Hitler's Trains: The German National Railway & the Third Reich
"The largest enterprise in the capitalist world between 1920 and 1945, the Deutsche Reichsbahn (German National Railway), was at the centre of events in a period of great turmoil in Germany. Alfred Mierzejewski reveals the history of the railway's operations throughout Hitler's regime, showing that, despite resisting efforts to politicise its internal functions, it co-operated with the government's anti-Semitic policies. The railway played a crucial role in the Holocaust: not only did it support the construction and operation of the Nazi death camps, but it transported 3 million Jews to them to be destroyed."--Back cover.
