Abstract

This paper will explore the role of social work in Germany pre- and during the Nazi regime. The paper will examine the role and implications of social work in the implementation of Nazi social policy in German society and the ramifications. Moreover, the paper will examine whether social workers had a voice in the implementation of social policy of the National Socialist Worker's Party (Nazi Party). This paper is written from the perspective of a Western Gentile reviewing the implications for social work as a profession involved in the Nazi social policies of the day and the lessons learnt. This paper is not a criticism of contemporary European social work.
