Life in the Third Reich: Daily Life in Nazi Germany, 1933-1945 by Paul Roland, is an interesting look at the everyday life of a German citizen in the years following Adolph Hitler’s rise to power. Right off, let me say how chilling some of the events in this book are in light of what is happening in the United States right now (July 2018). The similarities are unsettling to say the least.

Roland has clearly spent a great deal of time researching this subject and that combined with excerpts from German citizens, and The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, by William L. Shirer, make this book a must-read for the military historian, and anyone with questions of how did the Nazi regime happen.

I love the personal aspect of the stories found within the pages of Life in the Third Reich. The basic mechanics of the time are well known but due to perhaps guilt, there is not an awful lot written by typical Germans of the time. Most books cover the challenges of the survivors of Hitler’s brutality, leaving the historian to delve deeper in order to find out what the average German was doing, or thinking at the time.

Life in the Third Reich will answer those questions, and perhaps give an insight into what might happen in the US. Impossible? Exactly what the average German thought back in the 30’s.

This book describes how the German people were brainwashed into supporting Hitler's stance prior to the second world war.
Later, as atrocities were perpetrated, some were so horrified and sickened that they turned away and formed resistance groups.
But even after the war ended and the Nuremberg trials documented the horrors that went on, some people refused to believe anything bad had happened.
Unfortunately some of the non believers are still around today. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Life in the Third Reich draws extensively on interviews, letters and diaries from the earliest days of the Nazi Party to the final hours of the thousand-year Reich to reveal how the Hitler cult influenced and corrupted every aspect of life, from education, health, business, the press, the judicial system and the Church to sport, culture, work and the family. It reveals the stark contrast between the myth of 'One People, One Fuhrer' perpetuated by Nazi propaganda and the harsh realities of life in a dictatorship. Life in the Third Reich challenges the popular view of Nazi Germany as a nation united behind their despotic leader and asks 'What would you have done? Would you have behaved any differently if you had lived in Hitler's Germany?'… (more)
