Michael  Wildt  (Editor), Christoph  Kreutzmüller  (Editor) - Berlin 1933 - 1945


The first comprehensive history of Berlin under the Nazis

As the capital city of the Reich, Berlin was the main scene of political, social and cultural conflicts. The Nazis may have tried to curb the cosmopolitan atmosphere of this cultural metropolis, yet they were happy to exploit the city – particularly during the Olympic Games – as a figurehead. There were not only companies of world renown based here but also thousands of medium-sized and small business enterprises; on the one hand Berlin was potentially a first-rank defence location, on the other it was a working-class stronghold. As a centre of Jewish life, Berlin was not only particularly affected by the persecution of the Jews but also offered the Jews possibilities of asserting themselves in ways that would have been unthinkable elsewhere.

Renowned historians expertly describe Berlin’s position of pre-eminent political, cultural and economic importance under the Nazis.

"A truly enthralling book, which wends its way through demographic classes and social topics."
