Goebbels by Peter Longerich

Goebbels: A BiographyGoebbels: A Biography by Peter Longerich
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group for the ARC, Goebbels by Peter Longerich. This book is a must for Holocaust libraries, academic, public and high school libraries. The research on Goebbels, Hitler, and their campaign against the Jews is extensive and exhaustive. Thanks to his journals, the reader learns what an insecure self-serving man Joseph Goebbels was and how this helped to catapult him to become the Minister of Propaganda in Hitler’s inner circle. His hatred of Jews was as virulent as Hitler’s and together they created the National Socialist Movement in Germany and dreamed of destroying all Jews in Germany and throughout the world. Riveting and revolting.
