Sexuality and Gender in the Third Reich

Sexuality and Gender in the Third Reich
© Copyright Peter Crawford 2014

For the National Socialists, existing social and behavioural norms that delineated gender roles in Germany were not conducive to their ideological ambitions.
During their time in power, the National Socialists worked to establish their own conceptions regarding gender in German society.
Like other traditional right-wing movements the National Socialists subscribed to the idea of creating a 'new man' that would function as a symbol of the state.
In promoting the concept of creating a 'new man', the National Socialists redefined existing notions on manliness and masculinity.
