According to the blurb for Thomas Kühne’s new book Belonging and Genocide. Hitler’s Community, 1918-1945, ‘no one has ever posed a satisfactory explanation for the extreme inhumanity of the Holocaust.’ Künhe’s study is not giving one, either, but it offers a provocative and thought-provoking argument, putting the ‘Volksgemeinschaft’ and the German people’s yearning for it at the centre of the antisemitic dynamic that started in the Weimar Republic and ended in the Holocaust.
