The End by Ian Kershaw - Germany 1944-45

Explaining History

By 1944 it was clear that there was no future for the Third Reich, but unlike other regimes that have faced overwhelming odds, Germany fought on to the end. Historian Ian Kershaw wrote a groundbreaking book in 2011, The End, which explained why the Third Reich chose the path of Gotterdammerung (downfall). This is the first of several podcasts where we explore Kershaw's thesis. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information. Become a member at https://plus.acast.com/s/explaininghistory.

#22 - Hitler e a "Solução Final": conceitos da obra de Ian Kershaw

Desnazificando

🎙 A seus postos Aliança Rebelde! Está começando mais um Desnazificando, e no episódio de hoje nós vamos falar sobre alguns conceitos da obra do historiador Ian Kershaw. Vamos falar aqui hoje da ideia de "trabalho em direção ao Führer", "autoridade carismática", opiniões da população alemã durante o Terceiro Reich, enfim, uma miscelânea de um monte de coisa que o Kershaw falou ao longo da vida. Como vocês sabem, estamos fazendo aqui no nosso instagram a Semana Ian Kershaw em homenagem ao aniversário desse historiador que nós amamos tanto e que é uma referência enorme para qualquer pessoa que queira se aventurar a estudar nazismo. Infelizmente a maioria das obras do Kershaw ainda não foram traduzidas para o português, então esperamos que esse conteúdo possa auxiliar a divulgar mais esses conceitos tão importantes para a compreensão do Terceiro Reich. Então esperamos que vocês gostem de mais esse conteúdo da Semana Kershaw! Kershaw faz parte da linha de historiadores que tenta compreender a (des)organização do regime nazista em conjunto com a construção da imagem de Hitler. Ele é uma das maiores e mais reconhecidas referências sobre Terceiro Reich. Em português, temos acesso, infelizmente, apenas à monumental biografia de Hitler (2008), "O fim do Terceiro Reich: a destruição da Europa de Hitler" (2015) e “De volta ao Inferno: Europa, 1914-1949” (2016), "Dez decisões que mudaram o mundo" (2008), todos lançados pela Companhia das Letras. Kershaw também é conhecido por ser conselheiro histórico nas séries da BBC “The Nazis: a warning from history” (1997) e “War of the century” (1999). Hoje nós vamos falar um pouquinho sobre alguns conceitos da obra do historiador e pode ter certeza que vem muita fritação por aí. Vem com a gente!

Ian Kershaw: Rollercoaster: Europe 1950-2017

The Book Club

In this week’s books podcast, Sam Leith talks to Sir Ian Kershaw about his new book Rollercoaster: Europe 1950-2017. Here from one of our most distinguished historians, is a history of Europe that goes from the postwar period right up to the present. Is he aiming at a moving target? How can you meaningfully speak about “Europe” as one thing when for much of the period under discussion half of it was behind the iron curtain? Were the machinations of powerful individuals, or sheer chance, the great drivers of our history? And how was the raising of the Berlin Wall — from some perspectives — a good thing?
