Describe the role of women in Nazi society.
The condition of the women in the Nazi society was worst. In other words, they had no role to play. In 1933, Hitler said: “In my state, the mother is the most important citizen.” But the actions showed that it was not true. In Nazi Germany, women were not treated equally to the men. It was taught that if women became the part of the democratic struggle, it would destroy the society.
Girls were taught to become good mothers and remain pure in the race and bear racially desirable children. If they were not able to do this, they were punished and not favoured in society. The women who bore racially desirable children were even awarded, get concessions in movie tickets and railway fares, etc. They also rewarded women with the bronze, silver and gold depending on the number of children produced by the women.
Those who maintained relations with the Jews, Poles and Russians were made to walk in the town with shaved heads, blackened faces and placards hanging around their neck mentioning “I have sullied the honour of the nation.” For such criminal offences, women were even sent to the jail and had to leave their family and children.
