Daily Life in Nazi-Occupied Europe provides readers with information about political and military affairs, economic life, religious life, intellectual life, and other aspects of daily life in those countries occupied by Nazi Germany during World War II.
By the end of 1940, the Nazis controlled most of Europe, and in 1941 they invaded the Soviet Union to complete their mission of domination. The pattern of human resistance to the occupation was equally widespread-in every country, at least a significant minority of the population fought for human dignity. Why did so many risk their lives and refuse to accept defeat?
This book goes beyond the impact of the occupation on different European countries, examining that impact on individuals who, regardless of what country they lived in, faced a desperate search for food and the constant threat of death. This volume is intended to help readers to see the variety of struggles that contributed to the defeat of the oppressive occupation imposed by the Nazis. Readers will come away with an appreciation of the fact that there were as many types of daily lives as there were individuals under the occupation and that every person in the war had a unique experience.
Provides readers with an understanding of the devastating nature of World War II and Nazi occupationProvides an in-depth look at Nazi ideology in practiceLooks at issues of collaboration and resistance and how to reconcile them in daily lifeCompares the occupation in Western Europe with the occupation in Eastern EuropeExamines changes in the severity of the occupation as the war dragged onDivides daily life into understandable units such as economic life, religious life, cultural life, and more
