Nuremberg—a city associated with Nazi excesses, party rallies, and the extreme anti-Semitic propaganda published by Hitler ally Julius Streicher—has struggled since the Second World War to come to terms with the material and moral legacies of Nazism. This book explores how the Nuremberg community has confronted the implications of the genocide in which it participated, while also dealing with the appalling suffering of ordinary German citizens during and after the war. Neil Gregor’s compelling account of the painful process of remembering and acknowledging the Holocaust offers new insights into postwar memory in Germany and how it has operated. Gregor takes a novel approach to the theme of memory, commemoration, and remembrance, and he proposes a highly nuanced explanation for the failure of Germans to face up to the Holocaust for years after the war. His book makes a major contribution to the social and cultural history of Germany.

'Running parallel to the conventional history of Liverpool ... there is an unseen seam of supernatural stories that have been largely ignored by the strait-laced historians, ' says Torn Slemen, who is, of course, fascinated by this other history and no subject matter is too strange or too terrifying to merit his scrutiny. While some stories may prove to be nothing more than urban myths, many turn out to be only too spine-chillingly true. Take for example the phantom mare of Dovecot House, which wreaked revenge on Ralph Walsh, the man who had poisoned her... Plus: * The chilling case of the greedy Toxteth man who was willing to sacrifice the soul of a homeless man to obtain the winning Euromillions Lottery numbers from the Devil * The psychopathic doppelganger that attempted to kill its flesh-and-blood counterpart * The "Red Menace" - a ghastly zombie-like being that has stalked Liverpool children for decades * The Phantom Road that appears on the M62 and hypnotically draws motorists to their deaths * The gut-wrenching story of the Wind from Hell - when a raging hurricane uprooted trees and coffins galore in St James's Cemetery - was it a natural occurrence - or the result of a gypsy's curse? This story is not to be read if you have a weak stomach! * The well-documented case of the "Sefton Park Vampires" who terrorised a party of students in the 1960s * The boy who was stalked by a "fetch" - a creepy little wizened figure of an old woman who followed the child home to...well, you'll have to read the book to find out. * The terrifying case of a bizarre, apparently cannibalistic entity known as "Hilty" who had his lair in a derelict house on William Henry Street * The many sightings of John Lennon's ghost at Strawberry Field and other areas of the city * The crossed line that allowed eavesdroppers to hear future events... * The bizarre case of the four suicides committed across Liverpool on the same night that linked up to form a perfect geometric design on a map of the city... Plus many more strange tales from Liverpool's darker side... If you are prepared to join with Tom in confronting those mysteries that lie just beneath the surface of Liverpool and dare to delve into that world of the supernatural that touches us all, read "The Haunted City" by Liverpool's most well-known and most successful local writer - Tom Slemen, author of the ultra-popular Haunted Liverpool series of books.
