Here’s a couple of books I read when I was younger. The Silver Sword, although fiction, is based on fact and it tells the story of three children fleeing Poland from the Nazis. The Wave is based on a true incident that happened in America, were a classroom experiment to show children how the powerful forces of group pressure can lead to movements such as Fascism, goes wrong. The relevance of this is ? that during times of economic crisis Fascism/Nazism starts to rear its ugly head as scapegoats are sought to blame the problems on, and to those that think it can’t happen again, well you only need to take a look at the recent attacks on the Italian gypsy community, and think again, because it is happening. Their camps are being burned down and dead bodies were dumped on Italian beaches during the summer, covered with towels while tourists sunbathed oblivious to what was going on in front of their eyes.

When I was at school in the seventies the Richard Allen Skinhead books were al the rage. Turns out that Allen wasn’t a skin/suedehead/punk at all, but an old pipe smoking geezer who used to knock this stuff out pretty convincingly.
