Futile efforts by the Nazis to shut down a resistance newspaper during WWI...
27 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

The fighting spirit of Belgium during the war years of WWI is documented in this "Passing Parade" tribute to the Belgian resistance. It documents the many instances wherein the Nazis tried to crush the spirit of the Belgian people by shutting down their newspaper, killing the various editors who inevitably came back under new leadership.

This resistance went on for a few years until the war was over, at which time Von Heinrich received the Iron Cross from the Secret Police for wiping out the "Free Belgium" press. At least, that's what he thought--until not long afterwards the paper was running again under a new editor.

It reappeared in 1938 and again the Belgians refused to let it die, sending its message of hope to Norway, Holland, Poland and Belgium.

One of the more interesting in the "Passing Parade" series by John Nesbitt.
