Het zijn net mensen

Auteur: Luyendijk
beelden uit het midden-oosten

Vijf jaar lang was Joris Luyendijk correspondent voor het Midden-Oosten. Hij sprak met stenengooiers en terroristen, met taxichauffeurs en professoren, met slachtoffers, daders en hun familie. Hij ondervond aan den lijve dictatuur, bezetting, terreur en oorlog. Hoe meer hij meemaakte, hoe verbaasder hij raakte. Wat gaapte er een kloof tussen wat hij als correspondent ter plekke waarnam, en wat hij daarvan terugzag in de media. In Het zijn net mensen laat Luyendijk met pakkende voorbeelden en vol humor zien hoe de media ons een gefilterd, vervormd en gemanipuleerd beeld van het Midden-Oosten geven.

Hitler's Scientists

Auteur: John Cornwell
Science, war and the devil's pact

In a rich and fascinating history John Cornwell tells the epic story of Germany's scientists from the First World War to the collapse of Hitler's Reich. He shows how Germany became the world's Mecca for inventive genius, taking the lion's share of Nobel awards, before Hitler's regime hijacked science for wars of conquest and genocidal racism. Cornwell gives a dramatic account of the wide ranging Nazi research projects, from rockets to nuclear weapons; the pursuit of advanced technology for irrational ends, concluding with with penetrating relevance for today: the inherent dangers of science without conscience.

Taal: engels


Auteur: Guido Knopp

Vijfenzestig jaar geleden kwam er een einde aan de Holocaust, de uitroeiing van de Europese Joden door de nazi's. Dit boek geeft een indrukwekkend beeld van een zesmiljoenvoudige moord.

Dit boek is de weergave van het onderzoek voor een zesdelige documentaireserie, die wereldwijd is uitgezonden. Twee jaar lang hebben de onderzoekers van teamleider Guido Knopp in meer dan vijftig archieven naar materiaal gezocht. Daarbij zijn nieuwe bronnen ontdekt en gaven nieuwe getuigenissen een andere kijk op gebeurtenissen. Er is gebruik gemaakt van gesprekken met vele Joodse ooggetuigen: overlevenden die aan het eind van hun leven voor het eerst de kracht vonden om getuigenis af te leggen. De serie en het boek stonden onder supervisie van de beroemde nazi-jager Simon Wiesenthal.

I shall Bear witness - Diaries of Victor Klemperer 193-1941

Auteur: Victor Klemperer


taal: engels

A publishing sensation in German, the publication of Victor Klemperer's diaries brings to light one of the most extraordinary documents of the Nazi period.

The son of a rabbi, Klemperer was by 1933 a professor of languages at Dresden. Over the next decade he, like other German Jews, lost his job, his house and many of his friends.

Throughout, he remained loyal to his country, determined not to emigrate, and convinced that each successive Nazi act against the Jews must be the last. Saved for much of the war from the Holocaust by his marriage to a gentile, he was able to escape in the aftermath of the Allied bombing of Dresden and survived the remaining months of the war in hiding.

Throughout, Klemperer kept a diary. Shocking and moving by turns, it is a remarkable and important document.

Illusions of triumphs

Auteur: Mohamed Heikal
An arabic view of the Gulf War

Illusions of Triumph challenges the conventional view that the Gulf war was a crushing victory for international co— operation over a brutal dictator. Mohamed Heikal traces the background to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, and describes the war and its aftermath from a perspective very different to that of the often simplistic reporting of the Western media.

In so doing, he raises many important questions which have been overlooked, or ignored, by Western observers. Why did Saddam Hussein enjoy the support of millions in the Arab and Third Worlds? Why did many Arabs, without necessarily condoning the invasion, feel a degree of sympathy for Iraq’s long- standing complaints about Kuwait? Why did President Bush give the Arab world only forty—eight hours to find an Arab solution to the crisis? Could the war have been avoided? Why did most Arab countries find it impossible to share the West’s euphoria after the defeat of Iraq? And was that defeat as conclusive as it seemed at the time?

Illusions of Triumph is a disturbing, thought-provoking and much—needed analysis of a conflict that, like all wars, was riddled with moral ambiguities and complexities.

Mohamed Heikal is one of the Arab world’s most distinguished journalists and commentators. From 1957 to 1974 he was editor—in-chief of the Cairo daily newspaper Al—Ahram. A close friend of President Nasser, he was also a confidant of President Sadat until the mid-19708, when they disagreed over Sadat’s policies after the 1973 Arab — Israel war. Heikal was among prominent Egyptians arrested and imprisoned by Sadat in September 1981, but he was released two months later, following Sadat’s assassination. Since then he has contributed countless articles to newspapers in the United States, Britain and the Arab world, and has written many books on Middle Eastern affairs. This is the seventh of his books to be published in English.

Kristallnacht 1938

Auteur: Alan E. Steinweis & Alan E. Steinweis

On November 7, 1938, a Jewish teenager, Herschel Grynszpan, fatally shot a German diplomat in Paris. Within three days anti-Jewish violence erupted throughout Germany, initially incited by local Nazi officials, and ultimately sanctioned by the decisions of Hitler and Goebbels at the pinnacle of the Third Reich. As synagogues burned and Jews were beaten in the streets, police stood aside. Men, women, and children - many neighbors of the victims - participated enthusiastically in acts of violence, rituals of humiliation, and looting. By the night of November 10, a nationwide antisemitic pogrom had inflicted massive destruction on synagogues, Jewish schools, and Jewish-owned businesses. During and after this spasm of violence and plunder, 30,000 Jewish men were rounded up and sent to concentration camps, where hundreds would perish in the following months. Kristallnacht revealed to the world the intent and extent of Nazi Judeophobia. However, it was seen essentially as the work of the Nazi leadership. Now, Alan Steinweis counters that view in his vision of Kristallnacht as a veritable pogrom - a popular cathartic convulsion of antisemitic violence that was manipulated from above but executed from below by large numbers of ordinary Germans rioting in the streets, heckling and taunting Jews, cheering Stormtroopers' hostility, and looting Jewish property on a massive scale. Based on original research in the trials of the pogrom's perpetrators and the testimonies of its Jewish survivors, Steinweis brings to light the evidence of mob action by all sectors of the civilian population. Kristallnacht 1938 reveals the true depth and nature of popular antisemitism in Nazi Germany on the eve of the Holocaust.
