Something New and Fresh to Understanding the Nazi Era
Jill Swenson starts her blog post with the words: It’s no secret, I like history. It offers us lessons about the future. You won’t be surprised then to hear this past year I’ve read a lot of books about the years in Europe leading up to WWII.
“Stolen Legacy” is amongst the new nonfiction books Ms Swenson reviews and recommends.
She is shocked at what she reads of the role of German insurance companies during the Third Reich. Not only did they play a key role in the Aryanization of the German economy long before stormtroopers forced the removal of Jews from their homes and businesses, but they had insurance policies on the concentration camps and profited nicely from the Nazi policies.
She concludes: This book is a testament to dogged determination to find the facts and determine the truth.
