Nazi Policy, Jewish Workers, German Killers focuses on controversial issues in current Holocaust scholarship. How did Nazi Jewish policy evolve during the first years of the war? When did the Nazi regime cross the historic watershed from population expulsion and decimation ("ethnic cleansing") to total and systematic extermination? How did Nazi authorities attempt to reconcile policies of expulsion and extermination with the wartime urge to exploit Jewish labor? How were Jewish workers impacted? What role did local authorities play in shaping Nazi policy? What more can we learn about the mindset and behavior of the local perpetrators? Using new evidence, this book attempts to shed light on these important questions. Christopher R. Browning is the Frank Porter Graham Professor of History at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. He is the author of The Path to Genocide (Cambridge University Press 1992) and Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland, which received the Jewish National Book Award.

Industry Reviews

'Given the recent headlines about the slave-labor reparations settlement in Germany, this new study from distinguished Holocaust historian Browning is an important event.' Kirkus Reviews 'Browning is a fine historian and his book immensely readable, fascinating, harrowing but wonderfully educative, is a first-rate contribution to Holocaust studies.' A. C. Grayling, Financial Times 'A stream of acerbically humorous, often angry, observations, mostly about the responses of the defeated Germans to their new plight.' John Jacobs, Jewish Chronicle '... an extensive undertaking that Browning manages with admirable clarity ... an important contribution to the most recent research on the Holocaust. The focus of the presentation, the extensive amount of source material, and the comprehensive reception of research literature make it one of the most important recent publications in this field of research.' International Review of Social History
