Feel Good Fuehrer

I've been frustrated on many occasions discussing the holocaust with various people, because I've found that people generally buy into this whole "how could the holocaust happen without the Germans rising up to stop it?

A new book, Hitlers Volksstaat posits that Hitler was a populist who knew how to buy the goodwill of his citizenry with tax cuts and other benefits (high emplyment, etc.).

A SPIEGEL ONLINE article New Holocaust Book, New Theory: How Germans Fell for the 'Feel-Good' Fuehrer discusses how this threory is beiong received in today's Germany (hint: not well).
