All Honour to The White Rose

Today is Monday, 22 February 2010.

On this date in 1943, three members of The White Rose resistance movement in Nazi Germany were murdered, after a show trial.

From their first leaflet:

“Isn’t it true: that every honest German is ashamed of his government these days? Who among us has any conception of the dimensions of shame that will befall us and our children when one day the veil has fallen from our eyes and the most horrible of crimes - crimes that infinitely outdistance every human measure - reach the light of day?”

We honour Hans and Sophie Scholl, and Christoph Probst, and all resisters against and victims of fascism.
