Info on female volunteers in the Hiwi/Hilfswilliger

Post by DieJungenHirten » 12 Nov 2021 22:02

Hello, I am looking for any information on women who were 'Hiwi' volunteers. Any other threads, books, photographs, etc would be helpful. I am mostly interested in jobs/work they performed, uniform and clothing, and general recruitment. From my understanding female volunteers were included in medical, household personnel, auxiliary personnel of the armed forces, and interpreters. Medical and household women wore civilian clothing, and women wore an armband on the left sleeve. Correct me if I am wrong, many thanks.
