One of their biggest problems was sharing information. Generally talk of any political subject was stamped out even before the war. Once the war started, so much as telling a joke the wrong way could get you imprisoned.The German people made a literal pact with the devil through their twisted mentally-ill pact with the devil. Many Germans of normal intelligence probably suspected that “something was rotten in Denmark” and not all was well but went along with it in the hope that they would “win” before the German nation was called to account. They were wrong and Germany was destroyed in the process. Sic transit tyranus
The gestapo and co had such a tight grip on things, there was virtually no hope of any opposition either getting properly organized or getting their message the wider population. Then you have to consider the scale of what was happening. Even when the first reports of the industrialized killing was going on even Jewish resistance groups in Poland would not believe the stories. So how do you expect a patriotic, politically silenced German to believe them even if they had heard.
