Product Overview

This book investigates the anti-Semitic foundations of Nazi curricula for elementary schools, with a focus on the subjects of biology, history, and literature. Gregory Paul Wegner argues that any study of Nazi society and its values must probe the education provided by the regime. Schools, according to Wegner, play a major role in advancing ideological justifications for mass murder, and in legitimizing a culture of ethnic and racial hatred. Using a variety of primary sources, Wegner provides a vivid account of the development of Nazi education.

Editors Note Schools played a major role in advancing an ideological justification for mass murder and legitimizing a Nazi culture of ethnic and racial hatred. Wegner provides a fascinating look at the anti-Semitic foundations of Nazi curriculum for elementary schools, paying particular attention to the subjects of biology, history and literature. Wegner argues that any study of Nazi society and its values must probe the education provided by the regime in order to understand how the official knowledge of the state was circulated and legitimized. Anti-Semitism and Schooling Under the Third Reich chronicles an extreme case of what happens when schools are put in the service of a political agenda.
