Wilhelm von Prussia liked to present himself in uniform with a swastika armband. It is undisputed that he stood up for Hitler. But he does not want to have played a significant role on the way to the "seizure of power" by the National Socialists.
Jürgen Luh deals with the behavior of the ex-crown prince in precise individual studies and uses reliable examples to show how Wilhelm not only advocated cooperation between the old elites and National Socialism, but also for Hitler's "Führerstaat".
Jürgen Luh is a historian at the SPSG and director at the Research Center Sanssouci for Knowledge and Society in Potsdam.
