Europe Against the Jews. 1880-1945
Daniel Cohn-Bendit Discusses with the Author Götz Aly (audio recording available, in German)
The Holocaust cannot be explained solely by German history. In both Western and Eastern Europe, hostility towards Jews had increased dramatically since 1880 - propelled by nationalism and social crises. Without diminishing the guilt of the German perpetrators, historian Götz Aly shows how rivalry and envy, discrimination and pogroms have contributed in many places to preparing the ground for deportations and murders. For the first time, modern antisemitism is presented as a cross-border phenomenon.
