Nyolc májusi nap


Kezdetét vette a Harmadik Birodalom utolsó hete. Hitler halott, de a háborúnak még nincs vége. Mintha megállt volna az idő, mégis minden szakadatlan mozgásban van. Volker Ullrich napról napra leírja ezt az "időtlen időt", és feltárja olvasói előtt a drámaisággal és reménnyel, erőszakkal és félelemmel teli világot. Könyve időutazás az összeomlásba. Miközben a Dönitz-kormány Flensburgba menekül, a szövetséges haderők feltartóztathatatlanul törnek előre. Berlin kapitulál, Olaszországban a C. hadseregcsoport leteszi a fegyvert. Wernher von Braun rakétakutatót letartóztatják. Járványos méretűvé válik az öngyilkosság, tömegessé a nők elleni erőszak. Utolsó halálmenetek, erőszakos kitelepítések, náci fejesek szökése, koncentrációs táborok felszabadítása - mindez beletartozik abba, amit Erich Kästner 1945. május 7-én írt naplóbejegyzésében így fogalmazott meg: "a már nem és a még nem közötti hézag". Volker Ullrich (1943) történész és publicista. 1990-től 2009-ig a Die Zeit című tekintélyes német hetilap munkatársaként a "Politikus könyv" rovatot vezette. A közelmúltban megjelent kétkötetes Hitler-életrajza a nemzetközi piacon is nagy sikert aratott.

Osm květnových dnů


Začíná poslední týden třetí říše. Hitler je po smrti, ale válka ještě neskončila. Všechno jako by se zastavilo, a přece je všechno v překotném pohybu. Volker Ullrich líčí tento „čas bezčasí“ den po dni a zavádí čtenáře do hroutícího se světa plného dramat a naděje, násilí a strachu. Poslední pochody smrti, divoké odsuny, hroutící se moc nacistických pohlavárů, osvobozené koncentrační tábory – to vše patří k oné mezeře mezi minulostí a budoucností.

Hitler - Volume I: Ascent 1889-1939


Despite his status as the most despised political figure in history, there have only been four serious biographies of Hitler since the 1930s. Even more surprisingly, his biographers have been more interested in his rise to power and his methods of leadership than in Hitler the person: some have even declared that the Fuhrer had no private life. Yet to render Hitler as a political animal with no personality to speak of, as a man of limited intelligence and poor social skills, fails to explain the spell that he cast not only on those close to him but on the German people as a whole. In the first volume of this monumental biography, Volker Ullrich sets out to correct our perception of the Fuhrer. While charting in detail Hitler's life from his childhood to the eve of the Second World War against the politics of the times, Ullrich unveils the man behind the public persona: his charming and repulsive traits, his talents and weaknesses, his deep-seated insecurities and murderous passions. Drawing on a wealth of previously neglected or unavailable sources, this magisterial study provides the most rounded portrait of Hitler to date. Ullrich renders the Fuhrer not as a psychopath but as a master of seduction and guile - and it is perhaps the complexity of his character that explains his enigmatic grip on the German people more convincingly than the cliched image of the monster. This definitive biography will forever change the way we look at the man who took the world into the abyss.

Eight Days in May


'The last days of the Third Reich have often been told, but seldom with the verve, perception and elegance of Volker Ullrich's rich narrative' Richard Overy, author of The Bombing War 1 May 1945. The world did not know it yet, but the final week of the Third Reich's existence had begun. Hitler was dead, but the war had still not ended. Everything had both ground to a halt and yet remained agonizingly uncertain. Volker Ullrich's remarkable book takes the reader into a world torn between hope and terror, violence and peace. Ullrich describes how each day unfolds, with Germany now under a new Fuhrer, Admiral Doenitz, based improbably in the small Baltic town of Flensburg. With Hitler dead, Berlin in ruins and the war undoubtedly lost, the process by which the fighting would end remained horrifyingly unclear. Many major Nazis were still on the loose, wild rumours continued to circulate about a last stand in the Alps and the Western allies falling out with the Soviet Union. All over Europe, millions of soldiers, prisoners, slave labourers and countless exhausted, grief-stricken and often homeless families watched and waited for the war's end. Eight Days in May is the story of people, in Erich Kastner's striking phrase, stuck in 'the gap between no longer and not yet'. 'A fast-paced, brilliant recounting of the turbulent last days of the Third Reich, with all the energy and chaos of a Jackson Pollock canvas' Helmut Walser Smith, author of Germany: A Nation in its Time
