Lombroso here summarizes his views on the relationship between physical stature and criminal behavior. Special attention is given to the brain and to the shape of the cranium. Cesare Lombroso , the Italian criminologist, was born of a Jewish family in Verona, and became professor of forensic medicine and of psychiatry at Turin, where he later filled the chair of criminal anthropology.
Strongly influenced by Auguste Comte, from whom he adopted a perhaps exaggerated tendency to assign all mental facts to biogical attributes, he was the greatest of a long line of Italian criminologists, which included Bovio, Ferri, and Colajanni. His far reaching studies showed, in sum, that the criminal population is characterized by a higher percentage of nervous, mental, and especially physical anomalies than non-criminals, and that degeneration and atavism are the causes of these anomolies.
In the present volume, Lombroso proposes a classification of criminals, such that those born "criminal types" may receive a different kind of punishment from those whom circumstance tempts into crime.

DSB XI, p. In the late s, the Federal Republic of Germany West Germany faced a crucial moment in the worst period of domestic terrorism the country had experienced since its founding. As had occurred with the Schleyer kidnapping, several persons were killed in the assault, and Moro was taken as a hostage. The Red Brigade demanded the release of several prisoners, and when the demands were not met, assassinated Moro, who was found dead in the trunk of a car. For some, it illustrated the German state in crisis: battered down and seemingly helpless in the face of a handful of terrorists. For others, it revealed what they suspected had been there all along: the face of authoritarian or fascist power.
Always differentiate the two Germanys. Germany was artificially divided at Yalta by U. Jim Jones, . Meeting at the Yalta Conference in February , U. President Franklin D. Stalin insisted upon a Soviet sphere of influence in the Eastern European region, Churchill pressed for free elections and democracy in all countries including those of Eastern Europe , and Roosevelt, in order to set the basis for lasting peace, found it paramount that the Soviet Union join the United Nations.
Agreement was reached on most points; Roosevelt — who would not live to see the consequences — considered the conference to be a success. At the time, though, the common goal of the war allies regarding Nazi Germany was clear: Never again would this country — whose murderous racial ideology and violent expansion policies had caused the deaths of so many millions and plunged the world into unprecedented disaster — ever become strong enough for similar aggressive actions.
In the exercise of such authority they will take such steps, including the complete dismemberment of Germany, as they deem requisite for future peace and security. As a first step, Germany was divided into four zones of occupation — French, British, American, and Soviet — with respective zone sectors in Berlin, and an Allied Control Council to decide on questions regarding the whole region including the formerly-occupied countries. In the Potsdam Agreement of July , and as an obvious first step, they agreed on the dissolution of the Nazi party — known as the NSDAP  — and other Nazi organizations, on the demilitarization of former Wehrmacht forces, and on the political decentralization of the country.
The means by which this goal was to be reached differed, depending on the political interests of the occupational forces. Except in the Soviet zone, a sense of collective responsibility for the atrocities of the Nazi regime in German people was considered essential. You are guilty! It was an ambitious project, started with enormous zeal. Until , about four million denazification proceedings were carried out in the Western sectors alone, with individuals being classified as major offenders, offenders, lesser offenders, followers, and persons exonerated. Consequences ranged from death sentences to restrictions in professional life and civil rights.
By , about Nazi criminals had been executed in West Germany, sometimes against the protests of the population. In the end, these executions, probably more than anything else, made it clear to Germans that a Fourth Reich would not be tolerated. This led to the postwar realization that the country could not be run without them. In addition, as the Cold War began and new enemies appeared, interest in denazification decreased considerably among Western forces. This was especially true for the U. The official end of denazification procedures was fixed in an agreement, and subsequent German law in But the most thorough denazification had taken place in the Soviet zone, with its very different political goal.
The Jonestown utopia … became a new center, an axis mundi, in the geographical imagination of the Peoples Temple. To many — among them a number of American leftists and Jewish refugees, disillusioned by racism and segregation in American postwar society — the newly-founded East German state became an equally attractive center: a promised land where the utopia of a socialist society, based on equality, would finally become real.
Individuals who shared that dream came from all sides: The Harvard-educated American communist Stephen Wechsler, who served in the U. Salomea Genin  was one of those who returned: born in Berlin to Jewish parents, she had to flee Nazi Germany as a seven-year-old. The family went to Australia, where the girl grew up to become a dedicated communist. The vision of her native Germany, transformed into an antifascist utopia, free of antisemitism, could not but attract her. Ideology would solve the dilemma. In the East German i. A small group of monopoly capitalists, so the tale went, had helped Hitler to come into power.
