There was some concern among members of the prosecuting legal team assembled at Nuremberg as to whether the Nazi defendants were even capable of standing trial for their heinous crimes.

One of the kindest things you could possibly say about the Nazis is that they were "sexists" - and if you wanted to back your thesis up with anecdotes, facts and figures, you would read the attached article from 1933:
"To say that woman's place is in the home is understatement, so far as Adolf Hitler is concerned. Certainly she's not to be allowed in the library. Intellectual life, as well as all business and legal affairs, is a purely masculine enterprise in the Third Reich. And the women, most of them, in hysterical devotion to their leader, obey.

"Goebbels is the creator of the Hitler legend. He is the white-washer of the Nazi reputation. In the 1920s the party had an unsavory name because its ranks included a clique of of homosexuals. As early as 1922 a Nazi meeting at Munich voted that no woman should ever hold political office. Goebbels twisted the party's abnormal dislike of women into something 'respectable' - the doctrine that a woman's place was in the kitchen and the maternity ward."
This snippet that appeared in CLICK MAGAZINE during the early months of 1944 supports the argument posed by journalist Gerard Williams and the investigators on the program "Hunting Hitler" . It stated that a Nazi insider had defected to London where he informed British intelligence of a Nazi plan to launch a third world war from the confines of, it was assumed, another country.
