Nice. I found multiple references to antifascist groups forming in the
various Besatzungszonen right after 1945, but didn't see the shortened
form. (Overall, today's German Antifa is pretty involved in self-reflection
on the relationship between their theory and practice, including their own
movement's history, but the copious texts available online aren't sensitive
to linguistic or lexicographic interests so much. Looking in actual primary
sources is a better way.)
