Synopsis

Jewish soldiers returned to Britain after WWII believing they had defeated fascism in Europe. Yet in London they faced a revived fascist movement, inspired by Oswald Mosley, stirring up agitation against Jews and communists. We Fight Fascists is the story of the 43 Jewish ex-servicemen and women – the 43 Group – who fought back. Their numbers quickly swelled as they were joined by gentiles and younger Jews, including hairdresser Vidal Sassoon, who used the tools of his trade – scissors – to beat the fascists.
