About this book
A shocking new history of the role of German women in the Holocaust, not only as plunderers and direct witnesses, but as actual killers on the Eastern Front. Draws on 20 years of archival and field work on the Holocaust, access to post-Soviet documents, and interviews with German witnesses. 'A grim, original study of the nurses, teachers, secretaries and wives who made up a good half of Hitler's murderers' "Kirkus"
History has it that the role of women in Nazi Germany was to be the perfect Hausfrau, produce the next Aryan generation and be a loyal cheerleader for the Fuhrer. This book presents overwhelming evidence that the women in these territories actively participated in the mass murder - and some became killers.
