The Forgotten Soldiers: Women in the Military Service of Nazi Germany
June 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
featuring Karen Hagemann, James G. Kenan Distinguished Professor of History
The German government deployed more than a million women in war service between 1939 and 1945, but this aspect of Nazi history has received little attention. Karen Hagemann will discuss how and why women served in the Nazi military system, and also explain why women’s military role in the Nazi era has been downplayed or ignored in the collective memory of World War II.
