The Impact of Nazi Policies on the Position and Role of Women in German
The Impact of Nazi Policies on the Position and Role of Wo hands in Germany, 1933-39 The Nazi regime aimed to utilize the family for its own needs. Women were obligated to marry and rent children, instead of having their own personal decisions. The functions of the family were reduced to the single task of reproduction. They aimed to breakage the family, and to place it as a breeding and rearing institution alone in the service of the totalitarian state. The main objective of Hitler and the Nazis was to increase race to help with Volksgemeinschaft. Germany had a declining origin rate, so they wanted to promote high birth rates among the Aryan race. This was another key element of the policies adopted. Women were encourage to have as many children as possible, save this was not welcome with undesirables like Jews and Black people, only Aryans. The policies used like financial incentives-marriage loans and birth grants, meant that women were placed better when having children. Their role was to maintain high birth rates, and their range and situation was desirable for this role. However all women did not accept this and many did not gain from the measures taken. Underpinned in the policy was the fact that it would restrict women to the dwelling and reduce employment with women, which is what the Nazis wanted. However this was not the case as thither was actually a growth in female employment from 1933-39. This was rattling ironic, the Nazis set out their policies for women to be able to gain from them in having children, however by having less children and getting jobs, women still gained as employment levels rose. not all... ... for with Nazi beliefs, but were actually disagreeing with the traditional, rural beliefs. From this a mixed belief emerges, some women gained as a result of the personalised and individualised genius of the evidence. Even though the Nazi theory and policy were clear , there were epoch-making contradictions and conflicting issues in practise. The roles issued to women were self-undermining and had logistical inconsistencies, for example, they could not have all the men out fighting and women home, who runs factories etc? These contradictions show some of the irony of Nazism. Some women tangle more valued and appreciate and felt more stable, whereas others were sterilised, outlawed, and divorced on spurious grounds. The role and position of women varied between different groups because of the reach of Nazi Policies.
