Abstract (englisch):

This article explores the contribution of “Alemania Libre” (Bewegung
Freies Deutschland), the most significant organisation of the German communist
exile in Mexico during the Second World War, in creating awareness of the crimes
committed by Nazism against the Jewish people. It focuses upon the collabora-
tion between German speaking exiles and the Mexican Jewish community, which
crystallised in the publication of the first number of “Tribuna Israelita” in December
1944. This monthly journal achieved an exceptional feat, insofar it gave voice to a variety of agendas: in favour of the Soviet Union, but also in support of the creation
of the State of Israel in Palestina, while expressing the local Jewish community’s
desire of belonging to Mexico. Special attention is given to how the discussion of
the Holocaust between 1944 and 1947, the period in which the editorial line of
Tribuna Israelita were in the hands of German speaking exiles, gave way to deeper
reflections upon anti-Semitism and racism, not only in Europe but also in Mexico.
