Arthur Baddeley – North Staffordshire Miners’ Federation – Unsung Hero 1942

Arthur Baddeley is closely linked to the Lidice Shall Live campaign, having been President of the Federation at the movement’s inception. Of the Lidice atrocity, he said, “Though it has been totally destroyed, and our brother miners have been murdered, and the women and children battered and brutally treated by the Nazis, we say this village shall be remodelled and rebuilt, and the people shall rise and live again in a new spirit of fellowship and brotherhood.
