The 1970 publication of Karl Schleunes's The Twisted Road to Auschwitz was a landmark in Holocaust historiography.

Since the publication of Karl Schleunes' The Twisted Road To Auschwitz in 1970 an almost inconceivably broad variety of scholarly books and articles has dealt with why and how the Holocaust came into being and what kind of mechanisms lay at the bottom of the unimaginable cruelties committed by the Nazi regime against the Jews. From what I have so far read, I think this was true but not a complete analysis.

Describes Nazi antisemitic policy as a political process triggered not only by ideological prejudices and Jew-hatred, but even more by social dynamics inherent to the Nazi movement and by pressures to preserve the unity of the party. Argues that Hitler was often only indirectly involved in anti-Jewish measures requested by Nazi radicals, and that the acceleration of anti-Jewish persecution was due less to ideological pressures than to internal struggles between competing public and party agencies for control over anti-Jewish policy.

The book examines the period 1933-39, ending two years before the first gassings at Chelmno on December 8, 1941. Schlevnes, Karl A. Published by University of Illinois Press (1971).

An outstanding feat of scholarship. I am preparing a book about a family's escape from Germany, and have read far and wide to understand what Jewish families were experiencing in the 1930's – up to Kristallnacht. This is by far the best, most thorough, most reasonable approach I have read.

I am still tripping about the selection of unbelieveable titles I'm able to get at unbelieveably reasonable prices...Hope I live long enough to read all my steals, thanks.

There is nothing which has so defined the world for the last several decades and which will continue to define the world for many decades to come as the concentration camp and the gas chamber. It is the knowledge that man is capable of the systematic and brutal extermination of his fellow man that has shaped the modern world. As Schleunes very poignantly phrases it in the introduction to this book, "if we are to begin to understand ourselves we must somehow come to grips with the reality of Auschwitz." In his book The Twisted Road to Auschwitz, Schleunes offers us an opportunity to make sense of the senseless and to begin the process of coming to grips with this reality.

Before reading Schleunes's book I had a very different picture of "the twisted road to Auschwitz" in mind. It is tempting to want to see the perpetrators of such crimes as superhumanly evil, even as monsters. Schleunes, however, reminds of the reality, that those who created the concentration camps and gas chambers were as human as the rest of us, and that, as humans so often do, they largely bumbled their way into genocide.

Schleunes paints a picture of a perfect storm, a collusion of people, events, and ideas brought together by chance. Here are radical Antisemites of the lower-middle class whose hatred for Jews derives from a combination of culture heritage and envy. Here is a science only vaguely understood and manipulated for propaganda purposes. Here is a continually growing population of Jews. And here is the "Final Solution."

Schleunes's book is a masterful account of "the twisted road to Auschwitz" which hits every bump and dip along the way. This is an important read for all people. It is only through understanding how we ended up there in the first place that we can fulfill the motto oft-repeated sense the Holocaust: "never again."

Dr. Karl A. Schleunes's 1970 book ushered in a new era in historical scholarship concerning the Nazi "Final Solution to the Jewish Question". The book examines the period 1933-39, ending two years before the first gassings at Chelmno on December 8, 1941. This work is cited in almost every major work on the Nazis and was a major catalyst in the explosion of Holocaust scholarship. Published 30 years ago, its impact is still being felt throughout the area of German History. This is a must read for those interested in understanding the events leading to the Holocaust and offers an interesting thesis, namely that the road to Auschwitz was not clearly defined in 1933 upon the accession of Hitler as Chancellor, but that it was a twisted road. Schleunes presents the material in a very clear and concise manner that is easy for nonscholars to read and understand.

Just as a warning, the title is a bit decieving on this book. I imagined an interesting, anecdote filled book that would keep me reading for more. It wasn't. I must also say that it was the most impressive collection on the devopment of Nazism through this time period that I have ever seen. Any information that you could ever want on this subject can be found in this book. The information is very impressive, but the interest level is low.
