Opis: Believe and Destroy: The Intellectuals in the SS War Machine - Christian Ingrao

There were eighty of them. They were young, clever and cultivated; they were barely in their thirties when Adolf Hitler came to power. Their university studies in law, economics, linguistics, philosophy and history marked them out for brilliant careers. They chose to join the repressive bodies of the Third Reich, especially the Security Service (SD) and the Nazi Party's elite protection unit, the SS. They theorized and planned the extermination of twenty million individuals of allegedly 'inferior' races. Most of them became members of the paramilitary death squads known as Einsatzgruppen and participated in the slaughter of over a million people. Based on extensive archival research, Christian Ingrao tells the gripping story of these children of the Great War, focusing on the networks of fellow activists, academics and friends in which they moved, studying the way in which they envisaged war and the 'world of enemies' which, in their view, threatened them. The mechanisms of their political commitment are revealed, and their roles in Nazism and mass murder. Thanks to this pioneering study, we can now understand how these men came to believe what they did, and how these beliefs became so destructive. The history of Nazism, shows Ingrao, is also a history of beliefs in which a powerful military machine was interwoven with personal experiences, fervour, anguish, utopia and cruelty. "This is an important and original study of ideology and experience rather than yet another catalogue of crime, and it therefore offers a different and powerful explanation for how educated men became perpetrators of mass murder." Richard Evans, University of Cambridge "How did highly educated German intellectuals of a certain generation make themselves into believing Nazis, career-minded ideologues, and practitioners of terror? In compelling detail and in a manner consistent with the best accomplishments of recent scholarship, Christian Ingrao guides us astutely and assuredly through this shockingly normalized interior world." Geoffrey Eley, University of MichiganForeword Acknowledgments Glossary PART ONE: The young men of Germany Chapter 1: A 'world of enemies' (I) The outbreak of war The silence of the Akademiker The 'time of troubles': an experience of war? Chapter 2: Constructing networks Places to study Places of association Networks of solidarity Chapter 3: Activist intellectuals The construction of academic knowledge Knowledge and activism (1919-1933) 'Combative science' and SS intellectuals in the Third Reich The shadow of the Great War PART TWO: Joining the Nazis: a commitment Chapter 4: Being a Nazi The foundations of the doctrine The origins of Nazi fervour: planning a sociobiological re-establishment The appropriation of a system of beliefs Chapter 5: Entering the SD Whether to enter the Party or not?
