These anti-fascist newsletters include reports on life under fascist regimes

This collection contains two newsletters (‘Germany Under the Swastika’ and ‘Fascism’) published by the Internationale Transportarbeiter-Föderation (ITF) between 1933 and 1945. Originally intended to document the deeds and misdeeds of the Nazi regime in Germany, their scope expanded during the Second World War to include reports about occupied Europe. Both publications focus on the role played by organised labour and the working class in fascist dictatorships. Widely regarded as sober, accurate, and reliable, they provide a unique insight into life under fascism in the 20th century.

Insights

  • These newsletters contain details of what was happening on the ground as fascism swept Germany. They also cover what happened as the Third Reich took over states across Europe.
  • Germany under the Swastika describes how Hitler's government silenced those who disagreed with them. From the trade unions, to co-operatives, and the League of Nations; the act of co-operation became a threat.
  • One of these newsletters mentions concentration camps being built for Jews in Italy during the spring of 1938.
  • Some Germans were imprisoned for giving gifts to Polish prisoners of war which included civilian clothes and cigarettes.
