Making Sense of the Americas

Genre: History

"From anti-Reagan riots in West Berlin to pictures of revolutionary Nicaragua, it is often impossible to grasp social protest movements of the 1980s without referring to how they imagined "the Americas". This edited volume is aimed at historicizing the representations of the United States and of Latin America among Western European protesters around that decade. By researching dominant interpretation patterns, practices and symbols within these movements, this book offers a fresh and compelling look at protest in the second half of the 20th century."--Page 4 of cover.

The Politics of Peace

Genre: History

During a television broadcast in 1959, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower remarked that "people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days our governments had better get out of the way and let them have it." At that very moment international peace organizations were bypassing national governments to create alternative institutions for the promotion of world peace and mounting the first serious challenge to the state-centered conduct of international relations. This study explores the emerging politics of peace, both as an ideal and as a pragmatic aspect of international relations, during the early cold war. It traces the myriad ways in which a broad spectrum of people involved in and affected by the cold war used, altered, and fought over a seemingly universal concept. These dynamic interactions involved three sets of global actors: cold war states, peace advocacy groups, and anti-colonial liberationists. These transnational networks challenged and eventually undermined the cold war order. They did so not just with reference to the United States, the Soviet Union, and Western Europe, but also by addressing the violence of national liberation movements in the Third World. As Petra Goedde shows in this work, deterritorializing the cold war reveals the fractures that emerged within each cold war camp, as activists both challenged their own governments over the right path toward global peace and challenged each other over the best strategy to achieve it. The Politics of Peace demonstrates that the scientists, journalists, publishers, feminists, and religious leaders who drove the international discourse on peace after World War II laid the groundwork for the eventual political transformation of the Cold War.

The anti Jewish racist mania of Hitler the Jews in Fritzlar and its boroughs and their few friends

Author: Paulgerhard Lohmann

Genre: History

This work of non-fiction wants to impart knowledge, encourage reflection, and awaken sympathy. It provides information about the anti-Jewish race politics of National Socialism and the increasingly more difficult effects it had on individual Jews in Fritzlar and its surrounding towns year after year. It reports on the few people who helped those Jews who returned from concentration camps and about the de-Nazification process from 1944 to 1948. Additionally, it documents in both words and pictures the different forms of lasting memorials. This book reminds us not only of past peaceful neighborly coexistence and on the growing contempt and oppression of the Jewish citizens, and their consequent expulsion and terrible murder, but also on personal salvation, and the efforts toward forgiveness and atonement. Photos, gravestone inscriptions, family trees, and lists of names will aid in researching Jewish family histories. Dies Sachbuch will Wissen vermitteln, zum Nachdenken anregen und Mitgefühl erwecken. Es informiert über die antijüdische Rassenpolitik des Nationalsozialismus und deren von Jahr zu Jahr härteren Auswirkungen auf die einzelnen Juden in Fritzlar und seinen Ortsteilen. Es berichtet von den wenigen Helfern, von den 1945 aus den KZs zurückkehrenden Juden und von der Entnazifizierung 1944 bis 1948. Ferner dokumentiert es in Wort und Bild verschiedene Formen dauerhaften Gedenkens. Dies Buch erinnert an friedliches Zusammenleben als Nachbarn, doch auch an zunehmende Verachtung und Verdrängung der jüdischen Mitbürger, schließlich an ihre Vertreibung und schreckliche Ermordung, aber auch an Errettung Einzelner, an Bemühen um Verzeihung und Versöhnung. Fotos, Grabsteininschriften, Stammbäume und Namenslisten helfen bei der Erforschung von jüdischen Familiengeschichten.
