German Resistance: “Driven by the Restlessness of their Conscience”

German Resistance: “Driven by the Restlessness of their Conscience”

Questions on the Weiss Rose resistance

A Ger­man par­lia­men­tary jour­nal quotes Churchill on the Ger­man resis­tance to Hitler: “These men and women fought with­out help from with­in or with­out, dri­ven only by the rest­less­ness of their con­science.  As long as they lived they were invis­i­ble and unrec­og­niz­able to us.

“The Packard”: Ne Plus Ultra of Automotive House Organs (2)

Albrecht Forster and the Danzig Nazis

A read­er refers to a Spar­ta­cus Edu­ca­tion­al arti­cle, “Was Win­ston Churchill a Sup­port­er or an Oppo­nent of Fas­cism?” Cit­ing Churchill’s words to the Albrecht Forster, it argues that WSC sup­port­ed appease­ment and approved of Fascism.…
