Frauen: German Women Recall the Third Reich

Frauen: German Women Recall the Third Reich - Alison Owings My book has a different cover, and I read it over ten years ago. I kept it primarily for research purposes, but if I remember anything from it I think it is a combination of the justifications people will use to do things that are wrong, and that living during The Third Reich as an apolitical, non-Jewish person was a lot more complicated than people in general seem to realize. (Particularly when we become more aware of what the current political state of the world is and our own responses [or lack thereof] to them). I would recommend this book for a different perspective on this history of the Third Reich.
