Shelley Baranowski


On her book Nazi Empire: German Colonialism and Imperialism from Bismarck to Hitler

Cover Interview of February 20, 2011

A close-up

A brief introduction summarizes my argument, and in chapter 5 I also summarize Nazi imperialism.

A reader might especially enjoy pages 139-143, chapter 3, which are about Hitler’s conceptions of “living space.” Jewish women and children from Subcarpathian Rus (Carpatho-Ukraine, then part of Hungary) await selection on the ramp at Auschwitz-Birkenau, May 1944.  (Source: United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, photograph #77254, courtesy of Yad Vashem.)
