Much has been written about Nazi and anti-Jewish policies, about
atrocities of the Wehrmacht, and about the life of the Jews during
the Third Reich. However, relatively little is known about the
behaviour of non-Jewish Germans. This book, published to wide
acclaim in its original edition, shows how many "ordinary Germans"
became involved in what they saw as a legally sanctioned process of
ridding Germany and Europe of their Jews. Bajohr's study offers a
major contribution to our understanding of this process in that it
focuses on one of its most important aspects, namely the gradual
exclusion of Jews from economic life in Hamburg, one of the largest
centres of Jewish life in Europe and one in which many of them had
been part of the Hanseatic patriciate before 1933. The sad
conclusion of this study is that it was not necessarily
antisemitism that motivated "ordinary burghers", but unrestrained
greed that led them to betray their former co-citizens.
