Dark Journey, Beth A. Griech-Polelle examines the factors that led to the
ascendance of Adolf Hitler during the rebuilding of post–World War I Germany.
Moving from the birth of modern Germany through the First World War, Polelle
then focuses on Hitler’s early years and the creation of the National Socialist
German Workers’ Party. She illustrates how Hitler consolidated
power—resulting in a society divided against itself and at war with a major
portion of the world—and also maintains a special focus on the persecution of
the Jewish population, both inside Nazi Germany and in conquered parts of
Europe. Download and start listening now!
