‘Furtwängler used to spend every Christmas with us’main
We’ve been sent the fascinating video memoirs of Professor George L. Mosse (1918-1999), who grew up in a wealthy Jewish household in Berlin and, as a child, got to know many of its cultural lions. Mosse was sent to boarding school in England when Hitler came to power. He made his name in the US as a formidable historian. His best known work is The Crisis of German Ideology: Intellectual Origins of the Third Reich (1965).
