In Harmful and Undesirable, Guenter Lewy analyzes a number of the techniques that the Nazis hired to enact censorship and the govt officers who led the assault on a loose highbrow existence, together with Martin Bormann, Philipp Bouhler, Joseph Goebbels, and Alfred Rosenberg. The Propaganda Ministry performed a number one position within the censorship crusade, supported by way of an array of enterprises at either the nation and native degrees. a result of many overlapping jurisdictions and enterprises, censorship used to be disorderly and erratic.
Beyond the implementation of censorship, Lewy describes the plight of authors, publishers, and bookstores who clashed with the Nazi regime. a few authors have been imprisoned. Others, reminiscent of Gottfried Benn, Werner Bergengruen, Gerhart Hauptmann, Ernst Jünger, Jochen Klepper, and Ernst Wiechert, grew to become debatable "inner emigrants" who selected to stay in Germany. a few of them criticized the Nazi regime via allegories and parables. eventually, Lewy paints a desirable portrait of highbrow existence lower than the Nazi dictatorship, detailing the dismal destiny of these who have been stuck within the wheels of censorship.
