Rationalization and Method: Critique of a New Approach in Understanding the “Final Solution”
Diner criticizes Goetz Aly and Susanne Heim’s thesis that Nazi experts planned the Final Solution as a means of demographic and economic rationalization, arguing that it is a mono-causal explanation, which leaves out of the equation the primacy of racist and political motives as well as the actual happenings. Also, it is asserted that by delineating the continuity of the careers of the experts, and the historical context of their ideas of modernization and population control, they diminish the Holocaust as a unique event.
