Summary

Lower provides the most complete assessment available of German colonization and the Holocaust in Ukraine, the "jewel" of the Nazi empire. In this unprecedented attempt at Nazi empire building, violence, racism, antisemitism, and militarism pervaded all aspects of everyday life. Lower argues that it was in the eastern outposts of the Reich, such as Ukraine, that the regime's core beliefs, aims, and practices were revealed.

"[A] fastidiously researched, thorough, insightful, and flowingly readable examination of the Nazi racial vision as implemented in... the occupied East." (Central European History Review)
"First-rate." (Journal of Modern History)
