Abstract: »As part 3, "Assaults on Motherhood," shows, forced sterilization and forced abortion also constituted sexual abuse of women. In "Reproduction under the Swastika: The Other Side of the Glorification of Motherhood," Helga Amesberger documents how Nazi control of persecuted women's sexuality impacted pregnancy and motherhood.« (Source: Sonja M.
