    Mention Nazi women and Holocaust, and minds will fixate at least, my mind will fixate on the image of Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS a buxom blonde camp guard sporting decolletage, high boots and improbable jodhpurs Wendy Lower wishes to replace that fantasy with a reality less titillating butfrightening Hitler s Furies were teachers, nurses, and secretaries who dutifully carried out the day to day business of genocide often with reluctance, occasionally with enthusiasm conscio...

    Based on the NYT s blog interview with Wendy it is clear that she, her agent and publisher sacrificed the integrity of a serious subject in rder to publish a commercial book that does not prove its marketing claims After decades of research Wendy had a theory she sought to prove that countless thousands of young German women participated in the the killing fields in the East The problem is that she only has little bits and fragments of information on twelve women in the book and one full forc Based on the NYT s blog interview with Wendy it is clear that she, her agent and publisher sacrificed the integrity of a serious subject in rder to publish a commercial book that does not prove its marketing claims After decades of research Wendy had a theory she sought to prove that countless thousands of young German women participated in the the killing fields in the East The problem is that she only has little bits and fragments of information on twelve women in the book and one full forced confession by the Stasi Based on her answers can plainly see that she cut the book down to size to appeal to the bottom line These days the book must be about 200 pages in order to sell well 300 kills sales The book s chapters are fleshed out since she does not have enough material to support her thesis The book really is about 100 pages chapter 2 5 And what about her claim that she can place 500,000 German women in the East I emailed her and her answer is that the you have to sift through t...

    Hitler s Furies by Wendy Lower is described as a revelatory new history of the role of German women in the Holocaust, not only as plunderers and direct witnesses, but as actual killers on the eastern front during World War II The book claims to powerfully revise history and proves that we have ignored the reality of women as brutal killers during the Holocaust While Lower does provide statements and references that depict women as active participants in the Holocaust rather than supportive wiv Hitler s Furies by Wendy Lower is described as a revelatory new history of the role of German women in the Holocaust, not only as plunderers and direct wi...

    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...

    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 wer...

    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 a...

    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 by the majority of the population of Germany and the so called German states Here we look at the women who we...

    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 ...

    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 ...
