The Edelweiss Pirates and Youth Resistance

October 22 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

In Cologne and the surrounding Rhine Valley of Germany, a group of working-class kids got together to fight the Nazis during the Third Reich. They called themselves the Edelweiss Pirates, and they moved from passive resistance to distributing anti-Nazi flyers, beating up Hitler Youth, painting graffiti on Nazi buildings, and more.

Learn more about these little known resistance fighters and the upcoming book “Flowers in the Gutter: The True Story of the Edelweiss Pirates, the Teenage Rebels who Fought the Nazis” by Kristina Gaddy.

In this free event, Kristina Gaddy will give a presentation about her book, including music and pictures.
