Filming Women in the Third Reich
Available in Stock
In 1936, Goebbels stated that 'a government that controls art will remain for ever', and the German film industry became inextricably linked with National Socialist propaganda. This book is an historical evaluation of the role and image of women in the feature films of the Third Reich. Fox challenges current perceptions of the National Socialist position with regard to women and examines the creation of a female film culture, as well as the 'blurring' of gender distinctions as a result of the war.
