- The Nuremberg Interviews
Author: Goldensohn, Leon
Publisher: Knopf $ 35 ISBN: 037541469x Date: 2004
During the Nuremberg trials, Dr. Leon Goldensohn-a psychiatrist for the U.S. Army-monitored the mental health of two dozen German leaders charged with carrying out genocide. These recorded conversations have gone largely unexamined for more than fifty years, until Robert Gellately-one of the premier historians of Nazi Germany-made them available to the public in this remarkable collection.
Here are interviews with the likes of Hans Frank, Hermann Goering, Ernst Kaltenbrunner, and Joachim von Ribbentrop-the highest ranking Nazi officials in the Nuremberg jails. Here too are interviews with lesser-known officials essential to the inner workings of the Third Reich. Candid and often shockingly truthful, The Nuremberg Interviews is a profound addition to our understanding of the Nazi mind and mission. - Publisher Marketing.
