This powerful, wide-ranging history of the Nazi concentration camp
Mittelbau-Dora is the first book to analyze how memory of the Third
Reich evolved throughout changes in the German regime from World
War II to the present. Building on intimate knowledge of the
history of the camp, where a third of the 60,000 prisoners did not
survive the war, Gretchen Schafft and Gerhard Zeidler examine the
political and cultural aspects of the camp's memorialization in
East Germany and, after 1989, in unified Germany. Through the
continuing story of Mittelbau-Dora, from its operation as a labor
camp for the V-1 and V-2 rockets to its social construction as a
monument, Schafft and Zeidler reflect an abiding interest in the
memory and commemoration of notorious national events.
