The political activities of Karl Frank (a.k.a. Paul Hagen) in America during World War II / by Siobhan Doucette.
This thesis analyzes primary documents from the Hoover Institute and National Archives to explore the political career of Karl Frank, the leader of the German Socialist anti-Nazi group, Neu Beginnen. Frank from 1940 developed a position of preeminence within the German Socialist exile community in America. This thesis examines his work with the US government, in the anti-Nazi movement, and in the founding of exile organizations in America. By exploring Frank's activities in America, this thesis also looks at the circumstances of the German Socialist exile community. It challenges the assertions made by previous chroniclers of the German Socialist exile experience that in America the German Socialist community ceased to exist.
