Description
Industrious and inventive, the birthplace of a disproportionate number of Western civilization's great thinkers, writers, scientists, and musicians, Germany had entered the 20th century united, prosperous, and widely admired for its remarkable achievements. But during the 1930s, embittered by one lost war and scarred by mass unemployment, Germany embraced the dark cult of Nazism. Within less than a generation, its great cities lay in ruins and its shattered industries and its cultural heritage seemed beyond saving, while the German people had come to be regarded as villains and destroyers of civilization. Frederick Taylor tells the story of Germany's year zero and what came after, including the initially naive attempt at expunging Nazism from all aspects of German life and the later more practical approach. He explains that, despite almost total destruction, a combination of conservatism, enterprise, and pragmatism in relation to former Nazis enabled the economic miracle of the 1950s. And he reveals how it was only when the children of the Nazi era began to question their parents with increasing violence that Germany began to awake and acknowledge its culpability.
