Jarausch ☆ 7 review The gripping stories of ordinary Germans who lived through World War II the Holocaust and Cold War partition but also recovery reunification and rehabilitation Broken Lives is a gripping account of the twentieth century as seen through the eyes of ordinary Germans who came of age under Hitler and whose lives were scarred and sometimes destroyed by what they saw and didDrawing on six dozen memoirs by the generation of Germans born in the 1920s Konrad Jarausch chronicles the unforgettable stories of people who not only lived through the Third Reich World War II the Holocaust and Cold War partition but also participa. Jarausch collects between 70 and 80 autobiographies of Germans born in the 1920s and uses these to write a social history of Germany in the twentieth century Continually interesting study of mostly ordinary lives and how they reacted to all the changes from the Weimar Republic to the bringing down of the Berlin Wall in 1989 Jarausch shows how Naziism was aimed at and appealed to the young with the emphasis on marches picnics demonstrations and sharp uniforms Many of the men who contributed their life stories here joined the Nazis to be part of exciting times Jarausch is particularly good on the effect Hitler and the Third Reich had on women Freuently given a pass by historians Jarausch s women were as enthusiastic as the men and they paid a high price when saturation bombing of German cities started and Russian soldiers rampaged in 1945 The post war years are no less interesting The rise from rubble sorting to economic miracle was one can hardly doubt a result of hard graft East Germany and its many challenges are covered well Still it s the uestion of war guilt and the Holocaust that looms over the whole book How did the books subjects deal with it During the war and right through its conclusion most were unwilling to come to grips with this uestion preferring avoidance instead However over time an impressive number experienced a change of view realized they were culpable and committed themselves to a life of civic action and pacifism

Broken Lives characters ✓ 107 summary ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Konrad H. Jarausch Konrad H. Jarausch ☆ 7 review S Why did so many Germans support Hitler through years of wartime sacrifice and Nazi inhumanity How did they finally distance themselves from this racist dictatorship and come to embrace human rights Jarausch argues that this generation's focus on its own suffering often maligned by historians ultimately led to a critical understanding of national identity one that helped transform Germany from a military aggressor into a pillar of European democracyThe result is a powerful account of the everyday experiences and troubling memories of average Germans who journeyed into through and out of the abyss of a dark centur. Good idea of using autobiographical stories to follow people who lived in one of the most disruptive periods in history Born during the Weimar republic immediately following WWI teen years during the depression and the rise of hitler WWII and the following split nations only to see them reunited as they were in retirement Instead of using the autobiographies to tell the history he told the history and briefly referenced someone who did that exact thing Really fascinating history but poorly told Also written from German viewpoint so there were many organizations unknown to me

Broken Lives characters ✓ 107 summary ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Konrad H. Jarausch Konrad H. Jarausch ☆ 7 review Ted in Germany's astonishing postwar recovery reunification and rehabilitation Written decades after the events these testimonies many of them unpublished look back on the mistakes of young people caught up in the Nazi movement In many early enthusiasm turns to deep disillusionment as the price of complicity with a brutal dictatorship fighting at the front aerial bombardment at home murder in the concentration camps becomes clearBringing together the voices of men and women perpetrators and victims Broken Lives reveals the intimate human details of historical events and offers new insights about persistent uestion. The scope is uite a mouthful Germany in the 20th century as seen by the generation born in the 1920ies As such it has many ualities but I would have preferred to know about the autobiography authors For the most they remain names mentioned briefly and it s hard to remember who s who Another 3 Star review here said that instead of letting the authobiographies tell the story the author tells the story and then fits in some names of people where they fit the narrative paraphrase from memory That was my feeling too At times the story is very powerful and gripping how could it not be but overall it becomes too much of a summary referenced by names you recognize but don t exactly remember from where There still is a considerable effort and amount of work behind this book and it s definitely worth reading if you re in the wow the sum total of human experience really is flabbergasting camp with a stomach to match your masochist curiosity But it could have been engaging
