Artists Against Hitler : Persecution, Exile, Resistance

description

Publication on the role of artists and writers in the German resistance. Edited, and with an introduction, by Gerhard Schoenberner. Essays by Sigrid Schneider, Ralf Schnell, Marianne Exner, Reinhard Hippen, and Ulrich Krempel. Texts in English. Includes contributor biographies. "Many books have been written about German resistance in the last few decades. The 40th anniversary of 20 July 1944 may be the occasion for dealing with a chapter that is little known abroad: the role of the writers and artists in that struggle. It is to their honour that from the start they and the nazi dictatorship regarded each other as irreconcilable enemies and declared war on each other." -- from the introduction by Gerhard Schoenberner.
