2 - Fraenkel as a Social Democrat Practicing Law in Nazi Germany


Fraenkel took two main approaches to resisting Nazi rule: opposition lawyering and underground writing. From the very beginning, in 1933, he assisted clients by providing defense in criminal prosecutions, representation in labor cases, and general legal advice, as well as by engaging in legal consultations with colleagues. He also never stopped analyzing political developments.
