Description

Political resistance to National Socialism which aimed to topple the Nazi regime, was defined by the judiciary system of the Third Reich as high treason. Documents on prosecution and verdicts in cases brought before the various central courts - Reichsgericht (1933 to 1934), Volksgerichtshof (1934 to 1945) and Reichskriegsgericht (1936 to 1944) - are therefore an important source of information on the history of the German resistance. They mirror the social and political spectrum of the movement in its entire breadth and variety. The files provide detailed reports on resistance activities, shed light on the structure of opposition groups and contain, in full or in generous excerpts, resistance writings, which are often impossible to obtain elsewhere. The microfiche edition 'Widerstand als, Hochverrat" 1933-1945' contains the prosecution documents and verdicts from some 2,500 trials against approximately 7,500 German citizens of the "Old Reich" and Austria. It thus represents the most comprehensive collection of documents on the political resistance to the Nazi dictatorship. The accompanying index volume makes it possible to use the edition systematically and to find files easily.show more
