Created and used as an instrument of coercion and indoctrination, the Nazi language, Nazi-Deutsch, reveals how the Nazis ruled Germany and German-occupied Europe, fought World War II, and committed mass murder and genocide, employing language to encode and euphemize these actions. Written by two scholars specializing in socio-linguistic and historical issues of the Nazi period, this book provides a unique, extensive, meticulously researched dictionary of the language of the Third Reich. It is an important reference work for English- and German-speaking scholars, students, and teachers of the interwar years, the Nazi era, World War II, and the Holocaust. The first and only comprehensive German-English dictionary of the Third Reich language, the book provides clear, concise, expert definitions with background information. Using up-to-date research, the book provides access, in a single volume, to a specialized, charged vocabulary, including the terminology of Nazi ideology, propaganda slogans, military terms, ranks and offices, abbreviations and acronyms, euphemisms and code names, Germanized words, slang, chauvinistic and anti-Semitic vocabulary, and racist and sexist slurs.

The volume is an indispensable tool for research, study, and reading about World War II and the Holocaust.

ROBERT MICHAEL is Professor of European History at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, where he has taught the Holocaust for 25 years. He has published over 50 articles on the Holocaust and anti-Semitism and several books, including The Holocaust Chronicle (1999) and The Holocaust: A Chronology and Documentary (1998). He is a recipient of the American Historical Association's James Harvey Robinson Prize for the most outstanding contribution to the teaching and learning of history in any field (1997). KARIN DOERR teaches German at Concordia University in Montreal, is a research associate at the Montreal Institute for Genocide Studies, and a teacher at the Simone de Beauvoir Institute for Women's Studies. Her latest research involves Holocaust survivors and their recollections of the German language from the Hitler period.
