Synopsis

Delves into the heart of the Third Reich, evoking daily life as it was lived in Nazi Germany and the countries it conquered.

Seduced by Hitler shows in startling detail how almost every waking hour of Hitler's reign offered insidious choices to the average German in their interactions with each other and the regime, whether at work, at home or at leisure.

Recent scholarship has focused on determinist theories to explain how Germans succumbed to Nazism, such as a predisposition to exterminationist anti-Semitism, or out of terror of a supposedly all-embracing Gestapo. This book goes beyond those accounts and brings to life the steady breakdown of national morality in the Third Reich and the seduction of the German people by Hitler.

Seduced by Hitler reveals little-known information that will illustrate the bleak, macabre and often bizarre reality of the Nazi dictatorship:
--The story of 2,000 homosexuals who opted to be castrated rather than be sent to concentration camps.
--How the Nazis launched a war on cancer, conducting groundbreaking research that was later destroyed.
--How thousands of Germans profited from consumer fascism by buying from the Gestapo--at reduced prices--furs, jewelry and silverware stolen from the victims of the Holocaust.
