Germany Under the Nazis

May 4, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - May 5, 2018 @ 1:00 pm

The Nazi seizure of power in Germany led to a global war that affected people throughout the world, but the Nazis also profoundly transformed political and social life within Germany itself through the repressive policies of their totalitarian regime (1933-1945). This seminar features two distinguished historians who will discuss how Hitler’s governing system controlled German society and how Nazi ideas and laws affected families and women—including the more than one million women who served in the German military during World War II.
