Solidarity and Treason

Lisa Fittko's gripping memoir of the antifascist resistance in Germany opens with Hitler's ascension to power in January 1933. Leftist and democratic newspapers cease to exist, meetings and rallies are banned, yet Fittko and her colleagues continue to publish and distribute antifascist literature. Fittko herself, too well known by the authorities, is finally forced to flee to Czechoslovakia. There she meets Hans Fittko, and together they organize an escape route for opponents of the Nazi government over the Czech border and continue the publication and distribution of political fliers and brochures. When Hans is expelled from Czechoslovakia, she follows him to Switzerland; later they are forced to continue their flight through Europe. Undesirable aliens, at the mercy of unsympathetic authorities for food, shelter, and work, they continue their selfless efforts against fascism.

About the Author

Lisa Fittko (born Elizabeth Eckstein, Hungarian: Eckstein (Ekstein) Erzsebet; Uzhgorod 1909 - Chicago 2005) was a young woman who lived through the Nazi occupation of Europe. Lisa Fittko's life was formed in her work in the underground resistance of Nazi-occupied Europe. She came to international recognition over forty years later through her two widely-translated memoirs, in which she describes her actions (considered inspirational by many who read about them) in the voice of a fearless young woman, a bohemian, an activist. It is, however, a voice altogether lacking in self-glorification or self-pitying victimization. Her bravery in leading refugees, including many famous intellectuals and members of the anti-Hitler resistance from Nazi-occupied France across the Pyrenees into Spain, brought her international fame.
