The Nazis’s first enemy was the German organised working class. Within days of the Reichstag fire in February 1933, thousands of Communists had been arrested; ‘protective detention’ of the left, including trade-union leaders, continued for months. Later, the Nazis treated any German who had fought with the International Brigades as a traitor. Millions of Soviet Prisoners of War died as a result of Nazi barbarism; even as Germany faced final defeat, Soviet POWs were picked out to be killed in the camps. This is the less well known story of those the Nazis were determined to destroy.
