Nazi views on the role of the family

Hitler promoted the importance of a stable, traditional family. Men were to be in charge and protect their family. Women were to serve and nurture their family.

Hitler said this was “the natural order”.

Hitler wanted to use families to increase the size of the population and to ensure it was pure Aryan.

Nazi views on the role of women

In public, Hitler said women were “equal but different from men”, but he actually thought women were inferior.

He believed women’s lives should revolve around the three 'Ks': Kinder, Küche, Kirche (Children, Kitchen, Church).

The Nazis expected women to stay at home, look after the family and produce children in order to secure the future of the Aryan race.
