Description - The Nuremberg Interviews by Leon Goldensohn
THE NUREMBURG INTERVIEWS reveals the chilling innermost thoughts of the former Nazi officials under indictment at teh famous postwar trial. The architects of one of history's greatest atrocities speak out about their lives, their careers on the Nazi party and their views on the Holocaust. Their reflections are recorded in a set of interviews conducted by a US Army psychiatrist. Dr Leon Goldensohn was entrusted with monitoring the mental health of the two dozen German leaders charged with carrying out genocide, as well as that of many of the defence and prosecution witnesses. These recorded conversations have gone largely unexamined for more than fifty years. Now Robert Gellatly - one of the premier historians of Nazi Germany - has transcribed ,edited, and annotated thirty three of the interviews, and makes them available to the public for the first time in this volume. ere are the interviews with some of the highest ranking Nazi officials in the Nuremberg jails, including Hans Frank, Herman Goering, Ernest Kaltenbrunner, and Joachim von Ribbentrop. Here too are interviews with lesser known officials who were, nonetheless, essential to the workings of the Third Reich. Go
