full for the first time, The Hitler Book presents a captivating, astonishing, and deeply revealing portrait of Hitler, Stalin, and the mutual antagonism of these two dictators, who between them wrought devastation on the European continent.

This investigation into the Nazi leader’s mindset is “an inherently fascinating study . . . a work of meticulously presented and seminal scholarship”(Midwest Book Review). Adolf Hitler’s virulent anti-Semitism is often attributed to external cultural and environmental factors. But as historian Peter den Hertog notes in this book, most of Hitler’s contemporaries experienced the same culture and environment and didn’t turn into rabid Jew-haters, let alone perpetrators of genocide. In this study, the author investigates what we do know about the roots of the German leader’s anti-Semitism. He also takes the significant step of mapping out what we do not know in detail, opening pathways to further research. Focusing not only on history but on psychology, forensic psychiatry, and related fields, he reveals how Hitler was a man with highly paranoid traits, and clarifies the causes behind this paranoia while explaining its connection to his anti-Semitism. The author also explores, and answers, whether the Führer gave one specific instruction ordering the elimination of Europe’s Jews, and, if so, when this took place. Peter den Hertog is able to provide an all-encompassing explanation for Hitler’s anti-Semitism by combining insights from many different disciplines—and makes clearer how Hitler’s own particular brand of anti-Semitism could lead the way to the Holocaust.

The fascinating untold story of how Nazi architects and planners envisioned and began to build a model “Aryan” society in Norway during World War II Between 1940 and 1945, German occupiers transformed Norway into a vast construction zone. This remarkable building campaign, largely unknown today, was designed to extend the Greater German Reich beyond the Arctic Circle and turn the Scandinavian country into a racial utopia. From ideal new cities to a scenic superhighway stretching from Berlin to northern Norway, plans to remake the country into a model “Aryan” society fired the imaginations of Hitler, his architect Albert Speer, and other Nazi leaders. In Hitler’s Northern Utopia, Despina Stratigakos provides the first major history of Nazi efforts to build a Nordic empire—one that they believed would improve their genetic stock and confirm their destiny as a new order of Vikings. Drawing on extraordinary unpublished diaries, photographs, and maps, as well as newspapers from the period, Hitler’s Northern Utopia tells the story of a broad range of completed and unrealized architectural and infrastructure projects far beyond the well-known German military defenses built on Norway’s Atlantic coast. These ventures included maternity centers, cultural and recreational facilities for German soldiers, and a plan to create quintessential National Socialist communities out of twenty-three towns damaged in the German invasion, an overhaul Norwegian architects were expected to lead. The most ambitious scheme—a German cultural capital and naval base—remained a closely guarded secret for fear of provoking Norwegian resistance. A gripping account of the rise of a Nazi landscape in occupied Norway, Hitler’s Northern Utopia reveals a haunting vision of what might have been—a world colonized under the swastika.

In 1918 Adolf Hitler was penniless: within 25 years he was probably the richest man in Europe. In his fascinating book the author sets out to discover not only the extent of Hitler's fortune but how it was amassed and with whose help. He finds that royalties of Mein Kampf represent only the tip of the iceberg. His publishing company Eher Verlag and his fund Adolf Hitler Spende, which many 'voluntarily' contributed to, turn out to be much more important. We learn how Hitler's attraction to the opposite sex proved hugely lucrative. This book also traces what happened to the property, the funds, the art collection, and other items after 1945 and reveals who is - and who is trying to -profit today from the legacy of Adolf Hitler. Amongst items never before revealed is recently discovered evidence for two of Hitler's bank accounts; the truth about the financing of Hitler's publishing empire; and many other previously undisclosed facts.

