Description - After Dachau by Daniel Quinn

Daniel Quinn, best-known for his bestseller "Ishmael", once again turns the tables and creates an otherworld that is very like our own, yet fascinating beyond words. In this other world, Nazi Germany was the first to develop an atomic bomb and the Allies surrendered. America was never bombed, occupied, or even invaded, but was nonetheless forced to recognize Nazi world dominance. The Nazis continued to press their campaign to rid the planet of "mongrel races" until eventually the world - from Cape Town to Tokyo - was populated by only white faces. Two thousand years in the future people don't remember, or much care, about this distant past. The reality is that to be human is to be Caucasian, and what came before was literally ancient history having nothing to do with those living. Imagine that reincarnation is real, that souls migrate over time from one living creature to another, and that a soul that once animated an American black woman living at the time of World War II now animates an Aryan in Quinn's new world, and that due to a traumatic accident memories of this earlier incarnation assert itself. Compared by readers and critics alike to "1984" and "Brave New World", "After Dachau" is the new dystopian classic with much to say about the present day, and the dynamics of human history.
