Nazi Bride Schools

The fascinating part is how the reporting on them is bent to fit modern narratives.  Here are the top Bing hits for the discussion of Reichbrauteschule. Note how many reference the German phrase kinder, kuche, kirche - children, kitchen, and church - even though a key part of the story is how the young women were directed out of the church into neopagan ceremonies for marriage. Current meager management opportunities for German women are also considered a natural outflow of this culture.

Still, it's an interesting story, now fresh because of recently discovered documents.  And there are pictures.

I have a recollection of hearing about this, or something like it, in a paperback erotic novel 50 years ago.
