Summary:
The 62 Group, an anti-fascist coalition set up in 1962 largely in response to the resurgence of fascism in Britain, appointed Gerry Gable to work with their intelligence operation. This led to the formation of the anti-fascist magazine Searchlight, alongside Searchlight Associates, an information service aimed at exposing racist and fascist groups. Searchlight Associates collected material from a wide-range of radical right groups, primarily in Britain, but also internationally. They especially focused on the British National Party, Combat 18 and the English Defence League as well as the activist groups that opposed them. The results of these investigations formed the Searchlight Archive which is a major body of material documenting the activities of British and international fascist and racist organisations. It is also a unique archive, and is one of the most extensive and significant resources of its type in Europe. The archive features an array of material and documents related to the history of the extreme right. This collection contains booklets from both fascist and anti-fascist activist groups from as early as 1918. Coverage includes a broad spectrum of political propaganda penned by notable individuals, such as Arnold Leese and William Joyce, as well as the output of their opposition, such as the Communist Party of Great Britain and the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. The collection is vital for those researching far-right movements, anti-fascist activism, racism, Anti-Semitism, and radical politics as well as British and European history in general throughout the twentieth-century.
