Abstract

We usually see women as those who are above all victims and sufferers of wars: tolerating, waiting, mourning. This book has taken on this cliché and goes in search of the supposedly passive woman. What concrete part did women play in political events, what positions did they take on war, on peace? When did they act and step out of the role of observer? It turned out that the contribution of women to war and peace is more diverse than it could be exhausted in the search for noble pacifists, heroic fighters against war, brave "women of ruins" or even clearly identifiable war supporters.

Translated TitleBetween the Fronts: Munich Women in War and Peace, 1900-1950
