Alison Owings interviewed and here records the words of 29 German women during the Third Reich. Working for the Resistance, joining the Nazi Party, outsmarting the Gestapo, hiding a Jewish friend, witnessing the firebombing of Dresden, shooting at Allied planes. Welcoming Allied troops, being a prisoner and being a guard. The women recall their own and others' enthusiasm, doubt, fear, fury, cowardice, guilt and anguish. The story is that of the women, those who did not make policy but were forced to participate in its efforts and to witness its results. What they did and did not do is not just a reflection on them and their country - it also leads us to question what actions we might have taken in their place.

"Frauen goes further than any book I know toward addressing the eternal question of the private citizen's individual responsibility within a fascist regime. Few of Ms. Owings's Frauen can be called heroines, or even passive resisters. But that is her point. This book will be mined by contemporary and future scholars, indeed, by all who puzzle over the moral failures of 'human nature'."--Susan BrownmillerAbout the Author:
