A Spiral of Silence? How Germans talked about the murder of the Jews during the Second World War

Part of the Making Histories Lecture Series in partnership with the Pears Institute for the History of Antisemitism

During 1941-3, the murder of the Jews became well-known in Germany and widely commented on, both in private and public. Historians have widely discussed what this spreading awareness of the genocide meant to German society. In this lecture, Prof Nicholas Stargardt, author of Witnesses of War: Children's Lives under the Nazis, argues that German perceptions of the Holocaust were primarily shaped by their changing views of the war, with their own predicament, rather than that of the Jews, taking centre stage.
