WOMEN IN NAZI GERMANY HISTORY BY: DANIELA SILVA FOR: TOVAH TABACNIK GRADE: 9.5 DATE: 13/10/06 2006-2007 Throughout centuries, women have been subject to unjust and upsetting perceptions, due to the fact that they have never been allowed to express themselves as they wants and due to the view of society, that male have to be the dominant figure. It is through events that have happened in time, that have made them stronger and able to get strength to be now, open minded and able to express in a different and overwhelming manner as they had never done before. The topic to be portrayed on this piece of work is how women in Nazi Germany were treated and how this theme relates to the novel the wave. In Nazi Germany, women were inferior to their male generation. Here the ways there were treated, their works and many other aspects will be analyzed, to see their hope and effort each time they fought for their right and the things they wanted to do. During the Second World War women were expected to fulfill and do a lot of the roles they had done in the First World War. Again they were called to work in industries, farms, as nurses in the forces but not on the fort line. ...read more.


It is estimated that 92,000 of them died in the camp by starvation, executions, or weakness. During the last months of the war, and due to the rapid advance of the Russian Army, the SS decided to exterminate as many prisoners as they could, in order to avoid any testimony about what happened in the camp. For example, 130 babies and pregnant women were gassed in March 1945."(3) Here they where treated horribly and here it is also showed that women had not any rights and although men where also treated really badly in concentration camps, women were treated worst. They were badly punished, they had to work in a really drastic and heavy way, and no suffering was accepted. It was a really difficult time in which many women died, more than men because they had less strength and less energy as men did. Gertrud Scholtz-Klink She was a one of the first women to be part of the Nazi organization. But as she could not be pro of women and defend the right for them to be part of something, she was always promoting that women should stay home raising and producing children. "In one speech she pointed out that "the mission of woman is to minister in the home and in her profession to the needs of life from the first to last moment of man's existence" (2) ...read more.


Although women have the opportunity to work and at the same time have children and a stable marriage, many are criticized for not looking for their children and spending more time at work that at home playing or doing homework with their children. Men are simply never blamed for this, and will never be blamed if something happens to the children, because they supposal in the man of the house and should be working, providing money for the house and the mother should be at home cleaning and looking for their children. Another aspect which is certainly a disrespect to the female sex, is that although the might be working in more difficult job or are working a bigger amount of hours they are still paid less that men. This shows how women in Nazi Germany is compared to now a days, and that still it is really difficult to have in each and every single aspect equality for men and for women. Although many years have passed still women are repressed and are not able to do what they want to do, to dress and look as they want to, to work in the things they want, to share the same problems and they same right with their children and most of all to be able to achieve a total equality between the two sexes and to show that women are the same or more capable of doing the same things as men do. ...read more.
