World War II History

I stumbled across a series of fascinating and unusual articles at Spiegel Online covering Nazi Germany. Most of the pieces incorporate new and and ongoing research into various historical topics.

Titles include:
  • A recent trial of a 91-year old convicted Nazi war criminal who held up a pharmacy with a toy gun
  • A reassessment of the bombing of Dresden
  • New photos from concentration camps
  • A look at the surviving members of Hitler's "Lebensborn" program to breed an Aryan super-race
  • A study of the effects of rape trauma on the women of Eastern Germany in the last days of the war as the country was being overrun by invading Allied troops
  • New research about looted art treasures and literature
And many more...
