Comments Mothers in the Fatherland: Women, the Family and Nazi Politics

  • Lois Bujold

    Harrowing, as all such histories of the Nazi period in Germany are, but lucid. Almost 30 years ago, when it was first published, the writer might have been able to assume a closer knowledge in the reader with the history of which this gives an alternate angle of view, but I think there is enough background to bring most up to speed. I especially appreciated the chapter on the Weimar period, supplying a valuable background for a web of events that did not, after all, arise out of the blue.Koonz g [...]

    Koonz characterizes the Nazi regime as pronatal (in contrast* to Gisela Bock, who references her) but misogynistic. She argues that women played an active and significant part in bringing the Nazi regime to power, but seems to imply that these women were dupes, acting on behalf of their perceived maternal concerns (racism is lumped in). Sex and race were the predominant social markers in Nazi ideology.*I kind of wondered reading Bock if she argued that the Nazis were anti-natal just to be able t [...]


  • Bobbo

    Controversial, I'll give it that, even though i disagree! Basically she argues that most of the women living in germany during WWII are guilty of the holocaust too because they kept up the trappings of a civilized society, despite the fact that they new atrocities were going on.


  • Camilla Tilly

    Claudia Koonz, it says on the inside cover, is a professor in Massachusetts. I guess she has something to prove to herself so she wrote a book with the help of a word book, trying her best at finding the most complicated and never-used words, to use in this book that contains 429 pages of bread text. Obviously she wanted to impress on someone but it certainly was not the ordinary reader that picks up this book thinking that she or he will find out why women chose to follow Hitler when there was [...]

    I was all set to give this book four stars, until I came across this sentence: "Sometimes, like Adam Goeth (portrayed vividly in Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally)ards began to enjoy their work" (412). First of all, she's referring to Amon, not Adam, Goeth. Secondly, the book was called Schindler's Ark, not Schindler's List (apparently it was released in America as Schindler's List, so I'm a little more forgiving of that, but I still think it would have been more responsible to refer to it by [...]

    This book is pretty good for background of the Third Reich but not much else. Most academic reviews are correct in that Koonz doesn't really break new ground and that she claims to focus on common women but the book only focuses on Middle class leaders. I don't knowI just don't get the significance really. Her evidence of women trying to establish autonomy within a male-dominated reform movement is pretty interesting though.


  • Maryann

    This book took me quite a long time to read, even though it was fascinating. It's the sort of book I could only handle in small chunks, about 2-3 days per chapter. I learned a lot from this book, though.


  • Mutaz Ayesh

    Really interesting. the language is really attractive and was a pretty challenging book to read (since English is not my mother language. So many new words, so much new information, eye-opening about the oppression of women in addition to Jews. Loved it!

    Koonz v. Bock? Koonz. Definitely Koonz.
