A brilliant and clear examination of the rise of Hitler and the Nazis to power in 1930s Germany It is chilling to see how uickly and thoroughly a group of thugs terrorised and subjugated a whole countryTowards the end of the book Haffner and his fellow law students were reuired to undergo some military training and of course indoctrination before they could take their final exams an efficient way of ensuring the judiciary was a part of the systemThey were in uniform and of course marching behind a flag with a swastika on it as part of their trainingWhen we came through villages the people on either side of the road raised their arms to greet the flag or disappeared uickly in some house entrance They did this because they had learned that if they did not we that is I would beat them up It made not the slightest difference that I and no doubt others among us ourselves fled into entryways to avoid these flags when we were not marching behind them Now we were the ones embodying an implicit threat of violence against all bystanders They greeted the flag or disappeared For fear of us For fear of meI still feel dizzy when I consider my predicament then It was the Third Reich in a nutshellLater when the group of young men is reuired to listen to one of Hitler s speeches on the radio and at the end they all raised their arms in the salute while singing Deutschland uber alles and the Horst Wessel song we all sang or pretended to do so each one of us the Gestapo of the othersA powerful and gripping book

CHARACTERS â PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Sebastian Haffner Sebastian Haffner ✓ 6 REVIEW READ & DOWNLOAD Geschichte eines Deutschen Die Erinnerungen 1914 – 1933 Er die Wurzeln des Nazismus nicht etwa im 'Fronterlebnis' sondern im Kriegserlebnis des deutschen Schuljungen zu denen er damals zählte Die anschließende Zeit der Weimarer Republik ist geprägt von den Vorboten des Unheils das dann mit den Zeitungsschlagzeilen Hitler zum Reichskanzler berufen hereinbricht Im April 1933 schon folgt der Judenboykott den Hitler und Goebbels so Haffner lakonisch auf dem Obersalzberg bei Tee und Biskuits beschlossen Was danach kam war eine Zeit grau wie ein Hinrichtungshof Deren Vorgeschichte schildert dieses schlicht fesselnde und uneingeschränkt empfehlenswerte Buch Joachim Hohwiele. This is the story of Sebastian Haffner a man who lived in Germany during Hitler s rise to power I loved hearing the story from the perspective of the average German I can t imagine living in such tumultuous times but reading this book gives me a glimpse The best part about it is the fact that it tries to answer two very important uestions how on earth a regime like the Nazis could rise to power and how almost the entire nation where corrupted by them It s a wonderful story that I would recommend to anyone that is the bit interested in that period Remember it s by understanding the past that we can best keep from repeating it

CHARACTERS â PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Sebastian Haffner Sebastian Haffner ✓ 6 REVIEW READ & DOWNLOAD Geschichte eines Deutschen Die Erinnerungen 1914 – 1933 Es gibt Bücher da sitzt man als Rezensent nach der Lektüre hilflos vor einer riesigen Sammlung von Zitaten und weiß nicht wie man alle in seine Besprechung einbauen soll Einer dieser zugegebenermaßen seltenen Fälle ist Geschichte eines Deutschen; Sebastian Haffners Erinnerungen an die Zeit zwischen dem Kriegsausbruch 1914 und dem Machtantritt der Nationalsozialisten strotzen vor zitierfähigen Passagen Doch die Formulierungsfähigkeiten des Autors sind nicht das einzig Herausragende an diesem Band der Inhalt steht ihnen in nichts nach Dessen Aufbau folgt Haffners Linie 20 Jahre deutsche Geschichte aus meiner Pe. Reposting this with tears in my eyes realising the fascist plague has reached the German Bundestag as well I thought what I witness in America was as bad as 2017 can get I was wrongJe l nger dieser Sommer 1933 dauerte umso unwirklicher wurde alles Translated into contemporary time I would say Over the course of the 2017 winter everything became and unreal Haffner growing up and maturing in a Germany increasingly influenced and then taken over by Hitler and his thugs wrote down his thoughts on what happened why it happened and how he and his close relations reacted to it the Story of a German Starting with a chilling sentence claiming that he tells the story of a duel between a strong ruthless state and himself a powerless individual he shows in his erudite prose how he came to form his own opinions on the development of fascism and its spread The passage that haunts me most is a dialogue between himself and his father where he declares that his greatest fear is that war breaks out and he has to fight on the wrong sideHis father opposes him Fighting on France s side would be right for youHaffner tells his father that he believes that to be the only way to save Germany but his father refuses to accept that falling back on all the mistakes the liberals have made in the past resulting in the Hitler regime Haffner still young and energetic rejects that fatalistic approach and uestions his father s attitudeAber dann siehst du gar kein Ziel und keine Hoffnung No goal No hopeAnd the father replies For the moment noWhat a horrible message for the son his own father does not believe in any future has no hope and no solutions just resignation under the worst possible scenario blaming earlier political mistakes for current disastersWhy did Haffner write his book He was not a hero despite the ridiculous probably sales oriented English translation of the story with the title Defying Hitler just an educated decent man who saw what went wrong and decided not to be indifferent He describes the effects of the propaganda machinery on himself and others with frightening honesty how thoughts were deliberately suppressed to adapt to groupthink and mandatory coordinated activities for the greater good of the nation ignoring individual intelligence and choice How certain things were endured to secure personal goals like exams career plans for the future How accepting one step in the chain of events compromised the own conscience and made him vulnerable culpable in his own eyes If I sang that song with the group how could I have refused in the context can I honestly say I am not one of them If I waved the flag how could I have refused in the context can I say I am not supporting the partySo lange der Bann anh lt gibt es fast kein Mittel dagegen History has plenty of examples of mass hysteria functioning like a spell all powerful until the hypnotised person wakes up to the ugly truthHaffner himself went into exile became an emigrant or immigrant depending on the point of view And he raised his voice for the importance of understanding historical processes and emotional responses to stress manipulation and violence He wrote for others to understand so that it may not happen again He described the slow eroding of democracy as witnessed by himself for example through changed paragraphs in general laws each one taking away a grain of what people had considered basic human rights Gradually the exceptions were accepted as normal and citizens got used to a completely new kind of language and law enforcement They stopped fighting it as it fell apart step by step and each step could somehow be justified in a flawed way of course but as a single event not worth the cost of resistance Mass depression and fear ruled the political climate in which Haffner wrote his reflectionsThat is why this book should be reuired reading again for all those who say that the developments in America at the moment are due to liberal mistakes in the past The answer to that is If so so what Who cares It hardly excuses the new serious mistakes which affect not only the voters in the United States but peoples across the globeWe have a responsibility to raise our voices against aggression regardless of whether it is aimed at religion and this is the atheist speaking on behalf of religious freedom as long as the religion does not force others to believe and commit to specific rituals and rules that are only relevant to its particular dogma ethnicity gender or social status And we have to protect our shared environment against policy makers who confuse scientific data with personal opinions and beliefs based on profit When the world is taken hostage by people with a clearly narcissistic criminal agenda we are in the same position as Haffner in the 1930s We can give up like his father or we can speak up like himself We don t have to be heroes but sometimes we have to choose sides I am with Haffner on that you can t be diplomatically standing in the middle where fascism is concerned for its ultimate goal is to destroy diversity and freedom of choice and to force its power on as many facets of life as possible Master bullies need to be resisted that is what teachers try to implement in schools and it applies to the world of so called grown up politics as wellThat was my angry review for this week read Haffner PLEASE
