Between its division into rival anti-Communist and pro-Communist organizations in 1922 and its decision to reunify in 1935, the CGT, France's largest confederation of trade unions, established its own vision of the threat posed by fascism. This vision was defined by its embrace of democracy, its rejection of violence and illegality and its support for international governing institutions. Confederal visions of fascism and anti-fascism evolved during the interwar period in response to a tumultuous political climate in France. Anti-fascism, as it developed, proved to be a vital part of how France's largest labor organization defined itself during the interwar period.
