Women in WWII Germany

Query from Alexi Companioni DOLL4077@aol.com 31 august 1999

..I am a graduate student interested in writing a research on one of these topics:

German women and suffrage, German women and Nationalism;or the treatment of homosexuals during Nazi Germany. If anyone has any suggestions on recent books or articles (written in English or German, preferably in English), I would greatly appreciate them.
