War Stories: The Search for a Usable Past in the Federal Republic

Robert G. Moeller powerfully conveys the complex tale of the way West Germans recast the new prior after the second one global struggle. He rejects previous characterizations of a postwar West Germany ruled by means of attitudes of "forgetting" or silence in regards to the Nazi prior. He as a substitute demonstrates the "selective remembering" that came about between West Germans throughout the postwar years: specifically, they remembered crimes dedicated opposed to Germans, crimes that—according to a couple modern accounts—were reminiscent of the crimes of Germans opposed to Jews.

Hagglof advised his friend to come to Sweden for a rest but Pfleiderer The Longest Knife  What Hitler Knew  expected that he would be arrested at the frontier. ”29 Pfleiderer eventually returned to the ministry and continued to serve the Reich government. 30 Hagglof’s account helps to explain how some conservatives could continue to work for a government that had committed what they viewed as appalling acts of murder and lawlessness. The sense of fear that pervaded Berlin undoubtedly led some individuals to silence their objections and remain obedient.

On September , the ministry’s Political Division chief received renewed demands from both the secret police and Abwehr for the release and publication of details surrounding the Polish spy ring. With the forthcoming disarmament conference on the horizon, the police and army sought to gain political capital and a relaxation in arms limitations by exposing Polish machinations to the world.

In contrast to Polish Foreign Ministry opinion the Polish General Staff is “fully convinced” that Germany will take no steps which could lead to war with Poland and will seek to resolve the conflict through diplomatic measures. As far as the General Staff understands the French position and view of the French public, it [the general staff ] takes the position that “Poland may in no case be the aggressor,” and therefore it is wished to avoid an expansion of the planned action.
