Description

It's well known that Hitler found an alliance - albeit a rocky one - with Benito Mussolini. But what's often less widely-understood is the prevalence of overtly National Socialistic or Nazi-adjacent movements in other European countries during the 1930s and 40s. In this Conversation, we'll discuss the Austrian Nazi Party under Theodor Habicht; the Swiss Nazi leader Wilhelm Gustloff (assassinated by a Croatian Jew named David Frankfurter in 1936); the French Popular Party under Jacques Doriot; Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists; the National Socialist Movement in the Netherlands under Anton Mussert; and more, including of course Vidkun Quisling's National Union in Norway. 

Led by an expert on the history of the Third Reich, Dr. Finn Ballard, this Conversation will illuminate the tales of Fascist and National Socialist movements beyond Germany and Italy. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of how Nazism was a much more widespread phenomenon that it is generally believed to have been.
