Hitler, the Hohenzollerns and WWII
What did the German people think of the German Royal Family during WWII?
I'm trying to find out what the general attitude among the German people was to the German Royal Family between the wars, and especially during the Second World War?
I know that Kaiser Wilhelm was forced to retire, and went into exile in Holland; however, I have also read that many placed the blame for the loss of the First World War on the "November Criminals" -- politicians, Jews, etc.
So what did the German people think of the Kaiser and his descendants? Were they patriotic, indifferent, or hostile towards them?
All responses are appreciated. Thanks very much for your time! :)
I think you need to read Royals and teh Reich by Jonathon Petropolis
While it is about the support that many german royals gave Nazism, it does give some good insights into how the various german royals were regarded by the general population before and during the war.
Hitler and the Hohenzollern family
I read somewhere that had the allies not gotten rid of the Prussian and Hohenzollern monarchies after world war 1, hitler would never have been able to rise to power. Anyone have any thoughts/insights into this topic?
