A gripping narrative account of one familya€™s struggle against fascism in Germany. Spanning twenty-five turbulent years, from 1914 to 1939, and relates the true story of the authora€™s father and two brothers, this is an intriguing insight into a momentous but little known period of Germanya€™s history. At a time when Hitler and the Nazi Party were becoming more powerful in Germany, three young brothers a€“ Rudolf, Ernst and Werner Stender a€“ join an anti-fascist resistance movement in Hamburg. Their aim is to warn the German people of the risk of a world war to come and the harsh reality of life under a Nazi regime. The brothers are not alone in their fight against the Nazi Party a€“ they have comrades who fight alongside them, many of whom never will see the freedom and social justice they yearn for. The siblings are catapulted into different experiences a€“ arrested by the Gestapo, tortured, imprisoned in FuhlsbA¼ttel Concentration Camp and sent for trial for a€˜High Treason against the German Reicha€™. Two of the brothers escape from Germany, one seeing life in the Soviet Union at the start of Stalina€™s a€˜purgea€™ and then joining the International Brigade during the Spanish Civil War and the other helping to set up the resistance in Czechoslovakia. This is an insightful and thought-provoking retelling of true events seen through the eyes of the Stender family and examines the impact the major political events had on the world.Chapter 3 3 4 In italics, letter translated from father See photo at the end of this chapter 5 Ernst Gustav Stender (Opaa#39;s brother born 8th ... 10 DMV a€“ Deutscher Metallarbeiter-Verband 11 ADGB a€“ Allgemeiner Deutscher Gewerkschaftsbund ( Confederation of German Trade ... that depends upon suddenness and speed Chapter 6 17 Werner has treasured this gift all his life and it still is kept in his bedroom.
