The effect of national socialism on the German educational system, 1933-1945 / by John T. Skelton

Publication | Library Call Number: LA721.81 .S54 1983

This study undertook the task of researching and recreating the events that transpired in Germany during the period 1933-1945, and how they affected the German school system. Data were collected from primary sources such as Adolf Hitler's speeches and his book, Mein Kampf. Additionally, many of the speeches by Hitler's cabinet members and directives issued by the Ministry of Education were reviewed. Secondary sources contained reports published by the United States Department of State and the writings of Robert G. L. Waite, Walter Laqueur, I. L. Kandel, and other known scholars of the Nazi period. Data were gathered in seven principle areas: (1) the educational system in Germany prior to 1933, (2) the elementary education curriculum, (3) the secondary school curriculum, (4) the education outside the school, (5) the school administration, (6) the universities, and (7) the demise of National Socialism. Each of the seven principle areas of investigation provided for conclusions concerning the effects of National Socialism on the German educational system during 1933-1945.
