German Women in the Nazi Killing FieldsBook - 2013
Wendy Lower's account of the role of German women on the Eastern Front-not only as plunderers and witnesses but as actual killers-powerfully revises history. Lower, drawing on twenty years of research and fieldwork, access to post-Soviet documents, and interviews with witnesses, presents compelling evidence that these women took part in the shooting of Jews and uncovers the stories of SS wives-with children of their own-whose brutality is as chilling as any in history.
