Otto Strasser (1897-1974) was a German politician and member of the German Nazi party. He was expelled from the party in 1930 for creating and leading a leftist faction called the "Black Front," and was exiled from Germany until 1955. He spent his years in exile in various countries. In 1941 he immigrated to Canada, settling in Montreal and later Nova Scotia. As a dissenting Nazi, he sought the downfall of Hitler by heading the Free German Movement and writing articles on the Nazi leadership for newspapers in Canada, Britain and the U.S.
