On 23rd December 1937 the Deutsche Rote Kreuz, DRK, lost all the charitable means and youth organisations and was totally reorganised under the hierarchical way of the regime.
In World War II more than 600 000 DRK members / nurses did their duty on all fronts.
The nurses work environment mainly being to look after the wounded, take care of POW´s, duty in air raid shelters, to assist settlers from the East and later refugees - generally caring for civilians and soldiers.
A considerably amount of DRK nurses had been awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class for their dediction. A list of decorated women can be found under recommended internet sources.
