A Warning from History
Explore the challenges facing nations and societies today, through the lens of history and the remarkable book Darkness over Germany, republished in English for the first time since 1945.
Inspired by her Christian faith, the book's pioneering author, Amy Buller, explored the hopes and fears of people engulfed in the rise of fascism in Germany during the 1930s. She sought to understand how ordinary people were so vulnerable to an ideology with divisive and ultimately catastrophic consequences.
Darkness over Germany: A Warning from History delivers a timely reminder of how a message of hate once fuelled a nation to unite. With themes of populism, nationalism and extremism and the lessons we can learn from the events of the 1930s in Germany, to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.
