HITLERLAND: American Eyewitnesses to the Nazi Rise to Power
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up on the first part of todayâ€™s program weâ€™ll talk with Andrew Nagorski, author of the new book HITLERLAND (Simon and Schuster). Itâ€™s a book about Americans living in or visiting Germany in the 1920â€™s and 30â€™s as Adolph Hitler rose to power. The book includes eyewitness accounts from journalists, diplomats, socialites, intellectuals, labor organizers, artists, performers and athletes. Some were famous at the time- such as aviator Charles Lindbergh and author Sinclair Lewis. Others were soon to be famous- such as broadcasters Howard K. Smith, CBSâ€™s William Shirer and a young Harvard Student named John F. Kennedy.
