Hitler's Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields - Wendy Lower - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Hitler's Furies:

How Nazi women kept themselves busy during the war.

My favorite Wendy Lower quote from the book:

"The dramatic stories of these women reveal the darkest side of female activism. They show what can happen when women of varied backgrounds and professions are mobilized for war and acquiesce in genocide."


Questions to ponder while reading Hitler's Furies:


Are women just as capable of evil as men?

Could you have maintained your values during that time?

My thoughts about Hitler's Furies:

It made my heart hurt, I can't believe how many women participated in this.

WWII was such a horrible time.

Feminism includes acknowledging that women can also be accomplished in evil.
