Book question: Ernst Klee “Personenlexikon”

Post by J. Duncan » 17 Apr 2019 13:46

Hello all,
I wanted to know if this book is a good reference source or if anyone values this book as a reference? It appears to be although it is a German book. I’m thinking it’s a more thorough “who was who” kind of book, better than ones in English (Snyder, zentner, wistrich) but I could be wrong. It’s not very expensive so I’m thinking about getting a copy from Germany. Thanks in advance to those who respond.

Ernst Klee “Das Personenlexikon zum Dritten
Reiches por und nach 1945”

interesting with short bios (with some mistakes) Klee +++ much better than Stockhorst ++ Wistrich +

I recommand these 3 one : The nazi Elite Smelser/Zitelmann (23 bios), Die braune Elite II Smelser/Zitelmann, Syring (21 bios) and Die SS Elite unter dem Totenkopf Smelser/Syring (30 lebensläufe)
Best regards

Georges
