Mothers in the Fatherland Women, the Family and Nazi Politics

From extensive research, including a remarkable interview with the unrepentant chief of Hitler's Women's Bureau, this book traces the roles played by women - as followers, victims and resisters - in the rise of Nazism. Originally publishing in 1987, it is an important contribution to the understanding of women's status, culpability, resistance and victimisation at all levels of German society, and a record of astonishing ironies and paradoxical morality, of compromise and courage, of submission and survival.

  • "In the Nazi state, women had received the opportunity to create the largest women's organization in history, with the blessings of the blatantly male-chauvinist Nazi Party. Here was the nineteenth-century feminists' vision of the future in nightmare form. In this book I would bring to light the contribution to evil made by Scholtz-Klink and other women leaders, find out what they had done, what they believed they were doing, and why. I would ask how "normal" people (women, in this case) brought Nazi beliefs home in everyday thought and action. Above all, I would record the history of average people without normalizing life in Nazi society. Women's history during the Third Reich lacks the extravagant insanity of Hitler's megalomania; often it is ordinary. But there, at the grassroots of daily life, in a social world populated by women, we begin to discover how war and genocide happened by asking who made it happen. - Preface."@en
