Germany was a civilian run Dictatorship. Civil liberties for the masses were non existent.

The press and radio were censored and otherwise controlled. Free speech was not allowed. Of course, Jews (and Jehova's witnesses) were not allowed to practice their religion, although otherwise, religious freedom was allowed. Freedom from random searches, freedom of assembly, and other American civil liberties were also denied.

This said, compared to the Soviet Union, Germany was a model of civil liberties. At least the rule of law applied to most citizens in Germany. There were honest trials for criminal matters. Private property was in the vast majority of cases, protected.

In the USSR even these few rights were stripped from society. All property right down to the smallest garden plot was state owned. Every cow, every auto, every apartment - all state owned. Religion was suppressed with churches bulldozed, priests arrested and services broken up. Persons were arrested and sent to work camps for no reason other than to terrorize those left behind. The brutality of the Soviet military is well known and does not need repeating here.
