Murder Without Hatred: Estonians and the Holocaust (Religion, Theology and the Holocaust)

In this detailed study of Estonians' role in the Holocaust, Anton
Weiss-Wendt casts light on a largely unexplored subject. A country
known for its benevolent treatment of ethnic minorities, Estonia
had a small number of indigenous Jews, and anti-Semitism existed
on a relatively limited scale. However, many ethnic Estonians, acting
as auxiliary security forces under the guidance of the German
security police, participated in the murder of thousands of
Estonian, Czech, and German Jews. Weiss-Wendt investigates
these acts of genocide by posing the simple question: What
prompted the Estonians to cooperate with the Nazis? He argues
that the actions were voluntary but that the reasons varied.
Narrating the history of Estonia's involvement, Weiss-Wendt presents
lucid explanations regarding the relationships between nationbuilding,
mass violence, and the brutal effects of authoritarian
oppression on occupied states.
The first book-length exploration of this aspect of the Holocaust,
Murder Without Hatred: Estonians and the Holocaust enriches our
knowledge of ethnic violence and reinvigorates the current debates
over the roots and operation of the Holocaust.
