National Socialism and Women
Women and National Socialism
by Carolyn Yeager
Our modern, consumerist society has cleverly given the impression that National Socialism is antithetical to the interests of women. Women who have bought into the feminist beliefs that their freedom, their equal opportunity and their salary must be their first considerations, will look upon those who say a woman’s highest and finest role is that of wife and mother with suspicion – or even more likely (and sadly), downright revulsion. Haven’t we come a long way, baby … from that?!
White women choosing not to have children is now commonplace. Often the stated reason is “I don’t want to bring more children into such an unstable (or unpleasant, or overcrowded) world.” Or, “I’m not ready; I want to enjoy myself, or establish myself in a career first.” Is this really what Aryan women want … to cease reproducing their own kind until their own kind ceases to exist?
These women are clearly not thinking with their natural mind; something foreign has wormed its way into their brains. It’s similar to what was taking place in Germany after WW1. Confused thinking brought on by foreign control of their nation and the defeat of 1918, along with terrible economic conditions that put men chronically out of work, had by 1933 reduced the birthrate of women of child-bearing age to 58 out of 1000, less than half what it had been in 1910. For this reason, increasing the birthrate was tantamount to saving the German race itself! Extinction had become a real possibility.
When Adolf Hitler was elected and installed as Chancellor in 1933, he began to implement the program of the NSDAP, the National Socialist German Labor Party. Among the highest priorities were to put all men back to work and to increase the birthrate. Both were accomplished by re-instituting the traditional roles of men and women. Within the next 10 years, most women were won over to National Socialism, content to do their part in the great national resurgence.
How does this apply to the women of America as we stand at the beginning of the 21st Century? Can we believe that National Socialism offers us something positive too? The answer is yes, there are many advantages National Socialism gives women over other ways of organization.
The first concern that women have is their status. Do they become second-class citizens in a male-dominated National Socialist state? Definitely not. National Socialism is based on traditional values, just as volkish paganism and Traditional Christianity. A National Socialist nation is built on the foundation of the family. At the center of the family are children. Children raised in a family learn what it is to be part of a family, including an extended family. From that, they understand they’re part of an even larger unit, a racially homogeneous national family. The woman not only bears the children, but takes on the primary task of raising and teaching them to be healthy and productive members of the nation. In a National Socialist society, there is no higher callingthan that of mother. Mothers are honored.
National Socialism provides an array of resources to prepare young women for a healthy pregnancy and childbirth, and to instruct them in the most enlightened child-care practices for the optimum health and well-being of both themselves and their children. And as a “green” philosophy, National Socialism places the health of its parks and rivers as high as that of its mothers and children.
Another concern today’s women have is their freedom to make personal choices and set their own direction in life. Women want the same freedom that they believe men have enjoyed throughout most of history. But there are consequences to this type of equality of men and women.
The modern right to work means the burden of supporting oneself. Control over one’s own body may mean the “right” of abortion, but it also means the right of either party to dissolve a marriage because they are unhappy, with the resulting constant legal battles to demand payment from the economically stronger partner, as well as misery for the children who are often shuttled between homes.
In contrast to this, National Socialism encourages a more traditional role for women, allowing them to remain at home as wives and mothers. In no way, however, do women have less legal rights than men. Both men and women have duties and responsibilities; the difference is they have those that are appropriate for their gender.
Speaking at the opening of a women’s exhibition in Berlin in 1933, Dr. Joseph Goebbels assured the women it would be “crazy” to think of driving them from public life, professions, work and bread winning, but there were two areas that must remain for men alone: politics and the military.
National Socialism is not blind, and recognizes that women are creative, intelligent, capable contributors to the common good, and individual talents should be recognized and utilized, especially of those who cannot bear children or who are past child-bearing age.
For women concerned with the quality of personal relationships, Goebbels got to the heart of the matter when he said: “Looking back over the past years of Germany’s decline, we come to the frightening, nearly terrifying, conclusion that the less German men were willing to act as men in public life, the more women succumbed to the temptation to fill the role of the man. The feminization of men always leads to the masculinization of women.”
