About this book

Greta Kuckhoff belonged to the anti-Nazi group, 'The Red Orchestra'. She survived the War and spent the next thirty years working to commemorate their resistance. Using previously unpublished sources, this book traces the interventions of this key figure and raises provocative questions about remembering antifascism in contemporary Germany.

Her previous book Women Without a Past?: German Autobiographical Writings and Fascism was published in 2007.

Reviews

'Of the various studies on the debate surrounding anti-Fascism and resistance in the GDR, Joanne Sayner's research into the life writings of Greta Kuckhoff provides a wealth of new material relating to this less well-known figure of Nazi resistance and the GDR public sphere. Most importantly, her book provides insights from the life of a woman in high positions fighting for an appropriate public remembrance of the anti-Fascist resisters she alone outlived.' - Modern Language Review
