History internal Assessment (The subsidiary role of women in Nazi society)

Extracts from this document...


A. PLAN OF INVESTIGATION > Research question To what extent were the women treated unequally in Nazi Germany? > Methods I have chosen the topic, because I always was interested in discrimination, especially those of women. The idea of two gender worlds, the cult of motherhood seem to be very interesting, especially the reasons and effects of the subsidiary role of women, extremely visible and worth of research, in Third Reich. I will search for the origins of Hitler dreams about ideal family and its main points in Internet. I will compare the role of women before and during the Hitler's regime, basing on historical texts and the sources found. Then, I will select the sources indicating the role of women in Third Reich and read the extracts in historical books to check how far did Hitler go in realization. Two important and counterclaiming sources will be provided for Section C. Section D will analyse the whole investigation and conclusion will be found in Source E. B. SUMMARY OF EVIDENCE > Hitler's ideas and ambitions It is clear Hitler always was dreaming about creating the big state without drawbacks.

> Morris, Terry, ed. 2008. Europe 1870-1991. Second edition. Collins. The extract about the subsidiary role of women in Nazi society comes from the British history book from 2004. The book is used in teaching history, therefore it can be treated as the reliable second-hand source. Although there is no information about authors in the book, they are both considered as objective historians with a vast of background about modern history. The extract is written in scientific language and is full of numerical data about birth rate and amount of working women. The main points are visible and supported by one historicist's opinion. There is no author's opinion. That is why the source is reliable if we want to know historical facts and take the look on it from own perspective. We cannot be sure if some of facts are not omitted in book, so it needs checking with other sources. D. ANALYSIS It is quite clear the role of women in Third Reich was not the same as men, but the answer to what extent were they treated unequally is more complex. Let us study the primary source. Hitler said women make battles for the existence of race.17 Without women the big world of men would not exist. ...read more.
