Sample text

The proclamation did not say what steps would be taken, but it sounded like the beginning of a social war. The speech was all the more curious in that it went on to underline how Germany enjoyed greater security and tranquillity than at any time in the recent past. 41 A little over a month after the Nuremberg rally, on 18 October 1935 Hitler and Himmler broadened the concepts of ‘enemy’ and ‘crime’ the new police were supposed to fight. The Gestapo was not going to vanish after all, nor were the camps.

He now said that the new police watched over the ‘health of the German body politic’, recognized ‘every system of sickness’, and destroyed all ‘destructive cells’. He summed up the mission of the Gestapo as follows: The preventive police mission of a political police is to search out the enemies of state, to watch them and at the right moment to destroy them. In order to fulfil this mission the political police must be free to use every means required to achieve the necessary goal. 50 Best used the comparison between the Gestapo and the army at war, when he wrote that the Gestapo ‘in its struggle against clever, determined and ruthless enemies must claim the same trust and the same powers as an army, which in fulfilment of its task—to destroy an enemy whose behaviour cannot be predicted—also cannot be bound by the letter of the law’.

Hitler was able to scheme behind the scenes, and to manoeuvre himself into that position of trust and understanding. 6 There was a broad perception that the country was experiencing a breakdown of cultural and moral values. 7 Women had the vote and equality in law since 1919, but once the Depression hit, the virtues of the modern ‘new woman’ and emancipation were questioned, especially when issues arose about abortion, working wives (the so-called double-earners), and the falling birth rate. Although historians do not agree that the ‘new woman’ really existed in Weimar and tend to think she was an alarming myth constructed in the mass media of the time, Cornelie Usborne, for one, shows convincingly that there were enough such people to cause anxieties among social conservatives, who worried about upholding traditional marriage, gender roles, and morality.
