The Holocaust in Frankfurt am Main

Frankfurt am Main The City and the Holocaust     Copperplate engraving depicting a Jewish man & woman circa 1703 Founded in Charlemagne’s time, Frankfurt was for many years the site of the election and coronation of the German emperors, and in the fourteenth century it became an imperial free city, a status it retained until its annexation by Prussia in 1866.   Jews first settled in Frankfurt in 1074 and over the course of time its Jewish community became one of the most important in Europe. In the nineteenth century Frankfurt was a cultural centre of the Jewish Enlightenment (Haskalah), as well as of Neo- Orthodoxy.   It also played an important role in commerce, industry and banking – the Rothschild Bank had its centre in Frankfurt until the early twentieth Century. Two of the outstanding personalities based in Frankfurt in the twentieth Century were the ph... (more)

Fear of the Dark

As I'm pathologically fond of pointing out - I'm a child of a bygone era. Oh, I'm not old enough to remember the time before Sputnik, light bulbs, or the coagulation of the planets from protostellar dust clouds, but I surely do remember GI Joe at 45 caliber, Ray Stevens at 45 RPM, and factory-rolled cigarettes at 45¢ a pack sold to anxious minors desperate to rebel (just like everyone else). It seems ironic to me that this column - gilding the edge of JDJ's ultramodern fabric - deals mostly with dusty memories of my vanished youth. On the other hand, I've heard that I should "write about what I know," so my options are extremely limited. Extremely. I mean, how many cab-driving stories can a person take? (Many would say that one is already too many.) I suppose I could repeatedly spew the first 50 digits of pi - which I happened to memorize as a teenaged proto-geek - ... (more)

Our New World

Our world has been changed. We have been changed. Emblazoned in our collective consciousness are indelible, fresh images of unspeakable carnage. We will carry these images with us - shaped in psychic scar tissue - for the rest of our lives. For some of us, September 11 will mark the date we lost an acquaintance, a colleague, or a loved one. For many of us, especially our children, it will mark the date we lost a certain degree of innocence. For all of us, it will mark a dark milestone on the landscape of our memories. My 11-year-old son came home from school that Tuesday with an unsettling bloodlust in his eyes. He had seen the events unfold and was having a purely visceral reaction. Decorum prevents me from recounting all his suggestions for acts of retaliation, but suffice it to say that the U.S. position as a nuclear superpower figured prominently among them. I ... (more)

IBM Ordered Tried for Nazi Complicity

It's almost 60 years since the end of World War II and half the people now alive are only dimly aware that it was even fought, let alone who won, but IBM may finally have to answer for its actions under the Nazis in court. It has been alleged since 2001 on the strength of a book called IBM and the Holocaust that IBM's punch card machines were instrumental in helping the Nazi death squads process their victims and send them to the concentration camps more efficiently. In response, IBM has claimed that its European operations were confiscated by the Nazis and out of its control. Historians, however, have dredged up documents suggesting the company was actively complicit with the SS. Now a Geneva appeals court has cleared the way for representatives of the Gypsies, who the Nazis decimated in the camps, to sue IBM for "moral reparations." Geneva is allegedly where IBM ... (more)

The Assassination of Reinhard Heydrich

Holocaust Research Project on Ulitzer Reinhard Heydrich Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia On the twenty-ninth of May, 1942, Radio Prague announced that Reinhard Heydrich, Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia, lay dying at the Bulovka hospital in Prague from wounds sustained in a daring ambush by Czech partisans as his car passed through the city outskirts at Holesovice, on the Rude Armady VII Kobylisky not far from the Vltava river. The assassins attempted to kill Heydrich with automatic weapons but experienced a malfunction so a grenade was then tossed at the car by one of the Czechs. The resulting explosion caused sever damage to the right rear wing of the Mercedes, puncturing the tire and blowing a large hole in the bodywork. The attackers then fled and, Heydrich attempted to shoot at the escaping assassins but his weapon also misfired. He then staggered ... (more)
