6 Chesnoff, Richard Z. Pack of Thieves; How Hitler and Europe Plundered the Jews and Committed the Greatest Theft in History
London Weidenfeld and Nicolson 1999 0385487630 / 9780385487634 First Edition Hardcover As New in Near Fine dust jacket 
Only slight wear; DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped, bright, solid book ; B&W Photographs; 1.3 x 9.4 x 6.2 Inches; 325 pages; It was the largest organised robbery in history - the systematic looting of Europe's Jews by the Nazis and most of the nations of Europe: Axis, Allied and Neutral. .... details the full scope of this monumental theft of money, gold, jewels, art, and property that began in Germany with the rise of Hitler, continued through the Holocaust and Occupation of Europe and culminated in a post-war cloaking campaign that stretched from Scandinavia to the Balkans. Chesnoff, who was among the first newsmen to break the story that Swiss banks were still hoarding the assets of Holocaust victims, travelled to eleven countries to research this compelling story of human greed. With direct access to hitherto classified files and through exclusive interviews with bankers, government and Jewish officials, as well as the families of victims, Chesnoff tells a vivid tale that will make the headlines of tomorrow's newspapers. The book reveals new details that many governments and bank officials would prefer to remain secret and describes the detective work used to trace Holocaust assets still hidden in nations such as France, Norway and the Netherlands.

Between Dignity and Despair  Jewish Life in Nazi Germany, Kaplan, Marion A.
9 Kaplan, Marion A. Between Dignity and Despair Jewish Life in Nazi Germany
New York Oxford University Press, USA 1998 0195115317 / 9780195115314 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; Studies in Jewish History; B&W Photographs; 9.10 X 6.40 X 1 inches; 290 pages; "Kaplan tells the story of Jews in Germany not from the hindsight of the Holocaust, nor by focusing on the persecutors, but from the bewildered and ambiguous perspective of Jews trying to navigate their daily lives in a world that was becoming more and more insane. Answering the charge that Jews should have left earlier, Kaplan shows that far from seeming inevitable, the Holocaust was impossible to foresee precisely because Nazi repression occurred in irregular and unpredictable steps until the massive violence of Novemer 1938. Then the flow of emigration turned into a torrent, only to be stopped by the war. By that time Jews had been evicted from their homes, robbed of their possessions and their livelihoods, shunned by their former friends, persecuted by their neighbors, and driven into forced labor. For those trapped in Germany, mere survival became a nightmare of increasingly desperate options. Many took their own lives to retain at least some dignity in death; others went underground and endured the fears of nightly bombings and the even greater terror of being discovered by the Nazis. Most were murdered. All were pressed to the limit of human endurance and human loneliness.Focusing on the fate of families and particularly women's experience, Between Dignity and Despair takes us into the neighborhoods, into the kitchens, shops, and schools, to give us the shape and texture, the very feel of what it was like to be a Jew in Nazi Germany."

10 Karres, Erika V. Shearin A German Tale; A Girl Surviving Hitler's Legacy
Fort Lee NJ Barricade Books 2001 1569802211 / 9781569802212 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Only slight wear; A bright, solid book, DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; 1.1 x 8.8 x 5.8 Inches; 303 pages; A German Tale by Erika V. Shearin Karres is the devastating account of growing up in the aftermath of WWII, told from the perspective of an innocent German girl. In a unique prose style A German Tale vividly recounts the author's childhood in the ruins of Nazi Germany. Her memoir captures the sense of guilt Erika felt growing up as a non-Nazi German, her insistent questioning of her father about his participation in the Holocaust and her constant struggle to survive. It describes in spare, unsentimental language the poverty, hunger and denial suffered by her family in the devastation of World War II. A German Tale casts new light on the suffering endured by the non-Nazi's in Hitler's Germany. "Naturally when we think of World War II our minds jump to the atrocities committed by the Nazis," said the author. "The story that history forgot is of the German children who grew up scrounging for food in Hitler's wake. The war was over, but for us there was no peace."

Hilmar and Odette  Two Stories from the Nazi Era, Koch, Eric

Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1995 0771045573 / 9780771045578 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Only slight wear to book and dust jacket. ; DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. A bright, solid book.; B&W Photographs; 8.35 X 5.59 X 0.94 inches; 228 pages; "Part detective story, part biography, this is the fascinating tale of Hilmar and Odette, both born illegitimately in Germany before the Second World War, both half-Jewish, both brought up by “Aryan” families.Eric Koch, having discovered that his well-to-do family has two skeletons in the closet (Odette is his half-sister and Hilmar is his step-cousin), embarks on a search into his family history and into the very different fates of these two “Half-Jews” who grew into adults as the Nazi party came to power.Hilmar’s adoptive mother discovers he is a Jew, and (despite his being a dutiful, even loving, son) when the opportunity arises denounces him to the Gestapo. Hilmar’s increasingly desperate attempts to escape deportation and stay with the woman with whom he has fallen in love prove futile. He finally falls victim to the machinery of oppression and is sent to Auschwitz.By contrast, Odette, never suspecting that she is part-Jewish, ascends the social ladder and comes to hobnob with the Nazi bohème in her Berlin salon. To ingratiate himself with the right people, her publisher husband dreams up new forms of propaganda to help the Nazi cause.Hilmar and Odette’s parallel stories advance in step through this book, each casting light on the other. And around the fringes of their lives move the spectres of Napoleon, Joseph Goebbels, and Lili Marleen. The narrator’s detective tale becomes a third story, as he probes his family’s past and explores the shadowy territory where personal uncertainties and frailties meet the implacable sophistry of Nazi ideology."

Gift notation and glue remnants on front free end paper ; DJ in Mylar, unclipped. A bright, solid book.; 8.74 X 5.75 X 0.98 inches; 339 pages; "On 21 July 1942, the Nazis reached the small Polish town of Zolkiew. Life for fifteen-year-old Clara Kramer would never be the same. While those around her were either slaughtered or transported, three families found perilous refuge in a hand-dug cellar. Hers was one of them.Living above and protecting them were the Becks. Mrs. Beck had been the families’ maid. Mr. Beck was alcoholic and a self-professed anti-Semite, yet he risked his life to keep his charges safe. But survival under his protection proved to be anything but predictable. Whether it was his nightly drinking sessions with officers of the SS in the room just above or his torrid affair with one of the hiding women, it seemed that Clara and the others often had as much to fear from Beck as they did from the war.Clara’s mother told her to keep a diary while they lived in the bunker in order to fill her time and “so the world would know what happened to us.” Over sixty years later, Clara Kramer has finally turned those diaries into a compelling and heartbreaking memoir — a story of love and memory and survival."

17 Schwarz, Daniel R. Imagining the Holocaust
New York St. Martin's Press 1999 0312173032 / 9780312173036 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Light wear ; DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; 1.19 x 8.54 x 5.86 Inches; 351 pages; In 'Imagining the Holocaust', Daniel R. Schwarz examines widely read Holocaust narratives that have shaped the way we understand and respond to the events of that time. He begins with first person narratives--Wiesel's 'Night' and Levi's 'Survival at Auschwitz'--and then turns to searingly realistic fictions such as Borowski's 'This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen' before examining the Kafkaesque parables of Appelfeld and the fantastic cartoons of Spiegelman's 'Maus' books. Schwarz argues that as we move further away from the original events, the narratives authors use to render the Holocaust horror evolve to include fantasy and parable, and he shows how diverse audiences respond differently to these highly charged and emotional texts.
