The Info List - Black Front





The Combat League of Revolutionary National Socialists (German: Kampfgemeinschaft Revolutionärer Nationalsozialisten, KGRNS), more commonly known as the Black
Black
Front (German: Schwarze Front), was a political group formed by Otto Strasser
Otto Strasser
after his expulsion from the Nazi Party
Nazi Party
(NSDAP) in 1930.[1] Strasser believed the original anti-capitalist nature of the NSDAP had been betrayed by Adolf Hitler. The Black
Black
Front was composed of former radical members of the NSDAP, who intended to cause a split in the main party. Strasser's organisation published a newspaper, The German Revolution,[1] and adopted the crossed hammer and sword symbol which is still used by several Strasserite groupings today. The organisation was unable to oppose the NSDAP effectively, and Hitler’s rise to power proved to be the final straw. Strasser spent the years of the Third Reich
Third Reich
in exile, first in Czechoslovakia and later in Canada. The social fascist wing of the NSDAP itself was eradicated in 1934 during the Night of the Long Knives, in which Gregor Strasser, Otto's elder brother, was killed. See also[edit]
