About this item

Drawing on testimonials, prisoner-of-war reports, and primary and secondary sources, the author details the activities of the German Secret Field Police (Geheime Feldpolizei) in Greece during World War II, its actions in the Holocaust, and the occupation, repression, and atrocities committed against the population of Greece, along with comparisons to actions in the Soviet Union and elsewhere in Europe. He examines specific units and members of the police and how and why the police’s actions in Greece contributed to large-scale extermination efforts of the Nazis, destroying Greece’s Jewish population. He describes the connection between the early history of the police in the 19th century and their actions through World War II, and the role of institutionalized extremism; the history of Greece from the establishment of the First Hellenic Republic until the Axis invasion of 1940 and 1941, and problems during that period that left the country susceptible to invasion; Hitler’s war aims from 1940 and 1941 and his involvement in the conquest of Greece and Yugoslavia; how the goals were adjusted to fit the occupation of these countries; the function, organization, and actions of the German Secret Field Police in the occupation of Greece, and its participation in the Holocaust; and the use of the police in Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, and the Soviet Union for comparison.
