In it, Herf postulates that the Nazi government maintained its hold on the German people by controlling the press and claiming that Germans were already being attacked by an international Jewish conspiracy. Hitler and his accomplice asserted that, international Jewry's central agenda was to control and dominate the world.

The sheer magnitude of the Holocaust has commanded our attention for the past sixty years. The extent of atrocities, however, has overshadowed the calculus Nazis used to justify their deeds.

According to German wartime media, it was German citizens who were targeted for extinction by a vast international conspiracy. Leading the assault was an insidious, belligerent Jewish clique, so crafty and powerful that it managed to manipulate the actions of Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin. Hitler portrayed the Holocaust as a defensive act, a necessary move to destroy the Jews before they destroyed Germany.

Joseph Goebbels, Minister of Propaganda, and Otto Dietrich’s Press Office translated this fanatical vision into a coherent cautionary narrative, which the Nazi propaganda machine disseminated into the recesses of everyday life. Calling on impressive archival research, Jeffrey Herf recreates the wall posters that Germans saw while waiting for the streetcar, the radio speeches they heard at home or on the street, the headlines that blared from newsstands. The Jewish Enemy is the first extensive study of how anti-Semitism pervaded and shaped Nazi propaganda during World War II and the Holocaust, and how it pulled together the diverse elements of a delusionary Nazi worldview. Here we find an original and haunting exposition of the ways in which Hitler legitimized war and genocide to his own people, as necessary to destroy an allegedly omnipotent Jewish foe. In an era when both anti-Semitism and conspiracy theories continue to influence world politics, Herf offers a timely reminder of their dangers along with a fresh interpretation of the paranoia underlying the ideology of the Third Reich.

Herf demonstrates in this important book that Hitler and Goebbels and Himmler and other Nazi leaders truly BELIEVED in their anti-Semitic propaganda. The idea or fantasy of the Jew lay at the heart of Nazi ideology. Yet this conclusion had been established in my book, HITLER'S IDEOLOGY. Please see:[...]

What is original about this book is Herf's documentation of how the Nazi fantasy about the Jew was a significant SOURCE OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR as well. Hitler and Goebbels believed that what united the United States and the Soviet Union in their war against National Socialism was that BOTH OF THESE NATIONS WERE CONTROLLED BY THE JEWS.

The Nazis were dominated by a paranoid fantasy. This paranoid fantasy was the source of the World War. Herf hesitantly reaches the conclusion--but does reach it--that the Nazis believed their anti-Semitic ideology. However, I recently lectured with him at a conference and when I told him that the Nazi's belief system was psychotic, he became very disturbed.

He knew that their belief system was insane, but couldn't acknowledge the psychotic dimension of Nazi ideology. I wasn't saying that Hitler and Goebbels were psychotic, but that an ENTIRE SOCIETY MAY BE DOMINATED BY PSYCHOTIC THOUGHT PROCESSES.

There are a lot of films, books, essays, and other stuff centered in World War II and, of course, the Holocaust. But many of these works talk about how it happened, the deportation, the guettos, the concentration camps. How the nazis took charge of "The Final Solution" and to make sure it happened.

But there is one question that is disturbing: why the german people, an educated people, lover of classic music, arts and discipline, could be indifferent and not move one finger while all these atrocities were happening? How the german volk could just accept and even justify the slaughter against the jewish people?

It looks incredible, but the nazi propaganda insisted that Germany was attacked by a "jewish plot". In a few words, Hitler, Goebbels and their propaganda put the whole situation in a position that "if we don't destroy the jews, they will destroy Germany". This was a sistematic brainwash that operate consistently but only reflects the hatred and the paranoia of the fuhrer and his followers.

This book answers all this questions and gives a real idea of how the propaganda works. It contains images of antisemite propaganda including attacks against Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin, calling them "puppets of the jews". Hitler never accepts his responsability of the war, he even blames the british, americans and russians, but most of all, the jews for it as "warmongers" all the time.
There are also, extracts of Goebbels' journals and the strategies that he and his people use to make propaganda work.

This is a revealing and interesting book. I highly recommend it.

There are so many interesting and revealing facts and analyses in this work that it is hard to approach a review without leaving large chunks of information aside. On a personal note I found this one of the most interesting books I have read on the anti-semitism of the period. Moreover, many of the illustrative examples dredged up by Herf still echo sharply today.

The book charts a gradual adaptation of anti-semitism to lubricate the goals of Naziism. Traditional charges of racial impurity and economic shiftiness were reshaped to meet eugenic and planned economy policies. What comes across very strikingly is the sheer amount of anti-semitic propaganda produced by the Nazis. Jews were aligned with Bolshevism, the Allies, International Banking, etc. Typically the enemy was associated directly with any threat to Nazi hegemony.

Herf's very careful annontation of instances was disturbing at times, and as a reader rather than a professional historian of the period, it was hard to set aside one's emotional and ontological revulsion. Very troubling, in the light of Israel's modern travails, is Herf's extended acount of the propagandistic support given by Grand Mufti al-Husseini for the Nazi machine. Herf cites his address at the opening of the Islamic Institute in Berlin in December 1942. The Mufti, consistent with his Nazi hosts' anti-semitism, lays the blame for all evils at the door of Jews. In 1944, Goebbels, having noted the Grand Mufti's "absolutely Nordic appearance", was puzzling over how to the get the "right" propaganda into the Mufti's hands. While the Mufti's intimate collaboration with the Nazis is despicable and shocking it is worthwhile recording that the vast majority of those staffing the extermination programmes were of Christian origin.

After Stalingrad, anti-semitic propaganda ratcheted up a gear - hard to imagine - and Jews were routinely blamed fro the war (even though at this point the Nazis had eliminated half their final total of Jewish victims).

In the end, Herf concurs with other historians that the true extent of knowledge in German society of the Holocasut will probably never be known. It seems that most Germans were indifferent to the fate of Jews, and presumably as the reich fell in on itself that indifference increased. One can't however leave this book without the nagging suspicion that all too often people failed to ask the right questions.

I came across this book whilst looking for some material for a history research essay on how the Nazis portrayed the Jews as both capitalists and communists, two contradictory ideologies. This book was amazingly helpfull. It is a brilliant window into how the nazis perceived the the Jews and hitlers beleif of an international Jewish conspiracy.
A great and wonderful product!!!
