The Black Front

Post by Napoleon40000 » 27 Mar 2022 02:58

Hi all.

I know that after his brother was executed, Otto Strasser went underground , eventually ending up in Canada, and formed an organization called the Black Front. I've vaguely heard about them carrying out assassinations of minor Reich officials and even collaborating with the "despised Jews" in doing so. Can anyone confirm what, if any, effective activities were carried out by them ? Bearing in mind the example of ETA in Spain , that a few thousand rebels can potentially have a disproportionate impact.

Sounds like bollocks to me, the most anti Hitler thing he did was make up stories about Hitler's sex life for the FBI.
