Stop neo-fascism, poverty in Europe, former anti-Hitler fighters say

‘Creative Resistance’ in the Nazi Camps

4 May 2010

Holocaust research has traditionally portrayed Jews as passive victims but Stanford scholars John and Mary Felstiner study how some took up the pen, the paintbrush or the piano to send a message to future generations.

From the international federation of resistance fighters (FIR):

Vote for anti-fascists in the European Parliament!

8 February 2014

Call of FIR: Appeal for the European election campaign

In May 2014, the European Parliament elections will take place. For veterans of the anti-fascist struggle and anti-fascists of today’s generations, these elections are important for two main reasons:

The current policy and development of the European Union does not correspond to the interests of large groups of people in the European countries. Numerous decisions lead to massive social exclusion, have disastrous consequences for the weakest of the respective countries. Therefore in the European Parliament, the votes must be strengthened, committed to a democratic, peace-oriented, solidarity and socially just development of Europe.

Secondly in various European countries racist and extreme right-wing forces are growing before these elections, which must be countered actively and engaged in the election campaign and in Parliament.

FIR therefore calls on you in the European election campaigns to choose in all countries such men and women who work for a Europe

that confronts any form of racial discrimination or xenophobia,

that is an advocate for refugees and guarantees humane treatment,

that campaigns against all forms of Holocaust denial, historical revisionism and rehabilitation of SS criminals,

that ensures a social policy, which guarantees work, education, food and adequate housing for all humans,

that stands for a policy of peace, based not on hegemony, but on non-military solutions to conflicts,

that represents a community for the interest of the people and not the rule of banks and business associations,

that stands for comparable living conditions in all countries and against forced labor migration,

that guarantees equality between peoples and nations, and no hegemonic policy.

Such an Europe is possible when the people stand up actively and loudly for their interests.

The international federation of resistance fighters (FIR)-association of anti-fascists is the umbrella organisation of federations of former resistance fighters, partisans, members of the anti-Hitler coalition, people persecuted by the Nazi regime and anti-fascists of today’s generations from over twenty countries of Europe and Israel.

The right-wing party Fidesz of Prime Minister Victor Orban won the Hungarian parliamentary elections on Sunday. The real winner, however, is the neo-fascist party Jobbik. It won more than 20 percent of the vote, four points more than in 2010. This is the best result for an extreme-right party in national parliamentary elections in Europe: here.

On this day in 1937, U.S. apologized for insulting Hitler: N.Y. Mayor La Guardia called him a ‘brown-shirted fanatic’: here.
