This book examines the role of German women in borderlands activism in Germany's eastern regions before 1939 and their involvement in Nazi measures to Germanize occupied Poland during the Second World War. Drawing on previously untapped material from Polish and German archives, as well as memoirs and oral testimony from German women who were sent to wartime Poland, Elizabeth Harvey analyses the function of female activism within Nazi imperialism and the extent to which women embraced policies intended to segregate Germans from non-Germans and to persecute Poles and Jews.
