I'm looking for resources on the antisemitic influences upon Hitler and the Nazi effort in relation to the Holocaust. In particular I'm interested in primary sources. Perhaps you can help me?
Hello, I am one of the volunteers who answers questions put forth to the Holocaust -History.org questions list. I would suggest looking for the following books.
The Patriarch of Antisemitism
By Moshe Zimmermann
copyright 1986 by Oxford Press Inc.
The History of the Nazi Party: 1919 - 1933
By Dietrich Orlow
>I am writing a research paper for my European History class at Troy State Univ. on Anti-Semitism in Germany during the Kaiserreich (1871-1918). I am having trouble finding much information on the internet. Can you help? Links to databases, essays, or any other information would be very much appreciated.
I'm afraid that the Internet is not going to provide you with very much information on 19th century anti-Semitism in Germany. I have found a few sites that might be useful to you:
provides abstracts of many excellent publications.
lists anti-Semitic incidents from the beginning of history including the period you are researching.
includes a brief chronology including the period you are researching, listing a number of contemporary publications.
includes Herzl's diaries from 1895 to 1904
lists the articles published in the journal _Jewish Social Studies many of which include the period you are researching.
includes a brief biography (in German) of Wilhelm Marr
In the end you will probably have to visit your university library to find information that will allow you to write a good research paper. Some of the books which I selected from my own library include:
Wilhelm Marr: The Patriarch of Antisemitism
c. 1986, Oxford University Press

I hope that this information will be of some use to you.
