Everyday Life and the Holocaust: New Digital Primary Sources from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum

Experiencing History, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum's digital portal for primary sources on the Holocaust, has launched a new section of content. "Everyday Life: Roles, Motives, and Choices During the Holocaust" examines how the rise of Nazi Germany and the onset of the Holocaust changed the conditions of everyday life for millions of people.

Psychological "denazification"

Friends, Colleages,

I am hoping that some of you can suggest work that traces the fate of deep identification (tribal/belonging) with Hitler/Nazi Germany over the decades after 1945.  I am aware of the Mitscherlichs' work and related.  I am looking for well detailed and documented work that goes subjectively deep re sustained  inability/unwillingness to move beyond psychological fusion (beyond ideology) with Hitler/nazism, perhaps over the course of a generation.  Maybe longer.

Thanks, best,

Hank Greenspan

Dear Colleagues,

CfP: Workshop - Provenance Research on East Asian Art #3 (Berlin |  Nov 8-9, 2019)

The collecting of art and artefacts from East Asia has been in vogue in the Western world for hundreds of years with the forced opening of China, Japan and Korea from the mid-19th century onwards, creating a market boom that resulted in thousands of objects entering collections worldwide.

Inappropriate Posts

Hoping the H-Holocaust and H-AS editors will make serious review of criteria for appropriate and inappropriate posts.  If the topic was, for example, juxtaposing Nazi Germany with contemporary politics, there have been widely circulated articles by Chris Browning, Debby Lipstadt, and others that speak to this.  Such pieces by outstanding scholars would be a useful model for making such choices.
