New Publication: "Herrschaft durch Schulung"
Helen's article 'Herrschaft durch Schulung: The Nationalpolitische Erziehungsanstalten im Osten and the Third Reich's Germanising mission' has recently been published in an edited volume entitled Nationalsozialismus und Regionalbewusstsein im östlichen Europa. Ideologie, Machtausbau, Beharrung , edited by Burkhard Olschowsky and Ingo Loose.
The essays contained in the volume examine the relationship of National Socialist territorial and population policy to regional identities in Eastern Europe. A focus is placed on the role of “Auslandsdeutschen” (ethnic Germans in foreign countries), including their relationships to their nations of residence and to the Third Reich.
