102 GOES, ALBRECHT. The Burnt Offering.
Pantheon Books, New York: . Reprint Edition. Title of Original German Edition - Das Brandopfer. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
This brief story, which takes place during the period of the greatest persecution of the Jews in Germany, has the simplicity of a legend. It brings to life again, with tremendous impact, a tale of guilt and penance, of faith and kindness and self-sacrifice. The author, a pastor, is one of the very few among modern German writers who have dared to sharpen the thorn of German guilt. This is a book unlikely to be forgotten - one of the most moving testimonies of our time. Translated into English from the German by Michael Hamburger.

Alfred A. Knopf, New York: 2002. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
Cuts through the historical and moral fog to lay out the full extent of the Catholic Church's involvement in the Holocaust, transforming a narrow discussion fixated on Pope Pius XII into the long-overdue investigation of the Church throughout Europe.

105 GORDON, SARAH ANN. Hitler, Germans, And The " Jewish Question ".
Princeton University Press, Princeton: 1984. s Softcover. Like New. 
This book probes the background of the ultimately unexplainable evil of our century, the deliberate and unprovoked murder of millions of European Jews--and goes on to explore German reactions to that evil. Depicting the emergence in Weimar Germany of a new type of extreme anti-Semite, of which Hitler was the paramount example, Sarah Gordon discusses a number of related questions about the role of anti-Semitism in the rise of the Nazis and draws on hitherto unexamined Gestapo files, new data on court sentences, and a variety of other sources to describe the tiny numbers of courageous Germans who opposed Nazi anti-Semitism. She analyzes Hitler's own deranged world view, his use of his feelings about Jews as a political tool, and the extent of the German people's knowledge of his intentions and actions; she examines the history of German anti-Semitism from 1870 through the Nazi years; and she indicates several reasons for thinking that anti-Semitism, however virulent in certain individuals and groups, was not the major reason for Nazi electoral successes. No apologia for the German people, this work shows how a minority of extreme anti-Semites coexisted in Germany with the indifferent or fearfully disapproving majority, while the heroic few assumed the extreme risks of opposition. It offers a clear picture of the kinds of people who aided the Jews or publicly criticized their persecution, including surprising evidence of opposition in the Nazi party itself. In addition, it questions widely held beliefs that older Germans, males, Protestants, and the middle classes were disproportionately anti-Semitic; that bluecollar workers were basically immune to anti-Semitism; and that most Nazis were radical anti-Semites. It also discusses such subjects as the attitudes of German churches, the role of the military, and the socio-economic characteristics of Jews in Germany. "In this splendid, dispassionate analysis, Professor Gordon gives the most comprehensive account yet published of the relations between ordinary Germans and Jews from 1870 until 1945."--Virginia Quarterly Review "I know of no other book that brings this material together so searchingly and sensitively, and brings it down to a personal level as well. One cannot read it without being deeply impressed by the author's penetrating judgment and analytical ability."--Peter H. Merkl, University of California at Santa Barbara

106 GOTFRYD, BERNARD. Anton The Dove Fancier And Other Tales Of The Holocaust.
John Hopkins University Press, Baltimore: 2000. 0801863104 / 9780801863103 Expanded Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Winner of a Christopher AwardNominated for the New Visions Award from the Quality Paperback Book Club This collection of extraordinary true stories—including nine stories new to this expanded edition— illuminates the experiences of a young Polish boy before World War II, through the gathering storm of Nazism, into the death camps, to poignant reunions many years later. Here we watch young Bernard break curfew to secure a rare chicken for the High Holidays—only to see it given to the Christian janitor because it is not kosher; we meet Alexandra, a Polish resistance fighter who enlists the teenaged Bernard in the cause but who perishes while he survives; and we share Bernard's fear as he spends one very uncomfortable night—hours after his liberation—in the seemingly sympathetic home of the parents of a young SS officer. "From time to time one comes across a book of true tales that not only has the power to be painfully moving, but also terribly informing about what it was like to survive the Holocaust. Bernard Gotfryd, in his true tales, has given us such a book."—Dimensions "Thirty autobiographical stories whose banal details and well-placed silences haunt long after the book is finished."—Joan Baum, The Independent "Written with integrity and honesty, Anton helps us to recognize human strength and precariousness, and the complexity of human existence. The book rouses our responsibility and makes us face people and history through the specific voices Gotfryd lets us hear, and the specific faces and places he lets us see."—Yasuhiro Tae, Bulletin of the Center for Holocaust Studies "[A] fine collection of 30 true stories, some nostalgic, others heartbreaking, all of them moving."—Jewish Book World "Astonishing and important... quite marvelous... these stories are real pearls."—Oliver Sacks "Bernard Gotfryd... shows himself to be an exemplary man, mild and strong, never desperate, in constant search for goodness even in the most extreme situations. We are grateful to him for this book because it makes us think."—Primo Levi "An important contribution to the literature of memory."—Elie Wiesel "The book gave me a bit of hope about the worst things in us, and that is an achievement."—Norman Mailer "Poignant and painful reading... so immediate that it is as if it... is happening today."—Ruth Prawer Jhabvala Bernard Gotfryd was born in Radom, Poland. During World War II he was involved with the Polish underground until being imprisoned by the Nazis. He spent time in six concentration camps before his liberation from Gusen II in May of 1945. Two years later Gotfryd emigrated to the United States, where he served in the U.S. Army Signal Corps before joining the staff of Newsweek in 1957. He was moved to begin recording his Holocaust memories when he photographed the Pope's visit to Poland in 1983—Gotfryd's first visit to Poland in forty years. Currently he divides his time between writing and photography at his home in Forest Hills, New York.

Simon and Schuster, New York: 1988. 0671657240 / 9780671657246 s Softcover. Good condition. 
In February 1943, four thousand Jews went underground in Berlin. By the end of the war, all but a few hundred of them had died in bombing raids or, more commonly, in death camps. This is the real-life story of some of the few of them - a young mother, a scholar and his countess lover, a black-market jeweler, a fashion designer, a Zionist, an opera-loving merchant, a teen-age orphan - who resourcefully, boldly, defiantly, luckily survived. In hiding or in masquerade, by their wits and sometimes with the aid of conscience-stricken German gentiles, they survived.
