"A provocative and insightful analysis that sheds new light on one of the most puzzling and historically unsettling conundrums Why the Germans? Why the Jews? Countless historians have grappled with these questions, but few have come up with answers as original and insightful as those of maverick German historian Gotz Aly. Tracing the prehistory of the Holocaust from the 1800s to the Nazis' assumption of power in 1933, Aly shows that German anti-Semitism was--to a previously overlooked extent--driven in large part by material concerns, not racist ideology or religious animosity. As Germany made its way through the upheaval of the Industrial Revolution, the difficulties of the lethargic, economically backward German majority stood in marked contrast to the social and economic success of the agile Jewish minority. This success aroused envy and fear among the Gentile population, creating fertile ground for murderous Nazi politics.Surprisingly, and controversially, Aly shows that the roots of the Holocaust are deeply intertwined with German efforts to create greater social equality. Redistributing wealth from the well-off to the less fortunate was in many respects a laudable goal, particularly at a time when many lived in poverty. But as the notion of material equality took over the public imagination, the skilled, well-educated Jewish population came to be seen as having more than its fair share. Aly's account of this fatal social dynamic opens up a new vantage point on the greatest crime in history and is sure to prompt heated debate for years to come"--… (més)

This book is one of the fastest reads of any, and one of the best. It real fast in spite of having a lot of new information.

The book, by a non-Jewish German author, is about the perplexing question of why the allegedly cultured Germans would be the most vicious in perpetrating the Shoah.

The book teaches that a toxic combination of envy, the unsettled nature of German national identity compared to the very subtle nature of Jewish identity, and relative German underachievement were collectively the genesis of the Shoah. Germany, to be sure, was the birthplace of Beethoven; but that was the exception.

Germany was laggard in creating public schools, and the general population had no tradition of education. The jews, by contrast, had a strong commitment to education. Thus, the Jews advanced rapidly in the professional and increasingly industrial world, where is the average German did not. This helped fuel the resentments and gave rise to the holocaust.

Why the Germans?

By Gavriel D. Rosenfeld
Winter 2015

"The two questions that make up the title of the German scholar Götz Aly’s latest book are the ones that many historians of the Holocaust have been attempting to answer for decades. And as the book’s subtitle suggests, the answer that Aly supplies is not radically new. The novel twist in his argument consists of the way he links envy and race hatred as causal factors: Aly argues that the German people’s “gnawing envy” of the Jews ended up combining “with a collectivist longing for a life among equals” and “paved the way for [the] racial theory” that the Nazis employed in their genocidal assault on the Jews in their own country and beyond."

"Both Confino and Aly remind us of the centrality of anti-Semitism in the Nazi genocide. In doing so they correct the last generation’s tendency to explain the Holocaust as the result of universal, modern forces. What Aly and Confino remind us of so powerfully is that the Holocaust also resulted from the adaptation of historical hatreds to new circumstances."

Da molti anni Götz Aly si interroga sul passato nazionalsocialista e ogni volta arriva a risposte scomode e inquietanti. Chi voglia conoscere meglio la storia tedesca del Novecento deve confrontarsi necessariamente con i risultati delle sue ricerche (fonte: Google Books)

Asks an important question, and gives excellent, well-thought out answers.

It took me a long time to start this book, to read it and to finally write a review. While I greatly admire German culture I cannot fathom how that culture could also produce Hell on earth for people who in the most part considered themselves fellow Germans.
Aly uses, I think, the standard view that the non-Jewish Germans were jealous and envious of Jewish success in making their way in the industrializing 19th and 20th centuries. This success was in part due to Jews living mostly in urban areas where there were more opportunity while the majority of the population was still located in rural areas. However similar situations occurred in other counties and continents without the German descent into deliberate barbarism. Sadly the point(s) as to why the German situation is so unique is not made in this work. ( )
