This study reflects on previously little well-known forms of mobilising and committing the public during the National Socialist regime, using as an example the so-called National Comrades.
The Nazi state was dominated at the top of the hierarchy by men. But what role did women play in Nazi society? Nicole Kramer takes a look at the closely knit organisational network set up to activate women to fulfill wartime duties. She analyses the way women were recruited to be part of the “fighting homefront.” Where could women go who had been widowed, bombed out or evacuated? This volume is an important contribution to the study of the social politics of the National Socialists.
