Summary: "We tend to think of death as a basic and immutable fact of life. Yet death, too, has a history. Death in Berlin is the first study to trace the rituals, practices, perceptions, and sensibilities surrounding death in the context of Berlin's multiple transformations over the decades between Germany's defeat in World War I and the construction of the Berlin Wall. Evocatively illustrated and drawing on a rich collection of sources, Monica Black reveals the centrality of death to the evolving moral and social life of one metropolitan community. In doing so, she connects the intimacies of everyday life and death to events on the grand historical stage that changed the lives of millions - all in a city that stood at the center of some of the twentieth century's most transformative events"--Provided by publisherSummary: "Death in Berlin traces rituals and perceptions surrounding death from the Weimar Republic to the building of the Berlin Wall"--Provided by publisherSummary: Death in Berlin, circa 1930 -- Nazi ways of death -- Death in everyday life -- Death and reckoning -- Death in socialism -- Death and the West
