Suicide in Nazi Germany

Christian Goeschel

  • Illuminates the massive wave of suicides that swept Nazi Germany, including the mass suicides of German Jews during the Holocaust
  • Examines what this can tell us about the peculiar self-destructiveness of the Third Reich and the depths of Nazi fanaticism
  • Shows how suicides among different population groups responded to the social, cultural, economic, and political context of the time
  • Richly grounded in gripping and previously unpublished source material such as suicide notes and police investigations
