1936. A new generation dreams of a Unified Reich. They are conservative, anti-liberal, anti-Marxist and racist. Léon Degrelle was one of them. The Belgian politician formed the Rex fascist party in 1936. During the Second World War he raised the Walloon Legion, a unit of the SS that fought on the Eastern Front. With the end of the war, in 1945 Degrelle was sentenced to death by default. He lived in Spain until 1994 where he had taken on a new identity, supported by the dictator Franco. As a military politician, Léon Degrelle symbolised the growing fascism that surfaced all over Europe in the thirties.
