Why are they Back? Historical Falsification, Political Conspiracy, and the Return of Fascism in Germany
The appointment of Adolf Hitler in January 1933 as Chancellor of Germany was the outcome not of an election, but of a political conspiracy involving a small number of senior military and government officials headed by General Paul von Hindenburg. Its horrific consequences were World War II, the Holocaust and the destruction of tens of millions of lives.
Nearly 75 years after the fall of the Third Reich, the neo-Nazi right has once again become a major political force in Germany. Why Are They Back? analyzes the interaction of high-level political conspirators, media propagandists and right-wing academics at Berlin’s Humboldt University in the present-day resurgence of Nazism and German militarism.
