In der Studie werden die Fragen nach dem historischen Ort der deutsch-japanischen Kulturbegegnung 1933-1945 gestellt und Traditionen, Bruche und Kontinuitaten der deutschen Japan-Wahrnehmung beleuchtet, die bis in die heutige Zeit fortwirken. Zwischen 1933 und 1945 intensivierte das Deutsche Reich neben den politisch-militarischen Beziehungen insbesondere den Kulturaustausch mit Japan. Dieser bislang vernachlassigten Kulturbegegnung, die auf eine ausgepragte deutsche Affinitat fur Asiens Geisteskulturen und das wachsende Interesse fur japanische Spiritualitat (Shinto, Zen-Buddhismus, Bushido) zuruckgreifen konnte, gilt das Augenmerk der Arbeit, die sich auf zahlreiche unbekannte und unzureichend ausgewertete Quellen stutzen kann. Anhand von Meinungsausserungen und Massnahmen Hitlers, Berichten des Sicherheitsdienstes der SS, Tagebuchaufzeichnungen Goebbels' und Berichten in der NS-Presse werden die Haltung von Fuhrung und Bevolkerung des Dritten Reiches zu seinem fernostlichen Verbundeten und insbesondere Hitlers Japanbild, von den Anfangen seines politischen Aufstiegs bis zur Zeit des Kriegsbundnisses und seinem Selbstmord 1945, untersucht. Diesem deutschen "Verstandnis" Japans wird die selbstbewusste und oft kritische japanische Sichtweise auf das Dritte Reich gegenubergestellt. Reprasentative erstmals ubersetzte Nachrufe auf Hitlers Tod und Kommentare zur deutschen Kapitulation 1945 spiegeln die japanische Perspektive auf den Untergang des Dritten Reiches wider und tragen dazu bei, eine Gesamtbilanz der deutsch-japanischen Kulturbegegnung 1933-1945 zu ziehen.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Orientalistik / Sinologie - Japanologie, Note: 1,0, Ruhr-Universitat Bochum (Fakultat fur Ostasienwissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Die japanische Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Jahr 2011 steht in Japan, sowie in Deutschland fur die mittlerweile 150 Jahre alten deutsch-japanischen Beziehungen. Am 24.1.1861 begann die geschichtstrachtig Beziehung mit dem Freundschafts-, Handels- und Schifffahrtsvertrag, der zwischen dem Konigreich Preussen und dem Tokugawa Sh gunat geschlossen wurde. Grossereignisse, wie der Erste Weltkrieg und die darauf folgende politisch instabile Phase der Zwischenkriegszeit, der Zweite Weltkrieg und die damit verbundene Niederlage der beiden Bundnispartner im Jahr 1945, sowie der Wirtschaftsboom der Nachkriegsjahre, umfassen 150 Jahre deutschjapanische Beziehungen. In dieser historischen Untersuchung liegt der Fokus auf der deutsch-japanischen Kulturbegegnung der Jahre 1933 bis 1945. Der kulturelle Austausch und dessen Verwendung fur die Propaganda des dritten Reichs steht hier im Vordergrund und soll naher erlautert werden. Innerhalb der Arbeit soll auf das bewusst glorifizierte Japanbild der Nationalsozialisten erklarend eingegangen werden. Durch Hinzuziehen von deutschen und japanischen Quellen und Publikationen der Zeitspanne von 1933 bis 1945 soll dieses NS-Bild Japans kritisch erforscht und hinterfragt werden. Hitlers Mein Kampf, sowie weitere Primarliteratur aus der NS-Zeit werden verwendet, da mit Hilfe dieser Publikationen das politische und propagandistische Japanbild der NSDAP skizziert werden kann. Durch Einbezug von Quellen und Veroffentlichungen aus der damaligen Japanforschung und dem daraus folgenden Kulturaustausch soll die zeitgenossische Kritik an dem oben beschriebenen Japanbild NS-Deutschlands in diese Arbeit einfliessen. Es wird Forschungsliteratur hinzugezogen, welche den aktuellen Forschungsstand der allgemeinen Geschichtsforschung, sowie der Jap"

April 30, 1945, marked an end of sorts in the Third Reich. The last business day before a national holiday and then a series of transfers of power, April 30 was a day filled with contradictions and bewildering events that would forever define global history. It was on this day that while the Red Army occupied Berlin, Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker, and, in San Francisco, the United Nations was being founded. Alexander Kluge's latest book, The 30th of April 1945, covers this single historic day and unravels its passing hours across the different theaters of the Second World War. Translated by Wieland Hoban, the book delves into the events happening around the world on one fateful day, including the life of a small German town occupied by American forces and the story of two SS officers stranded on the forsaken Kerguelen Islands in the South Indian Sea. Kluge is a master storyteller, and as he unfolds these disparate tales, one unavoidable question surfaces: What is the appropriate reaction to the total upheaval of the status quo? Enriched by an afterword by Reinhard Jirgl, translated by Iain Galbraith, The 30th of April 1945 is a riveting collection of lives turned upside down by the deadliest war in history. The collective experiences Kluge paints here are jarring, poignant, and imbued with meaning. Seventy years later, we can still see our own reflections in the upheaval of a single day in 1945. Praise for Klug “More than a few of Kluge's many books are essential, brilliant achievements. None are without great interest.”—Susan Sontag

