World War Two - German Home Front

Read the post-war articles that we have about life in occupied-Germany.


Life in W.W. II Germany (Collier's, 1943)

This COLLIER'S article illustrates well the gloom that hung over the German home front of 1943:


"Nobody escapes war service in Germany. Children serve in air-raid squads; women work very hard...The black market flourishes everywhere. More fats are required, as are fruits and vegetables, for the people's strength is declining. A report I have seen of Health Minister Conti shows that the mortality rate for some diseases rose 49 percent in 1941 - 1942."

''They Saw Hamburg Die'' (Collier's Magazine, 1943)

A 1943 article that was cabled from Stockholm, Sweden relaying assorted eyewitness accounts of the Allied bombing campaign over the German city of Hamburg in 1943:

From Amazon:

"The people of Germany have now learned, through the terror-filled hours of sleepless nights and days, that air mastery , the annihilating blitz weapon of the Nazis in 1939 and 1940, has been taken over by by the Allies...The most terrible of these punches has been the flood of nitroglycerin and phosphorus that in five days and nights destroyed Hamburg."

The witnesses were all escaped Scandinavian laborers who had been working in that city.

It was an Englishman nick-named "Bomber Harris" who planned and organized the nightly raids over Nazi Germany: click here to read about him.

How Much Can the Germans Take? (Collier's Magazine, 1941)

The attached 1941 COLLIER'S MAGAZINE article reported on how the people of Berlin were faring after one solid year of R.A.F. bombing. By war's end it was estimated that as many as 580,000 Germans had been killed as a result of the Allied bombing campaign (many of them were children and far more women than men). This article examines what Berlin life was like when the bombs fell.

Letters from the German Home Front (Coronet Magazine, 1943)

The misery that lingered over the W.W. II German home front is well documented and many of the issues concerning melancholy, hunger and thirst can be read in the attached assortment of letters that were pulled from the bloodied uniforms of the thousands of dead Nazi soldiers that surrounded the city of Stalingrad in 1943. These personal correspondences by German parents, wives and sweethearts present a thorough look at the dreariness that lingered over the German home front.

 

What Were the Germans Thinking? (Click Magazine, 1943)

"We cannot conduct a Gallup poll in Germany, but we can find out by other opinion polls and from other inquiring reporters what the average German is thinking. Our reporters are the Nazis themselves. The poll is tallied daily at short-wave listening stations, among them that of the Columbia Broadcasting System. The C.B.S. corps of engineers monitors and records and interprets the voices of the enemy."

"The Nazi propaganda here analyzed is a record of Nazi failure to keep the German people from thinking 'non-German' thoughts and failure to prevent the record from being known."

This article is illustrated with fourteen W.W. II photographs.
