Model Nazi

Arthur Greiser and the Occupation of Western Poland

Catherine Epstein

Oxford Studies in Modern European History

  • The story of Arthur Greiser, the man who initiated the Final Solution in Nazi-occupied Poland
  • A compelling biography telling Greiser's story from his early years prior to the First World War, through his years as the Nazi territorial leader of the Warthegau, to his execution trial and execution in postwar Poland
  • Shows how nationalist obsessions, political jealousies, and personal insecurities shaped the policies of a man who held remarkable power in his Nazi fiefdom
  • Confronts the burning question as to why individuals imagine genocide and ethnic cleansing to be solutions to political problems
