This book is a study of the welfare system in the Weimar Republic. Adopting a “history of everyday life” perspective, the book examines not only high-level policy and debate, but also ordinary Germans' daily experiences and encounters with the welfare state, upon which millions depended for their livelihood. The book ultimately shows why the collapse of the welfare system, one of the pillars of the Weimar social republic, led so quickly to the Nazi racial state in the years after 1933.

Keywords: welfare system; Weimar Republic; policy; debate; collapse; social republic; Nazi; 1933
