This book is not an exhaustive account of the Gestapo but it is exhausting to read There are times the book gets interesting but overall it s no fun to read than a phone book There were interesting points that stuck out but had it been written with of a storytelling approach I might have finished it much sooner than the 2 or so weeks it took But maybe the Gestapo isn t the best subject matter for storytelling

Die Gestapo Herrschaft und Terror im Dritten Reich

Die Gestapo Herrschaft und Terror im Dritten Reich Download ↠ 8 Read Ø eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Í Carsten Dams Sinister epitome of Nazi terror and persecution But how accurate is it to view the Gestapo as an all pervasive all powerful all knowing instrument of terror How much did it depend upon the cooperation and help of ordinary Germans And did its networks extend further into the everyday life of German society than most Germans after 1945 ever wanted to admit Answering these uestions and this book uses t. Today practically every government in the world has both a domestic surveillance department FBI in US MI 5 in UK and an international intelligence agency CIA in US FSB in Russia MI 6 in UK In the Weimer Republic after WW1 each of the constituent governments had their own political police The most powerful was that of Prussia which made up almost half of Germany after the warThere is nothing inherently evil about these agencies it is the way they are used that is usually the problem Keeping an eye on people who want to overthrow the government would seem to be a good thing but when they re used to suash dissent and limit what people can say or think is another matterOriginally what became the GESTAPO was the political section of the police in each German province Even prior to Hitler becoming Chancellor of Germany on January 31 1933 the Nazis had gained control of the police in Prussia under Hermann Goering From this time the GESTAPO became an arm of the Nazi Party whose aim was to crush dissent from anywhere on the political spectrum Under Goering the first concentration camps were set up where political opponents were incarcerated tortured and murdered After 1933 and with the implementation of the Nuremburg Laws all of the political police came under a single jurisdiction that became known as the GESTAPO Himmler was able to take over command after Goering became head of the Four Year Plan to prepare Germany for war From there terror was unlimited The actual GESTAPO was uickly rolled into the RHSA Reich s Central Security Apparatus which was to be then included in the SS SD security detail of the SS Originally it included police from the provincial Political Police and Kripo the Criminal Police but was later mostly populated by Nazi Party members I went on to include the Sondercommandos of the Concentration Camps and the Einsatzgruppen who did most of the killings in Eastern Europe After the war many of its members became part of the East German Stasi and the West Germany intelligence communityAnything and everything well practically that you would want to know about the Gestapo its member its methods etc is included in this well researched bookZeb Kantrowitz

A New Study Of The GestapoPublished in Germany in 2011 The Gestapo Power and Terror in the Third Reich by Carsten Dams and Michael Stolle has been translated into English by Charlotte Ryland and is about to be published by Oxford University Press The authors bring an informed scholarly perspective to the book Dams is Professor of Police Science at the School of Public Management North Rhine Westphalia Stolle Executive Director of the House of Competence Karlsruhe Institute of Technology has written extensively on the Gestapo The book makes use of extensive research on the Gestapo much of which as shown in the extensive bibliography is in German and thus not readily available to non specialist American readersThis book is short but dense and difficult The translation is good on the whole with some stylistic and grammatical eccentricities in English The book is dry and academic The advantage of the book s tone is that it avoids the temptation to sensationalism and stereotyping Most readers likely know of the Gestapo primarily through broader studies of Nazi Germany or through representations in the media This book presents a detailed focused approach The disadvantage of the academic writing on this work is that it may become dull and perhaps overly detached in tone for many readers Thus while the book is valuable it is written for a reader with a serious interest in the subjectThe authors begin with the observation that the Gestapo or the German Secret State Police has become emblematic of the Third Reich for many people It has an almost mythological character as an omnipotent terrorist organization which the leaders of the Gestapo themselves carefully cultivated Dams and Stolle are far from minimizing the evil terror murder and lawlessness that followed in the Gestapo s wake Their goal is to show how the Gestapo changed they unhappily use the term evolved over the life of the Third Reich They also want to show that the Gestapo formed part of a broad range of organizations and people that led to the Holocaust and to other terrors They point to other parts of the German police establishment to the Army to collaborators and informants both within Germany and in places that came under the dominion of the Reich They find a broad guilt in the crimes of the Reich not only in Gestapo leadership but in the Gestapo officers as well who worked with a great deal of discretion and with other components of German and European society They conclude that many Gestapo participants essentially escaped without proper punishment in the years following WW IIDrawing of the work of earlier scholars Dams and Stolle distinguish between a Normative and a Prerogative state both of which existed in the Third Reich The normative state involves the laws and rules that apply to the non persecuted portions of a society The prerogative state is one which takes actions against outsiders those whom the state defines as enemies The Gestapo was empowered to take preemptive action against those defined as enemies and to do so without legal obligation in wholly arbitrary ways and by means of brutal terror The Gestapo was the core institution of the National Socialist Prerogative StateReaders looking for detailed accounts of the innumerable murders tortures and acts of sadism will not find it in this book Dams and Stolle fully acknowledge the scope and enormity of the crimes but their focus lies in trying to identify the institutional structure that allowed the perpetuation of the crimes rather than in their description Thus the early chapters of the book describe the development of the Gestapo from the police forces that existed during the Weimar Republic particularly as these forces combatted communism and the rising NSDAP itself The book describes the recruitment of personnel and discusses the difficulty of attributing any one specific motivation to the many individuals that worked for the Gestapo Many were committed to the NSDAP programme while others were careerists seeking advancement while still others were attracted by the possibilities of sadism and brutality The authors then briefly examine the top leadership of the Gestapo including figures such as Himmler Heydrich Muller and the lawyer Werner Best The book examines the shifting relationships between the Gestapo leadership in Berlin the Gestapa and the field offices elsewhere in Germany and eventually in EuropeThe authors then describe the Gestapo s way of operating in Germany and the manner in which all the police organizations of the state worked together even though they freuently were rivals They discuss political persecutions the persecutions of religious groups foreign nationals and others leading to the beginnings of the implementation of the policy against JewsThen Dams and Stolle discuss the expansion of the Gestapo s reach with the prosecution of the war including the many enormities of the Holocaust The discussions are brief but focused as the book describes the Gestapo s differing role and the different types of collaborations in the many countries which the Third Reich controlled for a timeThe final sections of the book offer an overview of attempts to prosecute members of the Gestapo following WW II These efforts met with mixed success but had overall the effect of increasing knowledge of the Gestapo and the ways in which it operated Finally the authors try briefly to consider what lessons might be drawn from the structure of the Gestapo for contemporary issues The authors are broadly skeptical of the proper scope of preemptive police work aimed at a group or a perceived enemy before a crime has been committed They are reluctant to draw any specific conclusions because the enormities of the Third Reich have no easy analogiesDams and Stolle have written a scholarly and valuable history of the Gestapo and of the ways in which it operated The book will be of interest to serious students of Nazi Germany
