Description

Drawing on interviews with the black survivors of Nazi concentration camps and archival research in North America, Europe, and Africa, this book documents and analyzes the meaning of Nazism's racial policies towards people of African descent, specifically those born in Germany, England, France, the United States, and Africa, and the impact of that legacy on contemporary race relations in Germany, and more generally, in Europe. The book also specifically addresses the concerns of those surviving Afro-Germans who were victims of Nazism, but have not generally been included in or benefited from the compensation agreements that have been developed in recent years.

Reviews

"Lusane's book…set the record straight by writing black back into history of the Holocaust from which they…have been excluded in the past." -- Matthias Reiss, GHIL

"In its attention to almost the full span of the black history in Germany [Lusane's] book comprises the most inclusive study of the black experience to date, bringing together materials hitherto only available in far less accessible." -- Humanities and Social Sciences Online
