RED ORCHESTRA The Story of the Berlin Underground and the Circle of Friends Who Resisted Hitler

by | Read by Anne Nelson

History • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Listeners can expect a large collection of true anecdotes told by Germans and foreigners living through the scourge of National Socialism under Adolf Hitler. So great was the revulsion to Hitler's government that an underground resistance—called the Red Orchestra by the Gestapo—developed. Author and narrator Anne Nelson tells the stories of the famous and not-so-famous in the movement. Her German has an accent identifiable as American; it blends seamlessly with her English. Nelson's taciturn voice, a purring monotone, only strays once from her natural one as she shouts an angry quote. Both this work and Nelson's performance reassure listeners that many Germans so hated their Austrian führer that they were willing to risk their lives and families to subvert his dictatorship.
