dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the rhetoric of East German domestic and foreign politics and how issues of race and racism were handled. It covers the time period from the early 1950s through the 1960s, while contextualizing East German politics with German politics of the Weimar and Nazi eras. Accounts of racism towards Jews, Slavs and groups from Africa, Latin America and South East Asia are examined. The thesis attempts to show that in the self-proclaimed anti-racist state of the German Democratic Republic (GDR), racism marked both domestic and foreign politics and greatly influenced the Cold War politics of East Germany. The racism that was tolerated and promoted in the early period of the GDR still influences Germany today.en_US
