Backing Hitler

Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany

Robert Gellately

  • Provides a complete history of Nazi terror from the foundation of the regime in 1933 to defeat in 1945.
  • Many of the harrowing photographs from these years are seen here for the first time.
  • Reveals the awful truth of the open terror and mass executions of the final months of the regime.
  • Controversially challenges the belief that the German people knew little about the Nazi terror.
  • Considers what the Germans knew about the concentration camps, and in what ways were they involved in the persecution of 'race enemies', slave workers, and social outsiders.
