Publisher's Summary

After the failure of the Weimar Republic, the Nazis believed their mission was to "masculinize" life in Germany. Hermann Goering told women, "Take a pot, a dustpan and a broom, and marry a man", but many still became active participants in murder and mayhem. From the Reich Bride Schools through the Bund Deutscher Mädel and the bizarre Lebensborn Aryan breeding programme to the brothels of the Sicherheitsdienst, this book covers the lives of women in the Third Reich, concentrating on those who sought personal power and influence amid the chaos and death.

Answers a lot of questions about women in the third reich

If you ever wondered why women are attracted to the most evil of men? Look no further then nazi women. This is a must listen for anyone who wants to understand the psyche of human nature. Very good listen.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend to some of my friends that enjoy digging deeper into history.

If you’ve listened to books by Paul Roland before, how does this one compare?

First book I've read by this author.

Which character – as performed by Gabrielle Glaister – was your favorite?

NA

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but it was still fascinating.

Any additional comments?

Narrator did a good job, but the author should have been more in-depth for a history examining this subject. The material the author presented was enriching.

Sensationalised Misleading Title

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The title should be 'Women During The Nazi Era'. Whilst there is accounts of some truly evil Women, there is also accounts of Women who were opposed to the Nazi regime who were definitely not attracted to Evil. Also a lot is written about Women who were partners to men before the Nazis rose to power, so they were not attracted to evil just men who became evil as their power grew.

What did you like best about this story?

I found the book interesting, emotional at times and liked the insight into how terrible it must have been for a lot of Women during that period. The story of the bravery of Women risking their lives to protest the deportation of their Jewish husbands at Rosenstrasse and actually succeeding in getting them back I found particularly uplifting.

What aspect of Gabrielle Glaister’s performance might you have changed?

Whilst Gabrielle's voice was pleasant enough, she really needed to research how to pronounce German names as it became slightly annoying. Albert Speer is pronounced Shpeer not Spear and Reinhard Heydrich whose name changed every time, from hay-drick, to hay-drish, to hi-drish to finally correct as hi-drick!

Do you think Nazi Women needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not under the same title theme for sure. I'd be interested in more Women's accounts of how life was during the Nazi era.

Any additional comments?

Overall worth 'reading' but take the title with a pinch of salt!
