Abstract

How could German society take a stable democratic development after national socialism? The book is devoted to the first steps in this democracy. This book is about the first women's organizations in the US-occupied zone and how they raised the demand for a democratic post-war Germany.
Opposite them stood a military authority, which understood itself as a civilization instrument. The American response to the German malaise of the German militaristic national character, marked by national socialism, was reeducation, a concept developed by leading social scientists, administrative experts, and educators in the United States.
Together, the German women and their partners in the US military authorities had the responsibility for the re-establishment of a German nation under the sign of a civic female women worker on the German side.