I am a woman who grew up, literally, across the street from Adolf Hitler. As I look back upon my life, I can see that much that I am flowed from the powerful historical events that swept through my childhood and adolescence. They sent my life off in a direction that it never would have taken, had Hitler's rise to power not occurred. The most frightening and traumatic events of my youth became the very forces that enabled me to escape with my life from Germany, and opened up to me a whole new world of ideas and unexpected challenges. Encounters with Hitler and the Gestapo Born in Munich, in the middle of a left-wing revolution that raged all around our house, I grew up in a middle-class assimilated Jewish family. My father was a strict authoritarian, my mother, a woman obsessed with appearances who tried to crush my insatiable curiosity and spirit. Rebelling against her, I grew to question everything, to take nothing for granted, and to challenge conventional "truths", all attributes that prepared me well for later becoming a research scientist. Hitler was not a stranger in our neighborhood. Even before his take-over, he often visited an upstairs neighbor in our apartment house, who, it turned out, was his informer about the German Army High Command. When Hitler seized power, we were horrified to discover that his private residence was across the street from ours. Nazi terror engulfed us in 1934 when a grisly massacre of the leaders of the powerful storm troopers took place in our immediate neighborhood. Later that year, I came face to face with Hitler when his convertible slowly entered a roundabout I happened to be riding through on my bike. When I refused to greet him with the obligatory salute of "Heil Hitler," SS officers in a second car began screaming at me to greet the Führer. Terrified then, I became even more so when I later learned that people had been killed for defying to salute Hitler. My most harrowing experience with the Nazis was yet to come. I was summoned to appear before the Gestapo for mysterious reasons. I experienced one of the most agonizing moments of my life when the SS man who took me into a room for interrogation prohibited my father from joining me. At the time, we did not know if we would ever see each other again. Later, we found out that a young Jewish friend had used me, a blond, blue-eyed sixteen year old, as an alibi when he was accused of fraternizing with an Aryan girl. Panicked by this incident, my parents insisted that I leave for Switzerland immediately. Liberation, Education and Underground Work Rebelling at my mother's suggestion that I attend a Swiss finishing school where I would be groomed to become a proper "lady," I told her that instead, I wanted to further my education at a university-affiliated program. We found such a program at the University of Geneva, where I was interviewed by a professor who told me, "You are way too young to come here, but why don't you come anyway?" That professor was Jean Piaget. And so began my career as a psychologist. When three years later, Hitler took over Austria, refugees began to flee to Switzerland, where, mercilessly, most of them were arrested and sent back to certain incarceration in concentration camps or death. A few managed to get to Geneva where they sought shelter in my Austrian boyfriend's apartment and in my own. At great peril to ourselves, we guided these refugees to safety across the border into France. Immigration, War and the Holocaust After my father died in 1937, my mother managed to immigrate to New York where my two brothers had lived for some time. I followed them in 1938, arriving in the midst of the Great Depression with only a few dollars in my wallet. Anti-Semitism was widespread. Fortunately, with the help of a Jewish organization, I was able to obtain a series of scholarships that led to a Ph.D. in psychology from Columbia University. When WW II

A concise and timely account of Hitler’s—and Fascism’s—rise to power and ultimate defeat, from one of America’s most famous journalists. American journalist and author William L. Shirer was a correspondent for six years in Nazi Germany—and had a front-row seat for Hitler’s rise to power. His most definitive work on the subject, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, is a riveting account defined by first-person experience interviewing Hitler, watching his impassioned speeches, and living in a country transformed by war and dictatorship. William Shirer was originally commissioned to write The Rise and Fall of Adolf Hitler for a young adult audience. This account loses none of the immediacy of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich—capturing Hitler’s rise from obscurity, the horror of Nazi Germany’s mass killings, and the paranoia and insanity that marked Hitler’s downfall. This book is by no means simplified—and is sure to appeal to adults as well as young people with an interest in World War II history. “For nearly 100 years William L Shirer has spoken to us of fascism, Nazis, and Hitler . . . [He] tells the unvarnished truth as he experienced it . . . I figured this school-type book wasn’t going to tell me anything new. But when I started reading, I realized that I wasn’t reading for the facts anymore. I listened to his story and heard the urgency in his voice: a voice from nearly 60 years ago telling us the truth about today.” —Daily Kos
