i've been wondering, were the people who supported Hitler but did not know of the atrocities committed culpable? until what year would actively supporting the Nazi cause have made you a person who wanted what is best for the people but any time pass this date morally bankrupt? i'm sure it's out there, but what was a first person perspective of life under Hitler in terms of liberty and around what point did he arouse suspicion in the people who eventually fled? what did it feel like to lose your freedoms, was it slow and therefore unnoticeable? or was it likely the compromise people were willing to accept for a stronger unified country recovering from the First World War?

My girlfriend's grandmother was a full on, actual, active working member of the Nazi government. Until her recent death, she held Hitler in high regard as a helper of the German people and came just short of outright denying the holocaust. Not sure whether that helps your inquiry but thought it was noteworthy.
