Nazi-Deutsch/Nazi-German: An English Lexicon of the Language of the Third Reich

By Robert Michael; Karin Doerr | Go to book overview

Preface
This lexicon provides an extensive dictionary of the language of the Third Reich seen through the filter of German National Socialism. It is a research tool in the study of Nazi Germany, World War II, and the Holocaust and an aid to English translation and definition of the German language of that period. In one single volume, it gives access to a specialized vocabulary—namely, the terminology of Nazi ideology; propaganda slogans; military terms; ranks and offices in the Nazi Party, the German (Reich) government, and the armed forces (Wehrmacht), along with their numerous abbreviations and acronyms; euphemisms and code names; Germanized words; chauvinistic and antisemitic vocabulary and expressions; military and everyday slang; and racist and sexist slurs. The Appendix contains material we thought too extensive to be placed in the lexicon itself: lists of concentration camps; military, government, and party ranks; the Nazi Party Program; the Hitler oaths; Nazi songs; examples of Nazi material included in children’s school textbooks; and the Germanized calendar of months. Entries have been arranged as follows:
a) the Nazi-German term,
b) its abbreviation if applicable,
c) the literal English translation if necessary,
d) the definition of the term within its Third Reich context in contemporary English,
e) cross-references.
This entry is typical:
a) Reichsverband deutscher Schriftsteller.
b) (RDS)
