WOMEN OF NAZI GERMANY
A necessary adaptation to a world in flux
The Nazi regime ended up being a paradox for German women: formerly confined to a traditional matriarchal role, they experienced temporary social emancipation after being entrusted with some very untraditional responsibilities.
Some of them were honorable (standing in for the men who had left for the Front), some horrific (participating in the Third Reich’s crimes).
This two-parts film shows how their place in society changed from the late 1920s to the Nazis’ rise to power, then confining them to the status of "child-bearers" from 1933 to 1939.
