The peace movement began to take hold during the early 1960s. The focus was on disarmament, particularly focused on the dangerous implications of the stockpiling of nuclear weapons. During this period there were frequent “peace marches”. These photographs capture various events (c. 1962), in which extreme right-wing and Neo-Nazi extremists counter-demonstrated, asserting that the peace marchers were communists or worse. There was a distressing and pervasive strain of anti-Semitism in evidence. The anger and simplemindedness of these extremists is scarily conveyed in these photographs.
