Women in Nazi Germany

nazi policy
Nazi Policy

It was official Nazi policy to encourage

more births and prevent racial mixing.

Why?

  • The Nazis were scared that the German population was growing too slowly and other countries such as Poland and Russia were growing faster.
  • The German people were becoming racially impure due to intermarriage with ‘inferior groups’ like the Jews.

‘The female bird preens herself

for her mate and hatches her

eggs for him. Women have the

same task.’

Joseph Goebbels

‘Equal rights for women

means they are valued

for the job nature has

given them.’

Adolf Hitler

‘German women wish in the main

to be wives and mothers, They

do not wish to be comrades.

They have no longing for the

office. A cosy home, a loved

husband and a multitude of

happy children are closer to

their hearts.’

  • It was difficult to get access to birth control and there were strict laws against abortions.
  • The most productive mothers were awarded special medals each year at a ceremony on the birthday of Hitler’s mother.
  • Lebensborn homes were set up – unmarried women could stay there and get pregnant by a ‘racially pure’ SS soldier.
