Stand Alone

I believe the man on the photo is August Landmesser. In 1938 he was the only person, who did not greet Hitler during his visit to the Wharfs to meet the workers. Same year Landmesser is accused in violation of protection of purity of  the German blood by the Gestapo.

I found this photo very striking. A man stands in defiance to the crowd of followers. He is so profoundly alone and so profoundly strong.

  1. Yes, he married a Jew. Not impressed with Herr Hitler at all.

    His daughter also found that photo years later. She was proud. :)