When we look around at our society today, with growing numbers of ever bolder gays and lesbians, we see this unnatural lifestyle Goebbels describes modeled for our schoolchildren as normal and natural. We see our women serving in the military and police and fire departments; wesee our men becoming nurses and child-care workers. Rather than resist this trend, too many of us try to accommodate it.
A National Socialist party has a responsibility to build men. Hitler once said in a speech to women, “As long as we have sound men – and we National Socialists will see to that – there will be no women throwing hand grenades in Germany.” His female audience gave him enthusiastic applause. A “sound man” was then and is still today described as virtuous, steadfast, hard, and determined. Determined because men are required to defend and protect their nation. Hard because they must go up against the organized thuggery that is unleashed onto our streets by Jews and their leftist collaborators seeking to destroy us. Steadfast because their children depend on them; and virtuous because that has always been the nature of Aryan peoples.
Virtue gives qualities such as bravery, loyalty, honesty, cleanliness, trustworthiness, and respect for life and innocence.Assuredly, men who do not have or strive for all these qualities are not true National Socialist men, no matter if they wear a uniform or wave a swastika.
It isn’t only women who are asked to put the group as a whole before theindividual self, for even greater sacrifice is asked of our men. What woman prefers a coward who buckles to an alien system for temporary safety or benefits, to a partner who is willing to stand and fight for the values and continuing existence of his race?
In the end, the greatest appeal of National Socialism to a woman may be that it gives her a heroic National Socialist man as a partner. It is the honor with which they regard each other that can raise their relationship to a true marriage made in Heaven, or Valhalla. And what more can a woman ask?

Adolf Hitler and Women
Hitler and Women
by Carolyn Yeager
A New York Times journalist wrote in 1932 that: “Women have been among the strongest pillars of Hitlerism from its very inception … At Nazi meetings the proportion of women in attendance is surprisingly large. Hitler has a fascination for Germany’s weaker sex …”
Fifty percent of the National Socialist vote in ’32 came from women. Yet anti-Nationalist and feminist writers subject their readers to the worst kinds of bias to explain away this female popularity, even to suggesting that Hitler cultivated his female fan-base through an occult “mystical appeal,” mesmerism, and magic powers delivered through his eyes! Even though some women felt the caring and commitment that came from his direct gaze, this simply is not true, as a close look at the women in his life will show.
The first woman Hitler loved was his mother, Klara. As her firstborn, she doted on him, but soon a younger brother, followed by a sister, required her attention. Adolf grew into an independent, adventure-loving youth, vividly interested in the world around him. He clashed with his father over his choice of career, but not with his mother who allowed him his own direction.
It was his mother’s illness and untimely death from cancer at the age of 46 that, only 2 years after his father’s death, gives us a glimpse of Hitler’s strong emotions. According to the family doctor, 15 year-old Adolf returned home from school in Vienna to keep constant watch over her, applying the painful, expensive treatments himself, and even helping with the household chores. When, right before Christmas, she died, the doctor later said he had never seen anyone so overcome with grief as Adolf Hitler at the loss of his mother.
In 1917, when news of Germany’s unconditional surrender was announced at the Pomeranian hospital where the now 28-year-old Hitler had been taken because of mustard gas damage to his eyes, he was similarly devastated. He describes in Mein Kampf being unable to listen to the end of the speech, going to his bed and burying his face in his pillow, the pain in his heart overwhelming the terrible pain in his eyes.
This death sentence imposed upon hisbeloved Germany, for which he had fought and sacrificed for four years, caused him to determine then and there that he would enter politics. He became an organizer, directing all his life energies to the cause of developing a nationalist political party that could take power. A vegetarian and an ascetic, he did not drink or smoke and he did not seek out the companionship of women.
