1. How would you have reacted to Hitler’s ideas if you were: A Jewish woman

Question:

How would you have reacted to Hitler’s ideas if you were:

  • A Jewish woman
  • A non-Jewish German woman

Answer:

  • A Jewish Woman: Hitler’s ideology is condemnable. His ideas were against the Jews and women. He considered Jews and others as ‘undesirable’. If I were a Jewish woman, I would have stood against Hitler’s ideology. I would have looked for a safer nation as I felt insecure in Germany.
  • A Non- Jewish German Women: According to Nazi ideology, women only had to be good mothers to give birth to German Children. Women were not freed to do anything else. If I were a German woman, I would have tried to give support to Jews and helped them because they are equal to Germans, they are not ‘undesirable’.
