Pressestimmen'Given the recent headlines about the slave-labor reparations settlement in Germany, this new study from distinguished Holocaust historian Browning is an important event.' Kirkus Reviews 'Browning is a fine historian and his book immensely readable, fascinating, harrowing but wonderfully educative, is a first-rate contribution to Holocaust studies.' A. C. Grayling, Financial Times 'A stream of acerbically humorous, often angry, observations, mostly about the responses of the defeated Germans to their new plight.' John Jacobs, Jewish Chronicle '... an extensive undertaking that Browning manages with admirable clarity ... an important contribution to the most recent research on the Holocaust. The focus of the presentation, the extensive amount of source material, and the comprehensive reception of research literature make it one of the most important recent publications in this field of research.' International Review of Social History
