Books and other Reading Materials

Unfortunately, there are no English translations for most of the titles referenced on the German version of this website. Please find a full reference list in German here: Literatur

We do however provide an English version of the Volunteer Work Stay Reader:

Initiative for a Memorial at the Former Uckermark Youth Concentration Camp:

"International Antifascist Feminist Working Camp at the Site of the Former Uckermark Youth Concentration Camp 2009" (texts available in English and German)

In 2009, a reader was compiled containing texts that provide an initial overview of the history of the Uckermark Youth Concentration Camp, the volunteer work stays and their political context, as well as other relevant actors.

The reader (in both German and English) can be downloaded as a pdf (980MB)

 

"Clear Wording or 'Historical' Euphemisms? Conceptual Controversies Surrounding the Naming of National Socialist Memorial Sites in Germany"

This text is on National Socialist euphemisms and their continued usage today. One example is the debate around the naming of the Uckermark Youth Concentration Camp. It was originally published in: "Edinburgh German Yearbook 8: New Literary and Linguistic Perspectives on the German Language, National Socialism, and the Shoah". The "German Yearbook" is put out annually by the University of Edinburgh and is mostly geared towards an English-speaking audience that is studying German. Every year the "German Yearbook" handles a different topic, and in 2014 it was "The German Language, National Socialism, and the Shoah".

The publishers have kindly granted us permission to make a slightly modified draft version available here as a pdf file (approx. 20 pages).
