The Moral Conquest of Germany

Excerpt from The Moral Conquest of Germany Knowledge of the German character might have prevented World War II. This is why in this moment of decision of world importance I once more try to delineate the German national - character as a warning not to try "democracy" in Germany before a period of education. It is both wrong and dangerous to accept a political distinction between Nazis and Germans, as German propaganda would have it. This book offers a case for the guilt of the German nation. I have attempted before to present the two sides of the German character: in three studies on Bismarck, the Kaiser, and Hindenburg, and in my biographies of Goethe and Beethoven. These two sides I combined in my book The Germans: Double History of a Nation. Its publication was three years ahead of public opinion in this country; in 1941 the German problem was hardly recognized as such. In England, where the upper classes had come to know the Germans well by the bombs from above and by Lord Vansittart's excellent writings from within - the book became much more popular. A bit of the material in that book has meanwhile found its way into writings of other authors, such as Creel, Nizer, Schwarzschild from whom I am now borrowing some details. I have come forward with practical suggestions on the postwar treatment of Germany in lectures and broadcasts, in articles and pamphlets, before the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives, and before the Amg at Charlottesville. Many of these ideas were widely contested at the time of their appearance, but today most of them have been accepted.
