British eyewitness recalls "terrifying" Hitler rally
bbc / Rachel Johnson

Daphne Brock was one of a number of women, now in their 90s, who visited Germany in the 1930s as part of their cultural education.

They were aristocratic teenage girls at the time and their experiences in Germany in the years leading up to the war provide a unique insight into the rise of Nazism.

Daphne tells Rachel Johnson about the "terrifying" experience at a Hitler rally.

Daphne's story features in Pick of the Week on Radio 4 at 1815 BST on Wednesday 23 June and in Dancing with the Devil first broadcast on Radio 4 on 16 June.

Both programmes can be heard online at the above links after broadcast.
