Women took part in perilous resistance missions during World War II alongside a much larger number of male resistance agents. This book presents the lives of eight women who, at profound risk to themselves, chose to challenge the Third Reich. Hailing from diverse regions of the world--the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and North America--the women shared privileged backgrounds of financial and social prominence as well as a profound sense of social justice. As to their deeds with the Resistance, they ranged from forging documents and hiding persecuted Jews to orchestrating sabotage operations and crafting a nonviolent protest movement within Nazi Germany itself. As could be expected, the costs were great, capture and execution among them, but the women's achievements did succeed in helping to win the war.

Sabotage, Subversion und Spionage: 39 Agentinnen zogen für England in den Kampf gegen Hitler-Deutschland und riskierten bei tollkühnen Aktionen ihr Leben. Schillernde Frauen wie die schüchterne indische Prinzessin Noor Inayat Khan, die hübsche Parfumverkäuferin Violette Szabo oder die polnische Gräfin Krystyna Skarbek, die auf Langlaufskiern die Hohe Tatra durchquerte. Und es war eine Frau, die die Einsätze dieser unbeugsamen Frauen plante und leitete. Ihr Name ist Vera Atkins. Sie war die treibende Kraft hinter der Operation. Die Autoren erzählen die tragischen und abenteuerlichen Geschichten dieser mutigen Frauen, die Ian Fleming zu seinen James-Bond-Romanen inspirierten.

From extensive research, including a remarkable interview with the unrepentant chief of Hitler’s Women’s Bureau, this book traces the roles played by women – as followers, victims and resisters – in the rise of Nazism. Originally publishing in 1987, it is an important contribution to the understanding of women’s status, culpability, resistance and victimisation at all levels of German society, and a record of astonishing ironies and paradoxical morality, of compromise and courage, of submission and survival.

Essay from the year 2005 in the subject History Europe - Germany - National Socialism, World War II, grade: A (originality!), La Trobe University Melbourne, course: Nazi Germany and Europe, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The “marriage” of the party and the Volk (people) was celebrated once a year (mid-September) in Nazi Germany at the infamous party rally in Nuremberg. A central aspect of the Hitler State was Gleichschaltung (coordination) and hence the establishment of the Volksgemeinschaft (Volk-community). Gleichschaltung meant to bring all sectors of state and society under Nazi control. In this sense, the Nazis already could look back on remarkable achievements in 1933 as my previous essay [Tobias Schepanek, Gleichschaltung: Nazi Accomplishments after Six Months in Power, Melbourne, Australia (attached to this essay)] points out. But what kind of resistance against this policy occurred within the German people, and where did the Nazis fail to reach their goal of total coordination? To answer this question and to measure the success of resistance, my essay will also raise the question of what role Gleichschaltung played in the establishment of the Hitler-State before the outbreak of War in 1939.

Covering issues such as the legacy of the World Wars, the female voter, propaganda, occupied lands, the judiciary, public opinion and resistance, this volume furthers the debate on how Nazi Germany operated. Gone are the post-war stereotypes--instead there is a more complex picture of the regime and its actions, one that shows the instability of the dictatorship, its dependence on a measure of consent as well as coercion.
