Occupation in the East Summary

Occupation in the East: The Daily Lives of German Occupiers in Warsaw and Minsk, 1939-1944 by Stephan Lehnstaedt

Following their occupation by the Third Reich, Warsaw and Minsk became home to tens of thousands of Germans. In this exhaustive study, Stephan Lehnstaedt provides a nuanced, eye-opening portrait of the lives of these men and women, who constituted a surprisingly diverse population-including everyone from SS officers to civil servants, as well as ethnically German city residents-united in its self-conception as a "master race." Even as they acclimated to the daily routines and tedium of life in the East, many Germans engaged in acts of shocking brutality against Poles, Belarusians, and Jews, while social conditions became increasingly conducive to systematic mass murder.

Occupation in the East Reviews

"Lehnstaedt's powerful work should inspire additional research... Highly Recommended." - Choice "Beyond the deft use of social history and original perspective, Lehnstaedt's contribution is a model of scholarly erudition. It is scrupulous with the use of evidence and painstaking in the presentation of claims. Martin Dean's English translation is not only free of error, but smooth and concise." - H-Net
