The Waffen-SS

A European History

Edited by Jochen Böhler and Robert Gerwarth

  • The first systematic pan-European study of the hundreds of thousands of non-Germans who fought — either voluntarily or under pressure — for the Waffen-SS
  • The transnational perspective allows readers to see what patterns emerged across different European regions
  • Shows how representatives of other nations participated in the Holocaust and major war crimes which were initiated and conducted by the Germans
  • Emphasises that the deployment of non-Germans in the Waffen-SS and German police units has a pre- and post-history
  • Deals with current events and developments such as the increasing Waffen-SS memory cult in e.g. the Baltic States and Ukraine
