German people between 1939 and 1945? Did the Nazis retain the loyalty of the German people between 1939 and 1945? public morale was always a concern to the Nazi regime and elaborate attempts were made to canvass public opinion. The Security Service (SD) of the SS sent agents all over Germany to listen as objectively as possible to what ordinary Germans were saying about the war what they heard was universally critical. Support had become more passive than active Fischer believes that the disastrous defeat at Stalingrad was the defining moment for

most Germans that the war was lost hence mobilization from 1943 onwards would be difficult. The regime was concerned about reaction to the brutal nature of war in the east there were Social Democrats, religious opponents, conservatives, Communists and some military leaders who had always resisted Hitlers tyranny and would make matters more difficult between 1943 and 1945 defeat became inevitable and the population had no illusions. A summary of popular opinion in March 1945 reported that nobody believed anymore that Germany could win, all faith was lost in the leadership and party and propaganda could no longer mask what had happened despite a massive network of police surveillance, there were many Germans who voiced dissent, some openly, some in a more muted fashion. Peukert has shown that there was a mood which ran counter to the officially sponsored picture of delirious

Germans rallying round the Fhrer Plenary Promenade Did the Nazis retain the loyalty of the Germans. HW Answer the Q.
