Family Punishment in Nazi Germany : Sippenhaft, Terror and Myth Hardback

Their parents, siblings and relatives also risked reprisals.
This concept - known as Sippenhaft - was based in ideas of blood and purity.
This definitive study surveys the threats, fears and infliction of this part of the Nazi system of terror.
