Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the events of the 1930s, describing Alexander's experiences during the Nazi Revolution, which erupted before he arrived in Germany to visit his friend, Fritz Berber. The focus then shifts to Berber, who struggled to adopt a rational position compatible with his status in the Nazi regime and the internationalist ideas he learned at Woodbrooke. The chapter moves on to discuss the Group for Anglo-German Understanding, and places Alexander's preoccupations with India and Germany against the background of his work at Woodbrooke.
