This new book challenges a popular 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 chronicles the German anti-Nazi Resistance, particularly from the German working class movement. She includes the White Rose group and the Edelweiss Pirates.
In the second part of the book Steve chronicles how German refugees took part in fighting the Nazis in France in the Resistance, “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 in organisations including 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. And “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.”
