The Swedish publisher Logik Förlag has recently provided a republication of the English edition of Corneliu Zelea Codreanu’s  The Prison Notes (Amazon; Logik Förlag). The first English edition came out in 2011 and was done by Reconquista Press, although copies eventually sold out, thus making the book unavailable for the last couple of years or so, until now.

Corneliu Zelea Codreanu was the founder of the Romanian nationalist and anti-Semitic movement called The Legion of the Archangel Michael, typically known as the Iron Guard or the Legionary Movement, which was most active during the years of the interwar period and World War Two. The Prison Notes are Codreanu’s final pieces of writing,[1] composed in the last few months of his life that he spent in Jilava Prison, between March and November of 1938, where he was imprisoned by the “royal dictatorship” of King Carol II. Considering that the notes were mostly scribbled in the dark with whatever materials Codreanu could find in his cell, it is rather miraculous that they survived at all. (more…)
