Please respond to the following
question in large paragraphs. Please do not use outside sources. Please
only use the book: Wages of Destruction (chap 16) and Only the Dead
(chap 7) by (Braumoeller, Bear F) .
1. Who was Fritz Sauckel? How
did his duties in the National Socialist economy overlap between what we
might consider the “normal” and the “despotic”? How does Tooze think
Sauckel’s negotiations with the SS helped produce the Endlösung?
What was the Hungerplan? How did it emerge out of practical (albeit
genocidal) German economic and geopolitical goals, yet (in Tooze’s
telling) come to create the ideal conditions for the purely ideological
goals of the SS elite to metastasize?
3. Can you think
of a motivating force for the Endlösung other than the “purely
ideological” or the economic one that Tooze suggests interacted with the
ideological goals of the NSDAP and SS elites? What might a sociological
argument for the motivating force of that genocide that examines the
careers of elite SS officers look like? What about one that looks at the
actions and motivations of non-German proxy forces for the Third Reich?
each question should be answered in a 260 words paragraph (about 800 words total)
