Selling Sex in the Reich

This chapter moves from the prostitute woman to the milieu of which she was a part. It asks whether prostitutes represented, as many historians have argued, a marginalized and relatively invisible section of German society. It investigates with whom prostitutes interacted, and the nature of the economic and personal relationships in which they participated. Where did prostitutes live and work? Whom did they solicit and why? Did they do business with any other notable characters and, if so, whom? All of these questions seek a better understanding of where prostitutes fitted within German society and what that reveals about the workings of urban society more generally.
