Event Description

PLEASE EMAIL: [email protected] for a link to the livestream.

Although it used terror to ensure consent and complicity, the Third Reich (1933-1945) was still a broadly popular regime, at least among those Germans who were welcomed inside Adolf Hitler’s vision of a racially pure, socially normative and politically reliable ‘national community’. By contrast, Germans forced to become outsiders – due to their beliefs, behaviour or indeed their very being – suffered discrimination, dispossession, violence and, ultimately, murder. Yet, at every stage, they also resisted persecution. Taking a uniquely broad definition of what qualifies as resistance, in recognition of how narrow the horizon of possibilities was for the Nazis’ most hated targets, Semmens outlines a variety of forms of opposition. These include actions that attempted to limit the oppressors’ power by thwarting the Nazis’ policies and intentions, as well as strategies to reduce suffering and make survival possible.
Order Kristin Semmens’ new book, Under the Swastika in Nazi Germany (Bloomsbury, 2023), from the UVic bookstore in advance at this link and pick up your copy at the event (by mentioning “pick up at the event” in the comment section):