The real victims of the Nazi regime were thus their traditional antagonists, that is, the working class. This version not only disregards the role Western forces had played in the defeat of Nazi Germany, but it shapes the image of the new enemy countries in the nascent Cold War. Wartime events received a new interpretation: e. This interpretation offered East Germans the possibility of feeling as victims of capitalism, instead of perpetrators in the criminal regime whose violent expansion policies triggered World War II.
The coming to terms with that past — as it had to take place somewhere — was externalized,  and that externalization was to the West. There were excellent books and excellent films. However, the daily reality of life in a Soviet-dominated, economically-lagging country had shattered the hopes of many, and the numbers of those seeking emigration to Western Europe increased to the dimension of a mass exodus. In the Western part of the world, it came to be better known as the Berlin Wall. Unlike in West Germany, no foreign support had been granted to help build up the country; quite the contrary, postwar payments of reparation to the Soviet Union, totaling times per person higher in reparation payments than in West Germany, had almost starved the country.
Their anger and frustration had been such that not even Soviet tanks and troops could bring the protests under control. As a consequence, the new Soviet leadership decided to loosen some of the policies Stalin had established with East Germany. Substantial recovery, however, was never reached. The eventual reunification of the two Germanys after the fall of the Berlin Wall in November was met with enormous enthusiasm on both sides.
Since it was not a unification on equal parts, but rather an inclusion of the GDR into West German structures, many Eastern citizens found it hard to adapt to the new conditions and felt their own experiences to be disvalued. A few, like Grossmann, see the breakdown of the GDR and the subsequent reunification as another challenge to build a progressive and better society. According to Jones, the U. The existence of concentration camps in the S. Pictures of U.
Full employment was reached, and a consumerist lifestyle dominated everyday life. Only ten to fifteen years after the Nuremberg trials, West Germany was a conservative democracy following in many regards the U. It had become a trusted partner again and enjoyed a renewed approval on an international scale. However, that would change when the next generation inside and outside the lecture halls of German universities began to talk politics … and to ask questions. Due to a massive overreaction of the police and the denunciation of the students by the influential rightwing Springer press which owned the most widely-read newspapers and magazines in West Germany , the movement soon swept the whole country.
As to NS beliefs, prejudices, or views, there was no real need for young West Germans to rely on history books alone. Such views were frequently uttered, and loudly enough. It was at least in part ordered and executed by former SS members. Moreover, while the FRG was a democracy, it was young, and its bureaucracy still had authoritarian aspects, so could it be a democracy one could rely on?
A majority of its citizens had not been socialized to appreciate the democratic values of criticism or freedom of opinion that the young generation desperately tried to impose. Many of those in leading positions found these values even wrong. West German students of the s had witnessed cases of severe censorship of the press e. Many of them feared that fascism might rise again.
In their protests, they were often decried, sometimes criminalized, and mostly not heard. The feeling of frustration and powerlessness gave some of them the idea that demonstrating in the streets might not be enough. These fears, however, were the fears of the s. Prior to , nonviolence had been a principle of most West German student organizations; the rare exceptions were instances of violence against objects.
In the midst of police beating up demonstrators, a student named Benno Ohnesorg was shot in the head and died on the way to the hospital. It is a terrible thing to kill. But not only others would we kill, But ourselves too if need be. Since only force can alter this Murderous world, as Every living creature knows. A series of books, films, and documentaries have traced the biographies of Gudrun Ensslin, Ulrike Meinhof, and Andreas Baader, the founding and leading figures of the RAF. As to the personal reasons for the RAF leaders to cross the line from political activism to armed struggle, however, no conclusive answer has so far been found.
Gudrun Ensslin, born in to a family with a Protestant background — her father was a pastor — was, by all accounts, a brilliant student, an open-minded young woman, and a passionate reader. At university, she chose literary studies with the intention to become a teacher. In the electoral campaign of , she became an activist for the Social Democrats. With this coalition, in the view of Ensslin and many like her, the possibility of political opposition within Parliament had been shattered.
They worked on German translations of relevant texts, and engaged in the desertion campaigns for black GIs. He had a history of carjacking and posed as an occasional model for gay magazines. He was said to be charming, very charismatic, and often frightening. However, it was said that there was a kind of genuine freedom in his behavior that attracted her in more than just a personal way.
Ensslin was shaken by the murder of Ohnesorg; the powerlessness and frustration of her efforts to make a political change by discussion, writing, and demonstrating had triggered her desire to transition from theory to action. In the words of Karin Bauer:.
