As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer-a pastor and author.
Those Germans, such as Count Claus von Stauffenberg, who fought the Third Reich from within have often been mythologized as heroes in the fight against tyranny but the truth is far more complex. "Germans Against Hitler "traces the history of the German resistance, from the ascent of the Nazi party to the July 1944 attempted assassination of Hitler. Informed by more than four decades of research and written by the premier historian of the German Resistance, this book offers the most authoritative history of the tens of thousands of Germans who tried to resist Nazism.
Kindertransport (Children's Transport) was the informal name of a series of rescue efforts which brought thousands of refugee Jewish children to Great Britain from Nazi Germany between 1938 and 1940. (The Holocaust Encyclopedia)
