Abstract

One of the reasons Fascist régimes gave for intervening in matters of labor and industrial relations was that they sought to improve the social and moral well-being of the working class. Schemes to this end were developed in both Germany and Italy. In Germany the Strength Through Joy (Kraft durch Freude) and in Italy the Dopolavoro organizations provided a wide variety of leisure-time activites for workers. The following selection, an account prepared by the leadership of the Dopolavoro organization, provides some indication of the scope of these activities.
