The aim of the chapter is to
broadly discuss the anti-fascist activities of
international communist-led organizations in Berlin, London and Paris, 1922–1940. The chapter elaborates on
how anti-fascist articulations of fascism as a transnational, entangled and
connected European movement empowered and animated
transnational cooperation between anti-fascists. The chapter presents a concise
overview of communist anti-fascism in Western Europe and discusses moreover its
conflictual relation to the Soviet Union’s foreign policy needs and the
influence of Stalin’s personal dictatorship on the
anti-fascist culture during the 1930s, concluding with the USSR’s final
abandonment of communist anti-fascism in 1939.
