    The first Nazis, 1919-1922
    (2010) Mook, Stephen A.
    This dissertation addresses two contentions about the Nazi Party membership: firstly that members who joined after Hitler took over on 29 July 1921 were different than the original members, and secondly that the Nazi Party membership was made up of a certain type of person or social class. Additionally, through analysis of enrollment patterns and of the reasons stated by 194 early members for joining the Nazi Party, this dissertation seeks to determine why one might join the early Nazi Party. Using Party membership registers, I employed two different methods to help understand who belonged to the Nazi Party in its earliest days. The first of these is social composition. This method analyzes the entire group to get a sense of the characteristics of members of the early NS(DAP) and the SA. The second method is prosopography. This statistical method breaks down the data from the membership lists into clusters to ascertain the prototypical members. In conjunction, both the methodologies of social composition and the clustering of members bear out the contention that the types of early Party members before Hitler took over were different from the types who joined afterwards. Both methods also refute the theory that the Nazi Party enlisted only a certain type of person or appealed only to members of a specific social class. In fact, the Nazi Party really was, as it claimed, a Volkspartei, a people’s party that appealed to a broad range of Germans. To establish why people joined the early Nazi Party, I first analyzed enrollment patterns. No internal or outside factors seem to explain the spikes in enrollment. Also,answers to the question “What caused you the enter the [Nazi] Party?” discovered in the personnel files of early members were categorized along common themes. The multitude of reasons given for having joined the Nazi Party, despite the pointedness of Nazi propaganda at the time, is further evidence that membership was not due to any single, overriding factor.

    The Nazi "New man"
    (2002) Ettelson, Todd Richard
    This dissertation argues that constructions of masculinity and male sexuality played a central role in shaping the conduct of men in the SA and SS, as well as the identities of those institutions more broadly. I pursue two main lines of inquiry throughout. First, I explore the ways in which these constructions shifted at different points in Nazism's development and within the diverse institutional cultures. My aim here is to map the importance of masculinity and male sexuality on to the history of the Nazi state's consolidation and evolution of institutional identities. Second, I analyze the complex types of power relationship that constructions of masculinity and male sexuality nourished and sustained. I contend that these were predominantly regulative and disciplinary in nature, geared towards producing and shaping individual behaviors that were profoundly linked to the Nazi state's formation and goals. On the one hand, I am concerned with a diversity in the meanings attached to gender and sexuality in the Third Reich, as well as the contradictions and conflicts between them. On the other, I examine how this field of meanings as a whole bolstered a more generalized form of disciplinary power that possessed a definite consistency and uniformity. I explore how visions of masculinity and male sexuality functioned within and shifted across several temporal contexts that were critical in the development of National Socialism. The project begins by considering how the mediation of SA men as aggressive but vulnerable helped mobilize them as violent during the late Weimar period. It then examines how the mediation of the SA leadership as homosexual figured into the consolidation of the Nazi state during the SA purge of June 1934. Next, I analyze shifting visions of masculinity in the SS and SA between 1934 and 1939, tracing out their connections to Nazi racism and the state repressive apparatus. The final chapters also focus on the years between 1934 and 1939, examining the regulation of marriage within the SS, persecution of male homosexuals in Nazi institutions, and the state's attempts to punish “ordinary” Germans who gossiped about Hitler's sexuality.

    Strafverfolgungspraxis im Schein-Rechtsstaat des „Dritten Reiches“
    (2023) Haase, Lena
    Die Geheime Staatspolizei ist längst zum Sinnbild der Strafverfolgung in der NS-Zeit geworden. Sie gilt – gemeinsam mit den Sondergerichten und dem Volksgerichtshof – als Inbegriff nationalsozialistischer Rechtsbeugung im Kontext von Terror und Willkür. Nur selten werden hingegen auch die ordentlichen Gerichte auf regionaler Ebene sowie die übrigen Polizeibehörden berücksichtigt. Die Studie beleuchtet an einem regionalen Beispiel, wie sich in der alltäglichen Arbeitspraxis die Zusammenarbeit von Polizei, Gerichten und Staatsanwaltschaft gestaltete. Dabei rückt sie zentrale Tätigkeitsfelder der Regionalbehörden in den Fokus, um die Entwicklung der nationalsozialistischen Strafverfolgungspraxis nachzuzeichnen und mit einem akteurszentrierten Ansatz die Bedeutung von Juristen für das NS-Regime herauszuarbeiten.
