This work provides a unique service to historians by identifying over 150 places in Austria, Germany, France and the United States that are in some way associated with Adolf Hitler. The entry on Braunau am Inn (upper Austria) gives information on Hitler's birthplace, which is now a school for handicapped children. The entry for Klesheim Palace, built in 1700-1709 and renovated to Hitler's tastes for his guests, details such visitations as that of Benito Mussolini: On April 22, 1941, the two dictators met at the palace to discuss the Italian contribution to the war effort and German influence in Italy. Each entry contains background information on the site and Hitler's connection to it, including relevant biographical data. Much of the information is translated from German sources and has never been printed in English before. The sites are grouped within their cities and are thoroughly indexed for easy access to information on every site.
Lehrer is also the author of Wannsee House and the Holocaust.
