A earlier with out Shadow examines 50 years of German kid's books during which the darkest horrors of the 3rd Reich have mostly remained hidden. The horrors of the 3rd Reich are systematically screened and filtered, permitting the darker, bleaker components of heritage to flee illumination. right here Zohar Shavit explores 345 German books for kids describing the 3rd Reich and the Holocaust, and reveals a stunning distortion of the previous: a recurrent narrative which means that the Germans themselves had no hand within the agony inflicted at the Jews. those books, Shavit argues, have created the fake old lesson that the genuine sufferers of Hitler's crimes have been the German humans themselves.

First released to nice acclaim in Hebrew and now to be had in English, this publication is a warning call for somebody thinking about German kid's literature and its accountability to prior and future.
