Culture in the Third Reich

Moritz Föllmer

  • Examines how culture was central to the Third Reich's self-understanding and image
  • Addresses the much-debated question of how Germany, a nation known for its cultural achievements, could go along with National Socialism
  • The growth of specialised literature on the arts, popular media and the politics of occupation in large parts of Europe warrants a new scholarly synthesis
  • Relating the everyday experience of people living under Nazism gives us a privileged insight into the question of why so many Germans enthusiastically embraced the regime and identified so closely with it