In January 1945, the Red Army unleashed its long-awaited thrust into Germany with terrible fury. One by one the provinces and great cities of the German East were captured by the Soviet troops. Breslau, capital of Silesia, a city of 600,000 people stood firm and was declared a fortress by Hitler. A bitter struggle raged as the Red Army encircled Breslau, then tried to pummel it into submission while the city's Nazi leadership used brutal methods to keep the scratch German troops fighting and maintain order. Aided by supplies flown in nightly and building improvised weapons from torpedoes mounted on trolleys to an armored train, the men of Fortress Breslau held out against superior Soviet forces for three months. The price was fearful. By the time Breslau surrendered on May 6, 1945, four days after Berlin had fallen, 50.00,000 soldiers and civilians were dead, the city a wasteland. Breslau was pillaged, its women raped and every German inhabitant driven out of the city which became Wroclaw in post-war Poland. Based on official documents, newspapers, letters, diaries and personal testimonies, this is the bitter story of Hitler's Final Fortress.

Leni Riefenstahl is larger than life. From the lure of her persona as it enters our homes via television to our pleasure in the recognition of her film images at rock concerts, to her place as part of the history of the Nazi period, Riefenstahl lives on in our imagination and in our cultural productions. Thus, the editors' introduction to this volume examines the manner in which Riefenstahl 'haunts' debates on aesthetics and politics, and how her legacy reverberates in the contemporary cultural scene. The editors view the collection as a three-part framework. The essays in the opening section of the book show that Riefenstahl is still very much alive and well - and controversial - in popular culture. Her films continue to determine the way in which we think about the Nazi period, providing instantly recognizable images and messages that often go unquestioned. We cannot separate these phenomena from Riefenstahl's years of avid self-fashioning. The second section of the book offers treatments of the shifting, mobile relationship between Riefenstahl's stubborn attempts to create and control her personae and her reactions to others' re-appropriations of the meanings of her life and work. Reading the texts and discourses surrounding 'Riefenstahl,' these scholars treat her memoirs - and her repeated assertions about herself - as a springboard into understanding anew how we might approach her films in a productive way. The closing section of the volume comprises essays that go right to the heart of the matter: Riefenstahl's films and photography. The new contexts-theoretical discussions and emerging discourses that animate these essays-include Scarry's treatise on beauty, justice and the global, the problems of history and memory, the place of Riefenstahl's filmmaking technique in contemporary cinema, and her appropriation of German musical traditions. Fueled by the work of a diverse range of scholars, then, Riefenstahl Screened offers an opportunity to rethink the place of Leni Riefenstahl and her work in contemporary culture and in academic discourse. It insists upon a critical self-examination that maps a topography of how scholars and teachers avail themselves of Riefenstahl's corpus.

The existing literature on Japanese prehistory is mostly focussed on describing material culture; this new study surveys the early artifacts and shows that they were either neglected in previous studies or reported of by unfounded and fantastic speculation. The author identifies prehistoric ideas concerning hunting and fishing, the cult of the dead, and the after-life. The cosmological implications of burial topography and stone-circles are as well examined as older written texts from other parts of the world aiding in elucidating the symbols recognized on these remains. This helps to link the Jo-mon materials to other remains of similar or older age from the ancient Near East, China, the Pacific, and ancient America and proves that prehistoric Japan was never really isolated from the rest of the world. Although the method developed in this study, which rejects speculation and bases itself entirely on archaeological remains, permits only the elucidation of a part of the rich spiritual culture of prehistoric Japan; it reveals an abundance of new information concerning the most important religious ideas of mankind: the constant renewal of life, and the belief that death is not the ultimate end.

This book deals with bilingual education in general, but it pays special attention to bilingual education in monolingual areas. One central aim is to study the effects of bilingual programmes during the final stages of Primary and Secondary Education in contexts where the L2 (English) is not normally used as an instrument of social communication in the students' environment, but instead is used only at school, where some subject areas are undertaken totally or partially in this language. The reader interested in bilingual education will find a valuable source of information on different bilingual programmes in the USA and Spain: what schools do and the contents they teach, their timetable and extracurricular activities; the specific objectives that they aim to achieve and the methodology they use, with special reference to the CLIL approach, the schools and the students' level of success with bilingual education, the most common problems that they have to face in monolingual areas and how to solve them.
