A Reflection of the Atrocities Germany Overcame Sep 14, 2005
Germany learned to overcome one of the worst eras of history. Mr. Goldhagen gives an excellent perspective into how human beings can become monsters when they allow hate to rule their lives and subsequently take out that hate on an innocent group of people. Today's America could stand to relearn these lessons and not repeat the same mistakes that they fought against in the past. Our appointed president has shown that there are too many similarities between the United States today and the Nazi Regime to ignore. Just because the victims aren't Jews, doesn't mean what's happening is not fascism. Let's hope that Americans don't become Bush's Willing Executioners. Many countries considered Germany to be liberators as well, but they soon found out otherwise.
A depiction of still not-so-dormant European anti-Semitism Feb 23, 2003
In the past year, European sympathy with the Arab cause and resentment of Israeli incursions against the Palestinians in general and against Yassir Arafat in particular have demonstrated that the derogatory and supposedly discredited views of Jews and Judaism held by the Nazis still lie just beneath the surface of political correctness. In order to combat such persistent bigotry, it is useful if appalling to keep in mind Professor Goldhagen's succinct account of such prejudices. The Nazis, he reminds us, viewed Jews as parasitic work shirkers who lived off others' labor, and who, like Shylock, lent money at usurious rates; as hypermaterialistic, dishonest, and thievish amassers of wealth stolen from the Volk (Michael Milken is believed by many present-day Germans to exemplify this characteristic); and as scheming evildoers who stirred up trouble and internecine strife within otherwise harmonious communities. Even the forged libel entitled "The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion" retains currency in certain European and middle-eastern circles. The prevalence of such views in Nazi Germany made willing collaborators of ordinary Germans, and Professor Goldhagen has performed a valuable service in providing painstaking scholarly documentation of this inarguable historical phenomenon.
