Further Details
Abstract "In the German Democratic Republic antifascism was an important propagandistic component to claim the regime's alleged moral and political superiority. Biographies of antifascist resistants were misused and often falsified for political purposes. Antifascist resistants were described as stereotype heroic figures, whose political legacy had to be fulfilled. The essay deals with Bruno Hinz, a prominent member of the "International Brigades", and confronts official propaganda with documents." (author's abstract)
