As early as 1920, the NSDAP had advocated for the careful abolition of civil liberties throughout Germany. With their attainment of power in 1933, they were finally able to preside over the realisation of this goal. For those who, by the accident of birth, were a part of the Nazi party’s vision of a utopian state, the first several years of their rule was a paradise.
This seminar explores their impact on the lives of those who were not. With a special emphasis on the regime’s attitudes towards women, and with consideration for the treatment of ethnic and cultural minorities, this session will look at the impact of National Socialism on the lives of regular people.
