Year 11

Women in the Nazi State


In Nazi Germany in the 1930s, a secret plan was hatched to create a so-called Aryan Master Race of blonde-haired, blue-eyed children. While millions of genetic undesirables were eliminated, this elite was being bred to populate the new German Reich. This project, the brainchild of SS chief Heinrich Himmler, was called Lebensborn. Sixty-five years after World War II ended, this film reveals what has become of those who were born and stolen to become the new master race.