Yet he never failed to appreciate the importance of women’s support of his young Party and to credit them for it. Years after his 1923 prison term, he reminisced that it waswomen who kept the National Socialist faith alive while his male followers indulged in acrimony. “I left jail after thirteen months imprisonment to find (women) had sustained the movement. Instead of weighing the odds in a prudent and rational manner, they followed the dictates of their hearts and have stood by me, emotionally speaking, to this day.”
Before 1931, many women’s organizations supported Nationalism, some openly advocating for Hitler’s NSDAP. Guida Diehl’s Nationalist Newland Movement predated the Nazi Party by at least six years. She recruited from the well-educated, Protestant establishment and wrote in her memoirs of her first impressions of Hitler in mid-1920s: “Serious, warm, and natural – he set out his goals. He brought nothing new. Just a summary of the very best of our national tradition. He offered a dynamic organization where others relied on uninspired party politics.”
Catholic women were more cautious, but had long endorsed socially and politically conservative views, and had begun calling for an “authoritarian democracy.”
In 1931, several national and national socialist women’s organizations joined together under the NS-Frauenschaft, which was later declared the official organization for women in the Third Reich. Gertrud Scholtz-Klink led this group from 1934 until 1945. She had begun by organizing women in Baden, a tiny Catholic, liberal state in southwest Germany,after being left a widow with six children in 1928. As the Reichsfrauenfuhrerin (Reich Women’s Leader), she regularly had face-to-face meetings with the Fuehrer and shared the speaking platform with him during major women’s rallies.
Though suffering great hardship after the war, including prison time, Scholtz-Klink disappointed and infuriated a world that expected her to show remorse for her Nazi past. After interviewing her in 1987, feminist author Claudia Koonz wrote, “… this was not an ex-Nazi. She remained as much a Nazi now as she had been in 1945 or 1933. Without a trace of irony, she recalled, ‘If you could have seen the women of Berlin defending their city with their lives against the Russians, then you would believe how deeply German women loved our Fuehrer.’ ”
Scholtz-Klink, writes Koonz, “worried about young Germans’ need to be proud of their past, by which she meant Hitler. ‘You see, we genuinely believed in our ideals … national greatness, pride, our heritage.’ ” And speaking of Goebbels in particular, but including other Nazi leaders, she said, “You can’t imagine what gentlemen they all were.”
In 1932, recognizing the filmmaking genius of Leni Riefenstahl, Hitler arranged a meeting and told her that when he took office, “you must make my films.” After she completed the short film, Victory of Faith, he promised her unlimited resources and complete artistic control to film the 1934 Party rally in Nuremberg. The result, the immortal Triumph of the Will, won international acclaim, including the Paris Film Prize of 1937.
In a 1936 essay contest on the theme “Why I Became a Nazi” that attracted 500 essays, 36 of them were from women ranging in age from 17 to 73 who revealed a passionate Germanic idealism and a personal connection with Hitler. “At last, I found a man willing to die for his faith; a feeling rushed through me like fire,” wrote one. Another said, “Whoever has looked deeply into our Fuehrer’s eyes will never, not even years later, forget such a powerful experience!”
Luise Jost, whose son, an SA member, was killed shortly after her husband died penniless in 1928, received a surprise visit from Hitler. She wrote, “In my pain and grief, Adolf Hitler came to me and looked deep into my eyes. He pressed my hand, and I knew that my boy did not die in vain. This man is worth a life sacrificed in his service … I became a National Socialist.”
When Hitler met his future mistress and wife, Eva Braun, she was a 17 year old clerk to his personal photographer Heinrich Hoffmann. She fell firmly in love the first time she saw him come into the shop. Hitler began showing her little favors and courtesies; he even took her to the theater. Though he reportedly had other liaisons at the time, he eventually settled on Eva.
There is an effort by some to portray Eva Braun as an innocent young woman who suffered injury at the hands of a callous leader. But Eva pled to Hitler again and again that she wanted nothing more than to be with him, under any conditions, for the rest of her life. After two suicide attempts, in 1932 and 1935, Hitler was so impressed, or convinced, that he set her up in a house near his own apartment, and later invited her to move into his mountain retreat at Berchtesgaden.
