Content Version
Description More than half a century before the mass executions of the Holocaust, Germany devastated the peoples of south-western Africa. With some of the most important essays from the past five years exploring the "continuity thesis," this anthology debates the links between German colonialist activities and the behavior of Germany during World War II. Some contributors argue the country's domination of southwestern Africa gave rise to perceptions of racial difference and superiority at home, building upon a nascent nationalism that blossomed into National Socialism and the Holocaust. Others remain skeptical and challenge the continuity thesis. The contributors also examine Germany's colonial past with debates over the country's identity and history and compare its colonial crimes with other European ventures. Additional issues explored include the denial or marginalization of German genocide and the place of colonialism and the Holocaust within German and Israeli postwar relations. Volker Langbehn teaches German in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at San Francisco State University. Mohammad Salama teaches Arabic in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at San Francisco State University.
