9780140136753: A Social History of the Third Reich (Penguin history)

Hitler's Germany was horrific, yet along with the violence, the corruption, the persecution, the ever-present Party and the cult of the Fuehrer a ghastly imitation of ordinary life went on. How did people talk during the Third Reich? What films could you see? What political jokes did they tell? Did Nazi ranting about the role of women correspond with reality? And what was the impact of the regime on farmers and the family, the Churches and civil services, health care, education, "justice", the army and the arts? The author offers brief accounts of the collapse of the Weimar Republic and the treatment of the Jews, but his main aim is to capture the unique, nightmarish flavour and texture of the times.
