Historiography has long focused on the National Socialist regime’s structures and methods of rule. More recent research, by contrast, concentrates on the role of society, highlighting consent and cooperation, perpetrating and participating, relations between the public and private spheres, and processes of individualization and collectivization. These recent studies are inspired by such approaches as the cultural history of the political and the history of emotions, and incorporate sources such as photographs and diaries.
