Description This article aims to describe the position and function of women during the Nazi era in Germany and it also explains the relations between women and Nazi policies. Next, this article pinpoints some of the arrangements that were done in order to reach the stated goals of population and racial policies of the Third Reich. Specially, it focuses on how these policies were anchored in the Labor law and Family law. Nazis understood a woman just as a mother, a wife and a conservator of the race, which was supposed to deliver as many children as possible in order to provide new soldiers for future wars and for colonizing the East. The Nazi policies were placing an enormous emphasis on giving social supports and tax advantages to young Germans. The goal of these tendencies was to increase the number of marriages and newborns.
