9780099572282: Hitler's Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields

[MP3-CD audiobook format in Vinyl case.]

[Read by Suzanne Toren]

Wendy Lower's stunning account of the role of German women on the Eastern Front -- not only as plunderers and direct witnesses but as actual killers -- powerfully revises history. Many young nurses, teachers, secretaries, and wives saw the emerging Nazi empire as a kind of ''Wild East'' of opportunity, yet they could not have imagined what they would do there. Lower, drawing on twenty years of archival research and fieldwork on the Holocaust, access to post-Soviet documents, and interviews with German witnesses, presents compelling evidence that these women went on ''shopping sprees'' and romantic outings to the Jewish ghettos of Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus; that they were present at killing-field picnics, not only providing refreshment but also taking part in the shooting of Jews. And Lower uncovers the stories of SS wives -- with children of their own -- whose brutality is as chilling as any in history.

Hitler's Furies will challenge our deepest beliefs using evidence hidden for seventy years: women can be just as brutal as men.

From the Inside Flap:

Wendy Lower s stunning account of the role of German women on the World War II Nazi eastern front powerfully revises history, proving that we have ignored the reality of women s participation in the Holocaust, including as brutal killers. The long-held picture of German women holding down the home front during the war, as loyal wives and cheerleaders for the Fuhrer, pales in comparison to Lower s incisive case for the massive complicity, and worse, of the 500,000 young German women she places, for the first time, directly in the killing fields of the expanding Reich.
"Hitler s Furies" builds a fascinating and convincing picture of a morally lost generation of young women, born into a defeated, tumultuous post World War I Germany, and then swept up in the nationalistic fervor of the Nazi movement a twisted political awakening that turned to genocide. These young women nurses, teachers, secretaries, wives, and mistresses saw the emerging Nazi empire as a kind of wild east of career and matrimonial opportunity, and yet could not have imagined what they would witness and do there. Lower, drawing on twenty years of archival and field work on the Holocaust, access to post-Soviet documents, and interviews with German witnesses, presents overwhelming evidence that these women were more than desk murderers or comforters of murderous German men: that they went on shopping sprees for Jewish-owned goods and also brutalized Jews in the ghettos of Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus; that they were present at killing-field picnics, not only providing refreshment but also taking their turn at the mass shooting. And Lower uncovers the stories, perhaps most horrific, of SS wives with children of their own, whose female brutality is as chilling as any in history.
"Hitler s Furies" will challenge our deepest beliefs: genocide is women s business too, and the evidence can be hidden for seventy years.

Descripción Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Hitler s Furies is the untold story of the Holocaust. History has it that the role of women in Nazi Germany was to be the perfect Hausfrau and a loyal cheerleader for the Fuhrer. However, Lower s research reveals an altogether more sinister truth. Lower shows us the ordinary women who became perpetrators of genocide. Drawing on decades of research, she uncovers a truth that has been in the shadows - that women too were brutal killers and that, in ignoring women s culpability, we have ignored the reality of the Holocaust. Shocking . (Sunday Times). Compelling . (Washington Post). Pioneering . (Literary Review). It is a national book award finalist. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780099572282
