Sewing for Hitler? The clothing industry during the ‘Third Reich’

Köster, Roman ; Schnaus, Julia


The article deals with the history of the clothing industry during the 'Third Reich'. It discusses the development of the industry and the room for manoeuvre by the example of three companies, Seidensticker, Hugo Boss, and Bierbaum-Proenen. The article makes the point that the Nazi's economic policy brought about severe restraints for the clothing industry, which seems to be typical for consumer goods industries as a whole during the 'Third Reich'.
