28 BROWNING, CHRISTOPHER R. WITH CONTRIBUTIONS BY MATTHAUS, JURGEN. The Origins Of The Final Solution: The Evolution Of Nazi Jewish Policy, September 1939 - March 1942.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London / Yad Vashem, Jerusalem: 2007. 0803259794 / 9780803259799 The Comprehensive History of the Holocaust Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In 1939, the Nazi regime's plans for redrawing the demographic map of Eastern Europe entailed the expulsion of millions of Jews. By the fall of 1941, these plans had shifted from expulsion to systematic and total mass murder of all Jews within the Nazi grasp. The Origins of the Final Solution is the most detailed and comprehensive analysis ever written of what took place during this crucial period—of how, precisely, the Nazis' racial policies evolved from persecution and "ethnic cleansing" to the Final Solution of the Holocaust. Focusing on the months between the German conquest of Poland in September 1939-which brought nearly two million additional Jews under Nazi control—and the beginning of the deportation of Jews to the death camps in the spring of 1942, Christopher R. Browning describes how Poland became a laboratory for experiments in racial policies, from expulsion and decimation to ghettoization and exploitation under local occupation authorities. He reveals how the subsequent attack on the Soviet Union opened the door for an immense radicalization of Nazi Jewish policy—and marked the beginning of the Final Solution. Meticulously documenting the process that led to this fatal development, Browning shows that Adolf Hitler was the key decision-maker throughout, approving major escalation in Nazi persecution of the Jews at victory-induced moments of euphoria. Thoroughly researched and lucidly written, this groundbreaking work provides an essential chapter in the history of the Holocaust. Christopher R. Browning is Frank Porter Graham Professor of History at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. He is the author of numerous books on Nazism and the Holocaust, including Nazi Policy, Jewish Workers, German Killers and Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland. Includes an Index. "Christopher Browning has produced a standard of historical work, which is accordingly characterized by scholarly precision and intellectual honesty."—Gerhard Hirschfeld, Journal of Modern History "Extraordinary. . . . A masterpiece of the historian's art."—Benjamin Schwarz, Atlantic Monthly "[Browning's] massive account is utterly convincing in its historical detail."—Foreign Affairs The definitive work on the road Germany took toward the Final Solution during the crucial first three years of the war."—Istvan Deak, New York Review of Books "Magisterial."—New York Times Book Review "Superb. . . . [Browning] has created an eloquent, painstaking narrative of how the Final Solution evolved."—Joshua Rubenstein, Wall Street Journal History Book Club Main Selection, Book-of-the-Month Club Selection, Military Book Club Selection 2004 National Jewish Book Award, sponsored by the Jewish Book Council, holocaust category winner 2004 "Book of the Year," sponsored by the Atlantic Monthly

36 CONFINO, ALON. A World Without Jews: The Nazi Imagination From Persecution To Genocide.
Yale University Press, New Haven: 2015. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Why exactly did the Nazis burn the Hebrew Bible everywhere in Germany on November 9, 1938? The perplexing event has not been adequately accounted for by historians in their large-scale assessments of how and why the Holocaust occurred. In this gripping new analysis, Alon Confino draws on an array of archives across three continents to propose a penetrating new assessment of one of the central moral problems of the twentieth century. To a surprising extent, Confino demonstrates, the mass murder of Jews during the war years was powerfully anticipated in the culture of the prewar years. The author shifts his focus away from the debates over what the Germans did or did not know about the Holocaust and explores instead how Germans came to conceive of the idea of a Germany without Jews. He traces the stories the Nazis told themselves—where they came from and where they were heading—and how those stories led to the conclusion that Jews must be eradicated in order for the new Nazi civilization to arise. The creation of this new empire required that Jews and Judaism be erased from Christian history, and this was the inspiration—and justification—for Kristallnacht. As Germans imagined a future world without Jews, persecution and extermination became imaginable, and even justifiable. Alon Confino is professor in the department of history at the University of Virginia and at Ben Gurion University, Israel. He lives in Charlottesville, VA.
