The Brown Book was the first English publication to detail events which were currently happening in occupied Germany in 1933; book-burning and the destruction of universities, the development of concentration camps for Jewish people, forced labour and the use of the “shot while trying to escape” excuse for murder by police. This was the first time such events had been brought into the public consciousness, and the book was supported by documentation with names and dates – substantial evidence of the brutality which was taking place. (Please note the confronting and graphic nature of the content of Chapters 7, 9 and 10 before listening.)
Lord Marley described the book as “a contribution to the fight against Hitler Fascism. This fight is not directed against Germany; it is a fight on behalf of the real Germany.” (Summary by Beth Thomas and the Introduction)
