The courage to say 'No' to JZK, Inc

The courage to say 'No' to JZK, Inc....
Now is a good time!
The courage to say 'No'.
The photo was taken in Hamburg in 1936, during the celebrations for the launch of a ship, the 'Horst Wessel'.
In the crowd, one person refuses to raise his arm to give the Nazi salute.

That man was August Landmesser. He had already been in trouble with the authorities, having been sentenced to two years hard labor for marrying a Jewish woman. We know little else about August Landmesser (born May 24, 1910, presumably killed February 1944), except that he had two children. By pure chance, one of his children recognized her father in this photo when it was published in a German newspaper in 1991.

Why does this picture bring tears to my eyes? I think because it symbolizes free thinking! In addition to courage, strength and individualism. BEAUTIFUL.
Thanks for sharing David<3
