Victor Klemperer (1881-1960) was Professor of French Literature at Dresden
University. As a Jew, he was removed from his university post in 1935, only
surviving thanks to his marriage to an Aryan. From 1933 to 1935 Klemperer
kept detailed diaries, which contain in note form some of the raw material
for the German edition of LTI: Lingua Tertii Imperii.

First published in 1957, The Language of the Third Reich arose from
Klemperer's conviction that the language of the Third Reich helped to
create its culture. As Klemperer writes: 'It isn't only Nazi actions that
have to vanish, but also the Nazi cast of mind, the typical Nazi way of
thinking, and its breeding ground: the language of Nazism.'

This brilliant book is by turns entertaining and profound, saddening and
horrifying. It is deservedly one of the great twentieth-century studies of
language and its engagement with history.

Translated by Dr Martin Brady.
