But while Zionists understood Nazism as a traumatic prelude to eventual Jewish renewal in Palestine, Nazi officials grotesquely used Zionism toward their goal of Jewish ruination.

This is a study of the ideological and political relationship between Zionism and anti-Semitism in modern Germany, from the nineteenth century through the Third Reich, focusing on the years between 1933 and 1942. It considers three contentious issues in post-Holocaust historiography and debate: the nature of modern German anti-Semitism; the decision-making process leading to the Nazi mass murder of the Jews of Europe; and the nature and role of German Zionism in German-Jewish history before the Holocaust. This study sheds more light on both the ideological and practical assault of German anti-Semitism and Nazi Jewish policy on the Jews of Central Europe, as well as the ideological and political response of some German Jews, the Zionists, to that assault. It concludes that the attitudes and policies of German anti-Semitism and National Socialism toward Zionism reflect a relatively consistent ideology that was applied in an inconsistent and contradictory manner.

Mr. FR Nicosia is a true historian.

1) Francis Nicosia accomplishs something which few historians achieve: He introduces major new facts about historic events and provides one with a totally new view of a historical period.

2) One major puzzle re the rise of the Nazis was how they managed to turn the German people against German Jews -- in a country which had provided Eastern European Jews refuge from Russian pogroms and where intermarriages between German Jews and non-Jews were frequent prior to WWI.

For example, historian Richard Evans received a Royal appointment to the Regnus Professorship at Cambridge and yet his account of how German anti-semitism went from being a minor fringe element to offical government policy was highly unconvincing. (Ref: "The Coming of the Third Reich").

3) Francis Nicosia provides a far better explanation -- by noting on p.66-67 how major Nazi leader Albert Rosenberg exploited the Zionist movement's support for David Lloyd George's Balfour Declaration (creating Israel) to (falsely) tar German Jews with the claim of disloyalty.

Richard Evans never even addressed the major importance of British WWI propaganda and the Balfour Declaration in turbocharging German anti-semitism. Just as he never discussed how the British Blockade -- and US/UK Zionists' appeals to Russian Jews to halt food exports from the Ukraine to Germany-- resulted in the starvation of over 1 million Germans in the 1917-1919 period.

4) Another major surprise in Mr Nicosia's book is his documentation of how the minority Zionist movement in Germany undermined the efforts of the far more numerous assimilated German Jews to fight for their civil rights as Germans -- and of how the Zionists collaborated with the Nazis in exchange for Nazi support of Jewish emigration from Germany to Palestine.

5) If humanity is to avoid horrors like the Holocaust , it is important that we understand the details of how someone like Hitler can gain power by such tactics as "divide and conquer". Mr Nicosia has contributed significantly to that understanding.
