UMBC now has trial access to the database:
The British Union of Fascists: Newspapers and Secret Files - 1933-1951.
provided by the British Online Archives.
These papers cover the growth of the British Union of Fascists and the impact of World War II upon them. The documents include both their official publications and the imprisonment of their leader Oswald Mosley.
The pre-war fascist newspapers include Fascist week, The Blackshirt and The East London Pioneer. Action was published from February 1936 until June 1940, by which point a growing number of the BUF were interned. Sir Oswald and Lady Diane Mosley’s imprisonment caused much debate. These papers include government records of why they were arrested and Oswald Mosley’s time in prison, with additional files.
The trial will run until October 15, 2019 and access is available on and off-campus.
Feedback on the content and usability of the database is encouraged.
