Chapter Summary

Hilda Monte’s (1914–45) posthumous novel Where Freedom Perished (1947) is the fictionalisation of her personal experience as a resistance fighter inside and outside the Third Reich, first for the ISK, and later for the OSE and the OSS. The analysis shows – by drawing on new material of the hitherto neglected author – how she adopted a special lite-rary genre (‘faction’) and in ten chapters convincingly presented the various strata of resistance activities in Nazi Germany prior to World War II.
