Excerpt of the preface:








 
Introduction
We are a female group ran by women of WARS providing an opportunity for all women regardless of group to work together. To work with FRAU or indeed become a member or affiliate, we only require you have public liablity insurance paid to a group/association and can prove this on request. If you do, then we are happy to work with you. We portray all aspects of Third Reich womens roles, from mother to DRK to Reichspost. We attend many shows country wide as well as in Europe and Russia. There is no age limit, but we ask that hair colour, piercings etc. are authentic or removed. That make up is kept to a minimum and that you strive to improve your impression/s with time. We are a non-political historical group. We do not support racism, intolerance or other extreme views. We do not seek to glorify the Second World War or extreme political ideology.