Eva knew his intentions were to never marry, as he was already married to the German people. She spent her time exercising, reading novelettes and writing in her diary, where she famously vented her complaints and unhappiness that Hitler had so little time for her.
But according to Hitler’s servant, Heinz Linge, “He telephoned her every second day. If his adjutants or Bormann were flying to Munich, he would give them letters to Eva.” He took to addressing her within his intimate circle with tender Austrian words of affection. Traudl Junge, Hitler’s long-time secretary, reminisced that he would pat her hand, calling her Mein Patscherl.
A letter from Hitler to Eva after the 1944 assassination attempt reveals the loving bond that had developed between them:
Mein Liebes Tschapperl, Don’t worry about me. I’m fine though perhaps a little tired. I hope to come home soon and then I can rest in your arms. I have a great longing for rest, but my duty to the German people comes before everything else. Don't forget that the dangers I encounter don't compare with those of our soldiers at the Front. I thank you for the proof of your affection and ask you also to thank your esteemed father and your most gracious mother for their greetings and good wishes. I am very proud of the honor - please tell them that - to possess the love of a girlwho comes from such a distinguished family. I have sent to you the uniform I was wearing during the unfortunate day. It is proof that Providence has protected me and we have nothing more to fear from our enemies. From my whole heart, Your A.H.
Geliebter, I am beside myself. I am dying of anxiety now that I know you are in danger. Come back as soon as possible. I feel as if I am going insane. The weather is beautiful here and everything seems so peaceful that I am ashamed of myself … You know I have always told you that I would die if anything happened to you. From our first meeting on, I have promised myself to follow you wherever you go, even to death. You know I live only for your love. Yours, Eva.
By 1945, a matured Eva rose to unexpected heights. On April 15, she managed to fly from Munich to the Chancellery in Berlin. Hitler ordered her to return to Munich. She refused and reportedly said, "Do you think I will let you die alone?"
In the early hours of April 29, Hitler and Eva Braun were married. On that same day, according to Traudl Junge, when Hitler summoned her to record his Last Will and Political Testament he apologized for troubling her and enquired “with his usual kindness” whether all of her needs were being taken care of.
In his Will, Hitler calls Eva his wife three times, ending with “I myself and my wife … choose death.”
A gentleman and man of honor to the end, we can say proudly that Adolf Hitler inspired steadfast devotion and uncommon strength from women as well as men - women who held him, and still hold him, in the highest esteem, as he did them.

How women were treated in the Third Reich.
This is a short slide show of various politcal posters used in Nazi Germany in the 1940's. As a way to promote the Aryan women and the ideal women, these posters illustrate what a German women should look like and how she should serve her country.
A short excerpt of how school children address their teacher illustrates the allegiance of Hitler's Youth to the Nazi Party.
"We also greeted our teachers this way in school. As soon as the teacher entered our classroom, we would all stand up from our seats. While the teacher walked to his desk in front of the class, he would raise his hand and say, "Heil Hitler", or he'd stand at attention by his desk and give the greeting. Then the whole class replied, "Heil Hitler, Herr Lehrer."

Adolf Hitler - Ehrenmann
"If it is said that a man’s world is the State, that the man’s world is his struggle, his willingness to devote himself to the community, one might perhaps say that a woman’s world is a smaller one. For her world is her husband, her family, her children, and her home. But where would the larger world be if no one wanted to care for the small world? How could the larger world survive if there was no one who would make the cares of the smaller world the content of his life?
However, these two worlds are never opposed to one another. They mutually complement each other, they belong together, just as man and wife belong together.
Every child to which she gives birth is a battle which she wages in her Volk’s fateful question of to be or not to be."
- Adolf Hitler
Here are some amazing women who lived in an "oppressive" "patriarchy" "nazi" society.
Thea von Harbou
Women in Germany played a pivotal role in all aspects of life and also in the second world war and sacrificed a lot. There are two halves of the whole, remember that.
