Hitlers Furies Wendy Lower s stunning account of the role of German women on the World War II Nazi eastern front powerfully revises history, proving that we have ignored the reality of women s participation in the Holocaust, including as brutal killers The long held picture of German women holding down the home front during the war, as loyal wives and cheerleaders for the F hrer, pales in comparison to Lower s incisive case for the massive complicity, and worse, of the 500,000 young German women she places, for the first time, directly in the killing fields of the expanding Reich Hitler s Furies builds a fascinating and convincing picture of a morally lost generation of young women, born into a defeated, tumultuous post World War I Germany, and then swept up in the nationalistic fervor of the Nazi movement a twisted political awakening that turned to genocide These young women nurses, teachers, secretaries, wives, and mistresses saw the emerging Nazi empire as a kind of wild east of career and matrimonial opportunity, and yet could not have imagined what they would witness and do there Lower, drawing on twenty years of archival and field work on the Holocaust, access to post Soviet documents, and interviews with German witnesses, presents overwhelming evidence that these women werethan desk murderers or comforters of murderous German men that they went on shopping sprees for Jewish owned goods and also brutalized Jews in the ghettos of Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus that they were present at killing field picnics, not only providing refreshment but also taking their turn at the mass shooting And Lower uncovers the stories, perhaps most horrific, of SS wives with children of their own, whose female brutality is as chilling as any in history Hitler s Furies will challenge our deepest beliefs genocide is women s business too, and the evidence can be hidden for seventy years.

  4. I have many issues with this book Where is the research She focuses on a few maybe a dozen women and draws these overarching and unsubstantiated ideas For example, she ll say something like, Terrible things happened in X city in Poland How can we believe women weren t there They were there and must have done terrible things What This logic makes no sense She ll also say, She claims that she had no part in any terrible things but she lied Where is the proof she lied Maybe she di I have many issues with this book Where is the research She focuses on a few maybe a dozen women and draws these overarching and unsubstantiated ideas For example, she ll say something like, Terrible things happened in X city in Poland How can we believe women weren t there They were there and must have done terrible things What This logic makes no sense She ll also say, She claims that she had no part in any terrible things ...

  5. WARNING THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR THOSE WITH A WEAK STOMACH, THE OVERLY PASSIONATE OR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18.This book has taken me a tremendously long amount of time to finish not because it is badly written or long winded, but because it overwhelms the reader s emotions to such a point that you need to put it down and walk away This book is definitely not for the faint of heart, and can only be digested in small, not so easily swallowed mouthfuls.In writing this book the Author pulls on her WARNING THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR THOSE WITH A WEAK STOMACH, THE OVERLY PASSIONATE OR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18.This book has taken me a tremendously long amount of time to finish not because it is badly written or long winded, but because it overwhelms the reader s emotions to such a point that you need to put it down and walk away This book is definitely not for the faint of heart, and can only be digested in small, not so easily swallowed mouthfuls.In writing this book the Author pulls on her twenty years experience as an archival researcher and also things she learnt whilst out doing field work it shows in the way the book is put together that she felt this was a part of history that needed to be told, warts and all, and covers a part of Nazi Germany that has remained untold.Through...

  6. 2.5 I loved the beginning of this book, found it very informative, appalling but informative The author asserts that over half a million women were either involved or consciously looked way, during the Holocaust I must be extremely naive because I had no idea the figures were that high Than I think, how would I have reacted during this situation, when not going along could get one killed One thing I know for sure is that I would not have picnicked on the site of a mass burial The beginning 2.5 I loved the beginning of this book, found it very informative, appalling but informative The author asserts that over half a million women were either involved or consciously looked way, during the Holocaust I must be extremely naive because I had no idea the figures were that high Than I think, how would I have reacted during this situation, when not going along could get one killed One thing I know for sure is that I would not have picnicked on the site of a mass burial The beginning explains the different roles women played under Hitler Nurses, teachers, wives and yes guards the following chapters, detailing the lives of particular women were not as fascinating The author was often repetitive, information was related in a very academic fashion, or like a cut and paste job from a biography Yes, the information was th...

  7. There have been many books, case studies and articles about the Holocaust and many of them have had a special focus but this is the first time I recall seeing an in depth look at the roles of German women in the Nazi regime This was a rather ambitious project, with a specific focus and I thought it was compelling First of all, let me say that this is a tough book to read without feeling sick to your stomach That has nothing to do with the abilities of the author of course I didn t expect thi There have been many books, case studies and articles about the Holocaust and many of them have had a special focus but this is the first time I recall seeing an in depth look at the roles of German women in the Nazi regime This was a rather ambitious project, with a specific focus and I thought it was compelling First of all, let me say that this is a tough book to read without feeling sick to your stomach That has nothing to do with the abilities of the author of course I didn t expect this book to be a happy walk in th...

  8. I m sorry to say that this book did not resonate with me The premise was to prove that German women wereinvolved in the Holocaust than history tells us I don t feel that the author proved that at all Certainly there were some women who actively participated in the atrocities of the death camps and several were brought to trial after the war The author includes them in her narrative but does not provide conclusive information about other women that she mentions or German women in genera I m sorry to say that this book did not resonate with me The premise was to prove that German women wereinvolved in the Holocaust than history tells us I don t feel that the author proved that at all Certainly there were some women who actively participated in the atrocities of the death camps and several were brought to trial after the war The author includes them in her narrative but does not provide conclusive information about other women that she mentions or German women in general Her theory that women married to SS men immediately classified them as perpet...

  9. This is an interesting book that again takes us back to the horrors of the 1930s and 1940s taking a look at what happened One of the most absorbing topics to come out of WW2 is the question of how entire populations could have bought into the genocide and terror of the period The faulty science, history and religion folklore preached by the Third Reich was accepted and indeed adopted by the majority of the population of Germany and the so called German states Here we look at the women who This is an interesting book that again takes us back to the horrors of the 1930s and 1940s taking a look at what happened One of the most absorbing topics to come out of WW2 is the question of how entire populations could have bought into the genocide and terror of the period The faulty science, history and religion folklore preached by the Third Reich was accepted and indeed adopted...

  10.

What I really didn t know at all was the level of direct involvement in di...

  11. It s very unfortunate that this book is so badly organized and repetitive, because Lower s research into female German participation in the Holocaust on the Eastern Front is in many ways highly valuable Reviewers here complain that Lower s research sample of some thirteen German women enablers accomplices perpetrators is too small to be statistically significant or even remotely representative, but as Lower points out at the very end of the book, when such an observation would have been so muc It s very unfortunate that this book is so badly organized and repetitive, because Lower s research into female German participation in the Holocaust on the Eastern Front is in many ways highly valuable Reviewers here complain that Lower s research sample of some thirteen German women enablers accomplices perpetrators is too small to be statistically significant or even remotely representative, but as Lower points out at the very end of the book, when such an observation would have been so muchhelpful inform...
