The 12-Year Reich: A Social History of Nazi Germany 1933-1945

1971 The 12-Year Reich: A Social History of Nazi Germany 1933-1945 by Richard Grunberger. LOC 69-16189, ISBN 03-076435-1

Publisher's Note

The 12-year Reich, the first comprehensive social study of the Third Reich, shows what the Nazi regime proffered as the 'ideal' society and how the German people responded. Along with the violence, corruption, persecution, public extravaganzas, the ever-present Party, and the cult of the Fuhrer, a ghastly irritation of ordinary life went on.

Book Description

This book is the first comprehensive social study of Nazi Germany. With devastating documentation it shows what the Nazi regime proffered as the 'ideal' society and how the Germany people responded. Divided into chapters as Business, Youth, The Workers, Ritual and Fuhrer Worship, and using examples that range from the horrifying to the ridiculous, Grunberger charts the way Nazi propaganda permeated the everyday lives of German citizens and allowed the Nazis to plunder the nation's institutions and initiated the Holocaust without any significant resistance.
