Description
A recipient of the Livingston Award for international reporting, foreign correspondent and playwright Anne Nelson here tells the story of a remarkable group of people in Nazi Germany who organized a resistance movement in Berlin at the height of the Third Reich, at the peril of their own lives. Dubbed die Rote Kapelle, the Red Orchestra, by the Gestapo, this circle of husbands, wives, and colleagues infiltrated Nazi organizations, printed resistance flyers, passed information on to the United States and the Soviet Union, and helped smuggle Jews out of Nazi Europe.

"The Red Orchestra was the great classic spy network of the 1930s and World War II. Anne Nelson's Red Orchestra, superbly researched and sharply written, is about the real, very brave people who made up this network—who they were, what they did, and the price they paid for their resistance to tyranny."—Alan Furst

"Nelson documents the wartime journey of Greta Kuckhoff, a young German, and her valiant colleagues who formed a potent resistance to the Hitler regime.... Nelson explains in telling detail about the Nazis' tight grip on power after the 1933 Reichstag fire, eliminating all political foes, including Jews and other non-Aryan types, yet the Kuckhoffs, Mildred and Avrid Harnack, and other members of the Red Orchestra (Rote Kapelle) fought fascist censorship, slid their people into Nazi ministries, helped Jews to flee and provided the Allies with vital information to aid the war effort. Nelson's riveting book speaks proudly of Greta, Mildred and all of the nearly three million Germans who resisted Hitler's iron will, and gives the reader a somber view of hell from the inside."—Publishers Weekly
