Anti-fascist Women in Hannover from 1933 to 1945
‘Oral History’ is an important method to get to know, what you don’t find in documents, newspapers or other historic sources. This is true above all for those people, who have not reached official honour: the so called ‘ordinary people’. And it even more applies to women. They are usually forgotten – even in alternative historiography. Therefore interviews and the analysis of interviews were used, to give a voice to those, who otherwise were usually not heard in the history of antifascist resistance during the NS-time: social-democratic, socialist and communist women, who did important work, but were not seen or heard much. With the theoretical und practical concept of gender-based division of labour the significance of women could be shown. Without them resistance in the NS-time would not have been possible. In the radio-flora-show “Magazin International” from May 25th of 2015 was broadcasted the reading of parts of Brunhild Müller-Reiß’s investigation about antifascist women in Hannover. The programme ends with the italian antifascist song “Bella Ciao”.
