Spaniards in the Holocaust by David Wingeate Pike

Book Description

This important work focuses on the experience of the large Spanish contingent within the Mauthausen concentration camp, one of the least known but most terrible camps in Nazi Germany. Refugees from the repercussions of the Civil War, 7,000 Spanish Republicans were arrested in France by the invading Nazis in the collapse of 1940. A microcosm of the experience of national prisoner communities, their story possesses a unique historical value. No other national group succeeded in placing its members in all the key clerical positions in the SS administration, and no other group managed to hide and save all its basic records. Vilified by Franco and condemned by Hitler, their story makes an outstanding contribution to the literature of the holocaust.

Crimes Against Women by David Wingeate Pike Crimes Against Women, Paperback (November 2011)

So long as women are considered inferior human beings, crimes against women will not be considered as crimes against humanity. When women are tortured, it is dismissed as a custom, a part of the tradition. This book explores the cultural aspects of injustices against women and the general exploitation by a male-oriented society.

Franco and the Axis Stigma by David Wingeate Pike Franco and the Axis Stigma, Hardback (June 2008)

Examines Franco's relations with Hitler and Mussolini during the Second World War, this book makes use of two major sources: the German Admiralty's archives, stunning in their evidence of Franco's support; and the Spanish press, operating under a totalitarian regime and yearning for an Axis victory to the bitter end.

In the Service of Stalin by David Wingeate Pike In the Service of Stalin, Hardback (September 1993)

The story of the thousands of communists exiled from Spain after Franco's victory in the Spanish civil war. Disciplined and dedicated to Stalin's cause, they threw themselves into the struggle against fascism in Europe in the Second World War.
