Selling Sex in the Reich

Prostitutes in German Society, 1914-1945

Victoria Harris

  • Focuses on the voices and experiences of the prostitutes themselves
  • Develops a nuanced picture of their backgrounds, attitudes, and reasons for entering the trade
  • Broadens out to look at the broad range of public responses to prostitution over the period, from law enforcement agencies to social workers and doctors
  • Identifies a remarkable consistency in the development of public attitudes to prostitution, from Wilhelmine Germany, through the Weimar years and into the Third Reich
