Yankee Resistance: The Story of a Small Connecticut Town that Challenged the Nazis and Won
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
In 1937 the German-American Bund bought land in Southbury, CT with plans to build Camp General Von Steuben, a Hitler-Youth style camp. However, the residents of the small town chose to find a way to stop this from happening. The newspapers across the country picked up the story about the small town of 1300 residents who were ready to fight against the seemingly powerful Bund, which many believed was controlled directly by Hitler.
