This new book challenges a common myth : that there was no resistance in Germany to the Nazis. We are delighted to be joined by the authors Merilyn and Steve.
In the first part of the book Merilyn describes the German anti-Nazi resistance particular from the German working class movement.
In the second part of the book Steve chronicles how German refugees took part in fighting the Nazis in France. He states “From spreading anti-Nazi propaganda in the German Army and attempting to organise mutiny and desertion, through to extensive involvement in urban terrorism and the rural guerrilla struggle.”
Merilyn and Steve are lifelong activists in opposing fascism through organisations such as the Anti Nazi League, trade unions and community campaigns. They want to encourage all of us to be inspired by the women and men in this book. “The most important lesson we can learn from the history of their struggles is that resistance is always possible, even under the most grim of circumstances.”
