Women in the Third Reich

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:
Women in the Third Reich

Hitler believed a larger, racially purer population would enhance Germany’s military strength and provide settlers to colonize conquered territory in eastern Europe. The Third Reich’s aggressive population policy encouraged “racially pure” women to bear as many “Aryan” children as possible.
