There have been numerous histories of World War II and many analyses of the Nazi Party. But what was it like actually to live under the Nazi Regime? Inside Hitler’s Germany attempts to answer this question. This book looks at all aspects of life under the Nazis, including during the early 1930s, when Nazism brought economic benefits and before the full horrors of the racism at the heart of the regime were revealed. The role of women and children in the Nazi state, the changing face of popular culture and high art, the position of industry, the part played by the army, and the integration of the Nazi Party itself into German life are covered in full. Important questions, such as the attitude of ordinary Germans to racist policies and the nature of the German resistance to Hitler, are also addressed.
