Der Holocaust begann an einem dunklen Ort – in Hitlers Kopf: Die Eliminierung der Juden würde das ökologische Gleichgewicht des Planeten wiederherstellen und Deutschland die Ressourcen verschaffen, die es dringend benötigte. Timothy Snyders aufsehenerregendes Buch beginnt damit, wie Hitler die Welt sah. Atemberaubend intensiv schildert Black Earth, was geschah, wie es geschah und warum es geschah. Und es endet mit einer Warnung: Wir sollten uns nicht zu sicher sein. Wir sind nicht so weit entfernt von jenen Ängsten, die den Holocaust ermöglicht haben, wie wir glauben. Wir haben uns daran gewöhnt, den Holocaust als Todesfabrik zu sehen, in Gang gesetzt von Bürokratien des Bösen. Doch als die Gaskammern in Betrieb gingen, waren bereits mehr als eine Million Juden tot: erschossen aus nächster Nähe vor Gruben und Schluchten. Sie wurden in den Todeszonen ermordet, die in einem deutschen Kolonialkrieg im Osten geschaffen worden waren, viele davon auf der fruchtbaren schwarzen Erde, von der die Deutschen meinten, sie würde künftig ihr Überleben sichern. Es hat etwas Beruhigendes zu glauben, der Holocaust sei ein völlig singulärer Vorgang gewesen. Doch Timothy Snyder zeigt, dass wir an einigen der wichtigsten historischen Lehren vorbeigehen, die wir aus dem Holocaust ziehen können, wenn wir nicht sehr genau hinschauen, welche Faktoren und Bedingungen ihn ermöglicht haben. Sein Bestseller Bloodlands war eine innovative Erkundung der Ereignisse in Osteuropa zwischen 1933 und 1945, als die Politik der Nationalsozialisten und der Sowjets den Tod von 14 Millionen Menschen verursachten. Black Earth ist eine nicht weniger eindringliche Auseinandersetzung mit den Ideen und der Politik, die den schlimmsten Massenmord des Jahrhunderts ermöglicht haben: den Holocaust.

Israeli Holocaust Research

An exploration of the development of Holocaust research in Israel, this book ranges from the consolidation of Holocaust research as an academic subject in the late 1940s to the establishment of Yad Vashem and beyond. Research on the story of historiography is often a work on books, on the "final products" that fill academic bookshelves yet, in Israeli Holocaust Research, Boaz Cohen illustrates that the evolution of holocaust research in Israel has a more human element to it. Drawing on knowledge gained through seven years of work in ten major archives in Israel, the author reveals a previously unseen picture of the development of Israeli Holocaust research "from below," and of the social and cultural forces influencing its character. In doing so, a new facet to the picture emerges, of the story beyond the archive and the people who see Holocaust research as their mission and responsibility. This book will be a fascinating addition to the study of Holocaust research and will be of particular interest to students of history, historiography and Jewish studies
